The Greenbrier Christian Gators are a perennial power in the 757 and the state. What should we expect from the Chesapeake powerhouse? See all the details below. 

 Classification: VISAA Division II    2022 Record: 23-9 *Lost in state championship*
                    Key Losses: Austin Younce (VCU), Brandon Dahlman (Queens-NC), Gavin                                         Whitehurst (Lincoln Memorial)
                    New Face: Payton Shipman (Delaware)

Greenbrier Christian lost a lot of talent and experience from 2022, but the Gators return an important arm that will allow them to compete with almost anyone. Nico Angrisani (Bridgewater) saw a jump in velo late in the summer and should be their go to arm. The Gators have a talented lineup that returns UVA commit, Bubba Sawyer, as well as one of the best uncommitted bats in the state, Tucker Rupe. Some of the arms are young and unproven on the varsity level, but Greenbrier Christian has the offensive potential to allow those arms to learn on the run.
