Prep Baseball Report Kansas

As we prepare for the upcoming 2015 high school season, we will be taking a preseason glimpse at programs from around the state.

Team: Lakin
Nickname: Broncs
Class: 3A
League: High Plains
Head Coach: Steve Davidson
Years as Head Coach at School: 19
2014 Overall Record: 14-8
2014 League Record: 5-1
2014 League Finish: 1st
2014 Post-Season Finish: Lost in regional semi-final

Returning Starters: 6
Pitchers with 15+ Innings Returning: 3

TOP RETURNERS (College Commitment)
Matt Armstrong, C, 2015
Ryder Yakel, RHP/3B, 2016
Caleb Seeger, RHP/OF, 2015
Pancho Klassen, 1B, 2015

X-FACTOR
Matt Armstrong.
All-League catcher returns for his senior year to lead the Broncs after hitting .524 with 34 runs scored and 30 RBI last spring

NEWCOMER TO WATCH
Alex Perez, RHP, 2016.
Perez racked up KABC 2-1A Pitcher of the Year honors as a sophomore at Udall last spring before transferring to Lakin. The righty went 13-0 (1 save) with a 1.37 ERA and 95 strikeouts in 61 innings in 2014.
 

2015 OUTLOOK:  
Lakin looks to defend their High Plains league title and make a state tournament run behind the strength of the return of six everyday starters and three pitchers with significant innings. Among the returners are four all-League performers from last spring including Armstrong, Yakel, Seeger and Klassen. The addition of Perez gives an already experienced pitching staff an additional boost.
