The Golden Tornados return their top three hitters from a 2017 run to the State Semi-Finals.  Led by Trevor Kniskern who hit 432, Pompano also has  Mike Schuler who hit .407 and Chase Costello who hit .329 returning. The 1-2-3 punch will lead the way offensively for Pompano. On the mound, both Kniskern and Costello lead the way again. Kniskern was 11-1 with a 1.08 ERA  while Costello was 7-1 with a 2.04 ERA. Pompano is a talented team overall, but the three talented seniors lead the way and bring Pompano Beach in at No. 13 in the Preseason Power25.
