Season Outlook

The Bruins have won six of the last nine district championships, and have eight 20 win seasons in a row.  They will be young and inexperienced, but have a talented group that will keep the winning tradition alive. Rock Bridge will feature senior Brant Scrivner, a Neosho CC commit, at first base and in the outfield, while fellow seniors Devin Bernskoetter and Abram Benson will see important innings on the mound.  Bernskoetter will also see time in the outfield behind a trio of talented juniors.  Watch for junior SS Wyatt Towe to have a big impact this spring along with juniors 3B Spencer Miles and Noah Patrick behind the plate.  Rock Bridge has a talented sophomore class.  Spencer Nivens, Will Norris and Parker Wright will all be newcomers the will play important roles for the Bruins this season and in the years to come.  This group will look for the seventh district title in ten years and keep the 20 win streak alive.
