The Mexico Bulldogs played to their highest winning percentage in six seasons.

The baseball team finished with an overall record of 15-10 (North Central Missouri Conference record of 5-5) to own a 60 percent winning percentage for the program’s highest mark since the 73.1 percentage during the 19-7 season in 2015. Five Bulldogs were recognized for their roles in this feat including senior Daeye Miller, junior Jack Wilburn, junior Andrew Runge, junior Tyler Thoenen and senior Tristan Playter.

Fresh off his first team all-conference basketball season, Miller earned all-conference baseball honors after hitting .369 with 31 hits and 19 stolen bases.
Wilburn was added to the all-conference team as a pitcher after going 8-1 on the mound with a 2.90 ERA.

Runge was named to the all-district team, along with Thoenen and Playter, after hitting .407 this season. Thoenen and Playter owned respective batting averages of .368 and .283.

Mexico’s season ended in the first round of the Class 4 District 8 Tournament after a 6-5 loss to conference rival Fulton. Playter was 2-for-3 in his final high school game while Miller went 1-for-4 with a stolen base.
