2019 Spring Team Preview: Cincinnati Christian Cougars

Team Name: Cincinnati Christian Cougars
Head Coach: Curtus Moak
Division: IV
2018 Record: 16-8
Conference Record: Miami Valley Conference,12-3 (1st)
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 8/6

2019 Team Strengths:

  • Experience
  • Leadership
  • Starting Pitching
  • Offense
  • Defense

Coach Outlook: "I feel we should definitely make a run at the state title this year. This years team has 8 starters back from last years team that made it to the regionals only to lose in the regional finals. If we stay healthy, and get a little lucky along the way, this team has the capability to do some really good things."

PBR Outlook: Coach Curtus Moak and the Cougars fell just short of state in 2018 and with eight starters returning, the Cougars look to take the next step in 2019.
