Final Comments:
We will lean on 4 very good arms in Tre Rex, Caleb Blawut, Trace Rutter and Kaden Jurosko. We’re very fortunate to have one of the best players in the whole state behind the plate for us in Treston Nemeth. We’re going to need guys like Jace Madzia, Cabot Arbaugh, and Kaden Jurosko to take another step offensively. I love how close this group is and believe we will have great team chemistry.
