Season Outlook

The Willard Tigers should be very strong in 2020.  They return most of their team that finished 30-7 with a State Final Four appearance last season.  The senior class has a lot of experience at the varsity level and look to compete for the state championship again.  Watch for sophomore LHP, Kade Bielier and Eli Stoops to contribute on the mound along with returners Grant Harris and Garrett Rice.
