Charlottesville High School had a tough 2014 season. Fortunately, hope springs eternal and the Black Knights look to be improved in 2015 under new coach Eric Lane. Charlottesville will look to returners Drew Stavitski (IF/RHP, 2015) and Jon Harlow (IF/RHP, 2015) to lead the rotation. The Black Knight line-up will be built around Banks Northington (CIF/RHP, 2016), Jonah Franke-Fuller (OF, 2015), Collin Finke (C, 2016), and Paddy Johnson (OF/RHP, 2017). The Black Knights look to be more competitive this season in Conference 23 and the Jefferson District as Coach Lane shapes the program.
