ENID, Okla. — NOC Enid visits

Carl Albert for 2

NOC Enid’s baseball team will have a chance to move into fourth place in the Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Conference today.

Jets, 12-35 overall and 3-11 in conference, will visit Carl Albert (4-10) in a 1:30 p.m. doubleheader.

NOC Enid swept the Vikings, 4-2 and 6-0 Thursday at David Allen Memorial Ballpark in what coach Raydon Leaton called “our best doubleheader of the year.’’

Jets pitchers have shut out Carl Albert over the last 12 innings.

Austin Hannum will pitch one of the games. Leaton was undecided on his second starter. The pitching staff is fresh as Zach Postoak and John Chidester both threw complete games Thursday.

The Jets will open a four-game series with rival NOC Tonkawa on Wednesday. Single games will be played at David Allen on Wednesday and Friday and at Tonkawa Thursday and Saturday.
