POTENTIAL EXPECTATIONS:
These Maverick players grew up watching Marvin Ridge compete for, and win state championships.  The 2019 club was within a couple of wins of seeing their own dreams come true.  Expectations will not change with the calendar.  The Southern Carolina 3A Conference will be a guantlet to run in 2020, but should they make it through, they will be prepared for another run in 2020 in the state playoffs.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
The Mavs have an ace returning, but should be able to help develop the depth of the pitching staff with their defensive play.  Offensively, the Mavs will look to create havoc and score with big blows, baserunning, and the small game.  Teams in the other dugout will be required to defend the field in a variety of ways.

QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
“I am excited to see how our younger players mix in and step up alongside our returners.”
