OUTLOOK

Calvary Christian comes into 2021 with perhaps the best roster in the state and definitely the best pitching staff. Headlined by the No. 1 and No. 3 2021s in the state in Andy Painter (Florida) and Irving Carter (Miami), Calvary added another big arm in transfer Nick Anello (Miami). Calvary added two more big transfers on the offensive side with perhaps the top shortstop in the state in Alex Ulloa (Oklahoma State) and one of the top catchers in the state in Rene Lastres (Florida). Two of Calvary’s top offensive returners are back in Ty Hollandsworth (HCC) and Kyle Tako (FGCU) who will continue to add to their dangerous lineup.
