2020 OUTLOOK:
We have some real talent that is becoming confident. The kids are working hard and their sacrifices are about to be on display as the team continues to improve. There is a buzz about this team as we are returning 7-8 daily starters to the lineup and every inning on the mound, plus the addition of a number of juniors to provide daily competition, the Wahawks are optimistic for the season. The team really came on at the end of the season as the core youth were developing. The Wahawks are excited for the season and feeling confident in their continued development.” Head Coach Chad Crosby
