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.

Returning Starters/Position: 3

Luke Belanger (SS, RHP, 2017)
Zach Day (IF, 2016)
Brandon Floyd (RHP/IF, 2016)
Daniel Jimenez (1B, 2016)
Andrew Maloney (OF, 2016)
Jamie Sara (RHP, 2016, William & Mary) Sara is a big athletic righty with a prototypical pitcher’s frame. He is currently ranked 13th in the PBR VA/DC Class of 2016 Rankings. 

West Potomac is coming off of a good 2015 season that saw the Wolverines upset early in the Patriot Conference Tournament and missing the 6A North Regional. The 2016 Wolverines look to again be a strong team that will have a strong stable of arms led by Sara, who is capable of beating any team in the State whenever he is on the mound. Belanger will anchor the lineup which will be strong in the middle and the Wolverine roster will be made up of versatile players, allowing Coach Skaggs to get creative with his lineup. If the bottom of the Wolverine lineup can produce consistently in 2016, West Potomac should return to the 6A North Regional and will be very dangerous with Sara on the mound.
