As we enter February, the high school season is quickly approaching. As the month progresses and February turns into March, we will take a look at high school programs throughout our coverage area as they prepare for the 2016 season.

Covenant School



Team:
 Brookville
Nickname: Bees
Class: 3A West
Conference: 30 and the Seminole District
2015 Record: 11-8
2015 Post Season: Conference Semifinals

 

PLAYERS TO WATCH
Haydon Almond: (OF/LHP, 2018) Almond has a lanky frame and a lot of upside on the mound. He hit .420 as a freshman and also brings a lot of speed, stealing 25 bases in 2015.
Caleb Hanks: (OF, 2016) Hanks is a hard-nosed senior coming off of a junior year that saw him hit .417.
Desean Johnson: (OF, 2017) Very athletic, lanky outfielder who covers a lot of ground.
Josh McMillan: (OF, 2018) McMillan is a lanky outfielder hits from the left side and will look to build on a solid freshman campaign after a good offseason in the weight room.


SEASON OUTLOOK
Brookville is coming off of a solid 2015 season that saw the Bees narrowly miss qualifying for the 3A West Regional Tournament. The 2016 Bees will be a very young team without much varsity experience. The Bees will be extremely athletic and have a deep outfield and a lot of speed up and down their lineup. As the youngsters mature, Brookville has the potential to become a dangerous team and challenge for a trip to the Regional Tournament.
