DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) – The Wallace Govs are just a week and a half away from the start of their baseball team and for the first time in a quarter-decade, Mackey Sasser will not be in the Govs dugout.

The 2022 team has earned just one win after returning to Grand Junction for the Junior College World Series for the second time in program history.

A big chunk of that team a season ago was Wicksburg graduate Kade Snell, who is back for Governors this season.

First-year head coach Ryan Ihle says Snell has become the leader of this team.

Ihle also mentioning the close bond that this team has forged since the beginning of this school year.

“That team chemistry, that team camaraderie, you know that’s important long term and in a long 56-game season. So this group is very close,” added Ihle. “They were they were very close. They met very early and they kind of bought into each other. We look forward to hopefully returning to this tournament. Getting back to a place where we could win one game more than last year.
