"The Wapsie Valley Baseball team will be very good in 2023. Returning 7 starters from a 19 win season. 3 top pitchers return with a nice group of underclassmen ready to step up. Wapsie will also be a top hitting team with many solid bats returning. Wapsie Valley will battle to win the NICL East conference title. Wapsie Valley is definitely a state contender in class 1A."
