Final Comments:
We return 14 of 16 Varsity players including all of our pitching from last season. This is a Senior heavy group (12), so we have a lot of Varsity experience. Most play high competition summer ball, with high baseball IQ.

Team is back to back league Champs & should be considered a favorite to win this season.

Consistent defense was our weakest area last season, but have influenced it heavily in the offseason & early on this year.
