2021 OUTLOOK:
We should have a productive pitching staff returning. We have some solid returning play coming back but we will need to replace some very productive hitters that graduated last year. We have a chance to be a competitive team but our success will depend on the leadership of the returning players and how well we can fill in the gaps from last year's graduates.” Head Coach Travis Nedved
