Pancakes

MT. ZION, Ill. (WAND) -- They eat actual pancakes after "pancaking" defenders.

That says it all right there. This team has fun.

Mt. Zion is 6-0 for the first time since 2009 when the Braves ran the table in the regular season (9-0) and fell in the first round of the playoffs to Freeburg.

This year's record is noteworthy, but it's *how* the team is winning that's even more noteworthy.

After a series of years with offensive frustrations, the Braves boast speed, deep-ball ability and a raucous student section to back them up.

They also have enjoyed their new pancake tradition, which was started by popular trainer Dustin Fink.

Up next for the Braves is a road game at Lincoln on Friday at 7 p.m.
