|CCS looks to community talent to help team|
The Claiborne Christian School baseball team has put together two of the most successful baseball seasons in school history under head coach Chad Olinde.
Olinde has led the team to consecutive Class C state championships and now he, along with many of the parents and family members around the community, are putting together the new and improved "CCS Diamond Club," that will organize several fundraisers and activities to benefit the squad.
The group met for the first time collectively last week. The group is currently taking membership applications with a fee of $55 that includes a "CCS Diamond Club" shirt, hat and vehicle decal. They have already ordered the state championship rings for their players and those are coming to the kids soon.
One of the main priorities for the club this year is organizing cookouts, car washes, and other fundraisers to help raise money for items such as a brick wall and new net around the infield of the CCS baseball stadium, a new lawn mower, and rails in front of the dugouts. Business that purchase a sign for the outfield wall can also join the club for an additional $35.
Membership is tentatively set to stay open until the early part of October.
Also in October, a new speed gun will be bought for the team. It will be on display at the fall festival held at Claiborne Christian during Halloween in a special booth where kids can test their arm strength pitching the baseball.
"What I really want our players to realize is this program is so much more than just about them," CCS head coach Chad Olinde said. "We are just trying to get people that care about our program involved and use their talents to help the program."
Jared and Stacy Frost serve as the 2009-10 co-presidents. Jim Spillers will serve as the vice president. Amber Matthews is the 2009-10 secretary while the "CCS Diamond Club" Treasurer will be Marianna Bell.
The group will meet at Claiborne Christian once each month.
