UTA baseball hits its stride in back half of season

A little over midway through the 2019 season, the UTA baseball team is starting to find its footing.

The team has won 10 of their last 12 Sun Belt Conference games and stands with a 25-13 overall record, already surpassing their 22 overall wins from a disappointing 2018 season.

“You always wanna get ahead first,” senior pitcher Ka’ikepono Anderson said of the team’s first half. “The next few series, it’s time to lock down and bury the other guys. That’s how you gotta think of it.”

Anderson along with senior catcher Will Olson and junior infielder Josh Minjarez are all critical members of the 2019 squad, both in terms of on-field performance and locker room presence.
