Season Outlook

The Hickman Kewpies will have a senior-filled line up in 2018, led by four year starter and switch hitter Cameron Chick. Chick, a Nebraska recruit, will be joined by fellow senior college commits; Bennett Patton (Central Missouri), Xander Lovin (North Central) and Derek Abeln (Johnson County) to make Hickman an force in Missouri's Class 5. Watch for seniors LHP Jake Deakins, UTL Clayton Coy and OF/RHP Grant Paten all to have an impact on the mound and in the lineup, while newcomers Coulton Doyle (2019) and Teague Robertson (2020) will also see important inning for Hickman this spring. The Kewpies will need to find innings on the mound that was to filed by Trae Robertson, a Missouri commit. Robertson will miss this spring due to injury, but the Kewpies have the capable senior players that can lead them a long way this spring.
