Undefeated: Whitko’s Winning Wolf

May 17, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — “What we are seeing here is the byproduct of four years of hard work.”

Whitko Head Baseball Coach Erik Hisner didn’t expect to have an undefeated pitcher this far into the season — but he does.
Wyatt Wolf, senior, is 5-0 on the season, including throwing a no-hitter earlier this year.

“It’s not something we emphasize with our pitchers,” Hisner said. “We emphasize controlling the controllable. Sometimes you have no control over your win-loss record. What we do have control over is our attitude, effort and competitiveness.”
