STARTERS RETURNING                 7
RETURNING PITCHERS                  2

POTENTIAL EXPECTATIONS:
Seven starters and two of the top 3 arms return from 2019… In 2019 North Lincoln played well all season and played like a champion in the state playoffs, capturing the State Championship.  This will be a club that expects to defend their title all of 2020.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
The arm that left for college was a very good one and set a tone in their Regional Final and State Championship series.  For thhe Knights to make a deep run in May and into June, they will need a little more depth on the bump.

QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
“Looking to getting back on the field to see how much growth a year makes for the underclassmen from last year. being that the majority of our starting lineup from 2019 were freshmen and sophomores the hope is we will be stronger in all areas.”
