Sunflower seeds and warm weather have finally come into full swing. Boys baseball season is in full effect.

The Rangeview Raiders have started off the season with a record of 3-3 and look to improve throughout the rest of the season.

The Raiders are under new facilitation with the addition of a new head coach. Head coach Rick Spriggs is taking his first crack at the varsity boys’ team. Last season, the Raiders were under former Rangeview teacher Brian Gausman’s leadership.

Rangeview’s first match-up was against Smoky Hill and came out as the victor 5-2. After a hot start, they lost to Lincoln High School 2-0. Their third ball game was against Castleview (13-0), and they then went on to lose against Boulder 7-0. Rangeview is now currently on a two-game win streak, with a victory over Gateway 11-1 and Sheridan 12-2.

Senior Isaiah Carrillo had pretty specific plans for the rest of the season, “Right now it’s to keep working hard and [believing] in ourselves.”

Rangeview has had a rocky season so far, but a crucial win, such as the one against Gateway, is what keeps the team motivated.

When asked about the victory over Gateway, senior Jared Clanton stated, “It was amazing. It shows that we’re coming back and finding our swing again.”

The Raiders have high hopes going into their next game is tomorrow at Denver South High School, which was postponed due to weather.
