2019 OUTLOOK
"We return 3 of our top 5 pitchers from last season, including our #1 in Cam Miller.  We feel we can compete with anyone with our top 2-3 guys on the mound.  We return some State experience and once we understand our offensive identity, we will should be very competitive in the (always) competitve WaMac East.  Our annual program goal is to get back to Des Moines and this year is no different." Head Coach Keith McSweeney
