BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — With only about a month left in the regular season, the Bakersfield Condors are making their final push ahead of the playoffs.
At a media luncheon held Thursday afternoon, both players and coaches told Eyewitness News how they're feeling about the season so far.
"The team's definitely, you know, going really good. There's a good vibe in the room, a good energy in the room,” Keegan Lowe, the team’s captain, said.
After a near record-breaking win streak last month, the Condors say they're more hyped up than ever for the postseason.
Lowe said the next few games will be critical.
"We have just over 10 games left in our regular season and we're getting prepared for the playoffs, and that's the most important time of the year. So, we're going to use these 10 games to our advantage.” Lowe said.
But beyond the team's current hot streak, Head Coach Jay Woodcroft says none of it would be possible without the help of the local fans.
"The crowds have been outstanding. I think there's a connection between our players and the community,” said Woodcroft.
And despite the stress and pressure that the playoffs may bring, Lowe says he's optimistic that the team can go all the way.
"I think it's the only, only way to view things. You know, we, we have a really good team, a really tight team. We rally together, we play a tight system. We play for each other and work for each other every game," he said.
