Final Comments:
Team strengths this year will be that we return all of our pitching and varsity roster besides 2 graduating seniors. Our weakness will be not giving up the big innings in errors that cost us the games several times last season. Our team outlook is to compete for the KMAC title, and advance in the state tournament.
