REDLANDS COMMUNITY COLLEGE

SEASON

OUTLOOK

After an injury ridden 2011, the spring of 2012 brings a lot of anticipation to the Redlands Baseball Program. With a revamped pitching staff and additions to the lineup Redlands baseball once again has its sights on competing for a Region II championship. One thing hasn’t changed and that’s Redlands winning ways and the desire to be the best, both on the field and in the classroom. With the addition of several newcomers and returning sophomores, this season will be nothing short of exciting for the Redlands baseball family. It’s a talented group of young men; 2012 looks to be fantastic year for Cougar Baseball!

Go Cougars!

THE

COUGAR

The story of the Redlands Cougar is shrouded in mystery. The Cougar first appeared as the official Redlands mascot post-1970. Prior to that Redland’s (originally called El Reno Junior College) mascot was the Chieftain, which was chosen to correspond with El Reno High School’s mascot, the Indian. Now, this elusive nameless cat can occasionally be spotted around campus. Be On The Lookout! 16
