We have a handful of players in key positions back from our State Tournament run last season. We will need some new guys to step up and take over leadership roles after graduating three 2 year Captains. All in all we have a solid group of position players and a very good #1 pitcher, if we develop some pitching behind him we'll be right in the mix to make some noise in the post season again.” Head Coach Dan Cosgrove
