STARTERS RETURNING: 6          

RETURNING PITCHERS: 3           

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
A veteran team with 8 seniors leading a group that should swing it very well.  They have a team full of players that love and encourage each other every day.  Players take pride in completing the little things in hopes of accomplishing greater things.  The Lions return 6 starters from a team that finished runner-up in Region 1-AAA last season as well as 3 of our top 4 pitchers.  Looking to make a big splash in the playoffs.

QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
I am super excited about watching our team compete.  We have picked up right where we left off last season with a goal of accomplishing more this time around.  Our kids take so much pride in doing the little things right on and off the field.  I'm very proud of the senior leadership this team possesses.  They are ready to compete.
