Season Outlook
The Carl Junction Bulldogs enter the 2017 season as the number nine ranked team in Missouri's Class 4 as they look to defend their district championship and get back into the state playoffs. The Bulldogs will compete in the large school Central Ozarks conference for the first time and return two position players and one pitcher from a year ago.  Hunter Adams, a senior with All-District honors from last spring, will lead the way for the Bulldogs.  The Bulldogs will have many new faces at the varsity level in 2017, and will have increased roles for many seniors as they compete for their fifth district title in the last ten seasons.
