Maize South High School opened in 2009 and in the spring of 2010 the Mavericks had their first baseball program. With no seniors at the school, 3 juniors and 3 coaches led the way for the Mavericks and recorded a record of 9-12. The Mavericks were not assigned a league that year so they traveled to Dodge City, Garden City, Hays, and Emporia for their road games while having a few at home. In 2011, the Mavericks led by their 3 seniors, qualified for the 4A State tournament with a 15-9 record by defeating Kingman (10-0), Andale (7-0) and Clearwater in the regional championship (9-0) to start a tradition of state tournament appearances.
The Mavericks have qualified for the Kansas state tournament 5 of their 8 years as a program and compiled a record of 122 wins and 58 loses (.677 win %) under Head Coach Chad Christensen in their eight years as a program. The Mavericks have also produced multiple All-League, All-State, and All Metro (Wichita Eagle Newspaper) winners. Additionally, the Mavericks have produced two ABCA Region 5 All-Americans, a USA Today All-American, and a Max Preps All American. The Mavericks have had several players move into the JUCO and NCAA ranks.
The Mavericks breathe a rich tradition centered around commitment, discipline and respect. The 2017 club recently completed their 9th season with a class 4A-1 state title lead by head coach Chad Christensen. The state title is the first state title in the program's history and is the symbol for all current players’ hard work along with all of the great Maverick players who came before them!
