2018 Spring Team Preview: Hicksville Aces

Team Name: Hicksville Aces
Head Coach: Tim Shock
Division: IV
2017 Record: 15-11
Conference Record: 4-3
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 6/4

Team Strengths:

  • Speed
  • Pitching

Coach Outlook: “We have the potential to be really good this year, but it will all depend on attitudes and how hard the kids want to work. We have a ton of versatility, so guys are going to move around position wise during the regular season until we find our starting nine.”

PBR Outlook: The Aces have had a very successful athletic school year (long run in football and basketball) and look to continue things on the baseball diamond. Look for Jake Greer and Parker Thiel to lead the way, but the Aces have a nice mix of upper and lower classmen that should be able to step up and fill their roles well.
