Tag: Winters Blizzards

FEATURE: Youthful Blizzards one of area’s top surprises in 2019

Picture a high school baseball team that has 10 players who are either freshmen or sophomores. 

Add a stat sheet that has only one home run for the entire ball club through 14 games. And for good measure, add the fact that the team’s top pitcher is a freshman. 

Now try to guess what the team’s record would be at this point.  Sub-.500?  Perhaps .500 at best? 

You’d be incorrect with both estimates. 

The team in question is the 2019 Winters Blizzards, who enter today at 10-4 overall (6-2 in District 7-2A), having already posted more wins than they’ve managed over the past two years combined.

Winters O-line ready to pave path back to playoffs

Folks in Winters can expect to see some heavy Blizzards this fall. But these are more likely to bring gold balls than snowfalls.

Coach Matt McCarty’s football team will hit the field this season with eight offensive linemen that weigh at least 200 pounds, including five that go 230 or larger, and he likes what that could mean for the success of his flexbone offense.

Winters Blizzards look to build on last year’s turnaround

A year ago, Matt McCarty’s Winters Blizzards experienced one of the Big Country’s biggest in-season turnarounds. The mission now is to build on that.

Starting the 2017 campaign 1-4 following consecutive 2-8 seasons, the Blizzards rattled off four wins in their final five regular season games to earn their first playoff berth since 2014. And McCarty feels the strides made during that run — and the added confidence that resulted — has the Blizzards well positioned for bigger things in 2018.
