Coach's Expectations

"Like many teams, we are going to rely on our pitching. Our arms are talented, but unproven. We've also had some injuries already this fall/winter. If we get back to full strength on the mound we have a great chance to make the playoffs and make a deep run. We only have 5 seniors (1 starter), so the future is bright."

Team Strengths

Team speed and defense. 

Areas of Improvement

Experience on the mound and finding ways to be more consistent offensively.
