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

Academy of Holy Angels

Team: Academy of Holy Angels
Nickname: Stars
Class: AA
League: Tri-Metro
Co-Head Coaches: Jim Page and Mike Rothstein
Years as Head Coach at School: Jim Page (21); Mike Rothstein (1st)
2014 Overall Record: 13-14
2014 League Record: 4-10
2014 League Finish: NA
2014 Post-Season Finish: Section 4AA Runner-up

Returning Starters
: 4
Pitchers with 15+ Innings Returning: 3

Starters Lost: 5
Pitchers with 15+ Innings Lost: 1

TOP RETURNERS
2015, Joe Sullivan, 1B/OF
2015, Kyle Schnichels, IF/RHP

UNDERCLASS PLAYERS TO WATCH
2016 LHP/OF, Shannon Ahern, is a player to watch for the Stars. Ahern showed well at the PBR MN Preseason All-State event a couple weeks ago and was an All-Conference and All-Section performer for the Stars last year as a sophomore.

X-FACTOR
The big question for the Stars this year will be their offense. Their ability to score will dictate their fortunes this spring.

2015 OUTLOOK
Academy of Holy Angels have moved from the Missota Conference to the Tri-Metro for the 2015 season. Expectations are high as they return 3 of their top 4 pitchers from last season. A solid group of 2016 and 2017's will be counted on extensively with only 5 returning seniors. Senior's Joe Sullivan and Kyle Schnichel made solid contributions in 2014 and should be able to duplicate and/or improve their production this Spring. The Stars will rely on a deep experienced pitching staff in 2015.
