Team Expectations

It was a young team last year but this season they have 10 returners and 5 from the starting lineup. Looking at a strong pitching staff to carry the team while the offense continues to build from the previous season. The Condors are in the mix for a league title and pushing for a strong run in the CIF playoffs
