The Warriors only lost 3 players with considerable experience from last year's squad.

Four 2017's will contribute heavily for the Warrior's in 2015. Jeffrey Moore- RHP/C/OF, Chad Benham- RHP/IF, Jaxson Willis- RHP/OF, and Dakota Goggleye- IF/RHP. Moore was an Honorable Mention All-Conference selection last year as a freshman.

Head Coach Jim Erzar, in his 34th year, has high hopes for his 2015 squad. The Warriors were a young team last year that competed well. They will return a good nucleus that gained a lot of experience. Despite being still a young team, Coach Erzar expects them to compete well in the section.
