Final Comments:
Our team is focused on rebuilding, as the majority of our players are Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen. We only carry two Seniors in the entire program. Pitching has looked like a strength so far and something we can definitely rely on to keep us in games. Our team's biggest weakness is simply our lack of experience. As the season progresses and that experience grows, I believe that'll start to translate to success on the field. The future looks very bright for our team. I'm excited about our young staff and young players, as we are bringing positive energy to every practice, every drill, and eventually that'll translate to every game.
