Hylton enters this season looking to continue their recent run of dominance with new leadership and a new core of players. New Head Coach Jason Ritenour will take the helm after a successful run at Woodbridge as he looks to shape a talented group of players into a strong team that should compete for Regional and State Championships each of the next two years.

The Bulldogs will be led by senior catcher Riley West, who was 2nd Team All-State last year, and a talented group of pitchers led by Fox Semones (RHP, 2016), Trey Shepard (RHP, 2016), and Leo Patenaude (RHP, 2015). The Bulldogs have a talented, athletic outfield group led by Bryce Crawford (2015), Ben Marotske (2016), and speedster Blake Coleman (2016). Hylton will rely on its pitching, defense, and team speed to carry them this year.
