Preseason Preview: Episcopal Academy (Inter-Academic League)



By Greg Williams
PA Director of Scouting

The 2012 season ended in an even 15-15 overall record for the Episcopal Academy Churchmen. The 2-8 Inter-AC League record will be something that the Churchmen will try to improve in 2013. With strong pitching and defense returning an improved league finish is a strong possibility provided some underclassmen can step in and fill the roles of four departed starters. Coach Aaron Barras will be looking for the following players to play a role in the fortunes of the Churchmen this spring.
