The team played a tournament against Cooper High School on March 25 with one win and one loss. “I’ve always been big into the weightroom and that has always come naturally,” Vaughn said. “But I have spent much more time on pitching and my hard work is definitely helping me become a better pitcher.

This year, though, we had a very large team go from Cedar Park, and that honestly just made everything so much more fun.”
