DMC will have to replace a lot of quality seniors that had started for 3+ seasons and is coming off the first state tourney appearance in school history in 2019. DMC returns two hard throwing pitchers in Trey Castile and Kole Bradley that will carry the pitching staff, but also has plenty of depth that will get their chance this season. There will be a lot of new faces in the 2020 line-up, but all the new starters are more than capable to lead DMC to another great season and state tournament appearance.” Head Coach Derek Flack
