The Jefferson Blue Jays have broken through a historic glass ceiling in baseball, but they’ll tell you their mission is far from complete.
Jefferson goes for a win in its first-ever state playoff game when they face the Cuba Wildcats Tuesday in the Class 3 sectionals on KJFF.
Jefferson has been scorching-hot in the last two-thirds of the season, winning 13 of the last 16 to get to 15-8.
Seniors Colby Ott, Dylan Schnitzler and Daylen Whitener brought home the Class 3 District 4 title.
Blue Jays head coach Robert Kuehnle says the secret ingredient is his team’s off-the-charts chemistry.
Cuba is 9-13, catching fire in districts after ending the regular season with a 4-game losing streak.
Kuehnle likes what he saw of the Wildcats.
The winner will face either Kelly or Portageville in the state quarterfinals.
Jefferson tries to upend Cuba in the Class 2 sectionals Tuesday afternoon.
Pregame coverage starts at 4:15 on AM 1400 KJFF.
