Barton ends season with loss to Cowley in Region VI play
The Barton Community College baseball team had its season come to and end with a 3-0 loss to Cowley County Monday afternoon in the loser’s bracket of the Region VI Championships.

Barton wins 3 of 4 against Cloud to set up big final West weekend for Cougars; Smith sets career save record
The Barton Community College baseball team won a Jayhawk West series 3-1 for the 3rd time in the last 4 series. This time it was Cloud County the Cougars took 3 of 4 from, splitting games Saturday before sweeping the Thunderbirds Monday. During the win in the opener, Drew Smith broke Brad Schmidt's record for career saves at Barton with 17th over 2 seasons. Barton also took a pair of non conference games from McCook (Neb) Tuesday to improve its record to 24-19 on the season. The Cougars will be in their final West series this weekend when they travel to Butler to take on the Grizzlies. The rest of the conference has one more weekend but Barton’s bye date falls on that final weekend.

Barton rebounds with pair of wins Tuesday to split West series with Colby
The Barton Community College baseball team bounced back with a pair of wins Tuesday to split its Jayhawk West series with Colby. Barton lost a pair Monday then swept the West leaders on Tuesday to stay within striking distance in a jumble West race. Barton rode a 1-hit effort from pitcher Spencer Blades in the opener Tuesday and followed with a rally from 6-3 down in the 2nd game for the sweep. The games were originally scheduled to be played in Colby Saturday and Sunday but snow in that area moved the location and dates of the games.

Barton won the final 3 games against the Saints Monday and Tuesday at Larks Park in Hays. The contest was slated to be played at Great Bend but 14 inches of snow moved the series north to Hays and pushed it back 2 days. The Cougars lost the opener of the series before winning the 2nd game Monday and sweeping Tuesday. Barton is now 11-9 in the West and 16-15 overall. Seward fell to 8-8 and 19-13.
