Ian Hall (3B/C, 2016)
Troy Mitchell (OF/3B, 2016)
Matthew Pulliam (RHP/1B, 2017) Pulliam earned All-State honors as a sophomore.
Connor Watt (SS/RHP, 2016, Patrick Henry CC) Watt was All-Conference in 2015.


Glenvar had an outstanding 2015 season that saw the Highlanders win the River Run Conference 38 championship and advance to the 2A West Regional before seeing their season come to an end. The 2016 Highlanders should again be a very good squad and will be anchored on the mound one last time by Duncan, who has been a mainstay in the Highlander rotation since his freshman year. Duncan will have plenty of help on the mound as Glenvar has been pumping out good pitching recently. There is a lot of experience in the lineup this year, but the Highlanders will need to replace the leadership of their 2015 seniors and the depth that has been lost with their graduation. Glenvar will compete to defend its Conference 38 championship and will be a dangerous team in the 2A West Regional this spring.
