A few short years after struggling to field a full roster, Rejoice Christian’s varsity baseball team claimed a district title and came within one game of reaching the state tournament.

Head coach Casey Willis and coach Jake Russell took a raw, enthusiastic bunch and guided them to a 17-12 record, a district title, and a streak that included five wins in their last seven games.

Brothers Zac Hair and Dillon Hair became clutch performers, and Bryce Cabrera, Cole Kaleb Clyma and Jonathan Dietrick all made big-time contributions in a milestone season.
