With the playoffs approaching this week, the ‘Cats appear to peaking at the right time.

During the winning streak, the ‘Cats have outscored their opponents by a combined score of 60 – 5. Their average margin of victory is 11 runs per game during that span.

The Bearcats took on last year’s State Champion and currently top-ranked San Manuel on Tuesday. The ‘Cats will close out their regular season on Wednesday at Duncan. Wednesday’s game is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.

The Bearcats will find out who they’ll play in the first-round of the state playoffs on Thursday, May 1, when the AIA releases the State Championship Brackets at 2:30 p.m.
