Preseason Power 25 Countdown: No. 17 Eau Claire North
March 18, 2016
The Wisconsin high school season kicks off on March 29, the first day for regular season games. Most teams will begin practicing on March 21, getting their rosters set and finalizing their lineups.
Over the next several weeks, leading up to opening day, we will be rolling out team previews of high school teams all across the state and across all classifications, eventually launching our Preseason Power 25.
We have been sending out our annual Preseason Questionnaire to coaches all across the state and as the responses flood in we will bring you a snapshot of what to expect along with top players and keys to success for that particular team. If you don’t see your team’s season preview make sure your head coach fills out his Preseason Questionnaire.
Team: Eau Claire North
Preseason Rank: 17
2015 Record: 16-8
Conference: Big Rivers
WIAA Division: 1
Head Coach: Bob Johnson
Playoff Run: Regional
2015 Final Rank: Not Ranked
Coach Johnson and the Huskies should be one of the favorites in the Big Rivers conference along with cross town rival Eau Claire Memorial. Both North and Memorial return a hefty portion of their 2015 pitching staff's as reigning champs River Falls graduated a lot of senior starters.
