The Lions topped the Labette County Grizzlies 9-1 for their third straight win since dropping their season opener to Pittsburg last week.
“Obviously you have to have good players to win games,” Mercer says, “I’ve coached a lot of good players and had a lot of great assistant coaches as well.”
Mercer earned his first 297 career wins at Miami High School in Oklahoma. The remaining 103 have come at Baxter Springs.
“We have strong community support, and I think that has a lot to do with the success we’ve had. I think we have something special going on here.”
