ACCORDING TO THE COACH:

"The 2016 season should be strong if everyone stays healthy. We have pitching depth with our top two pitchers returning. Sophomore Michael Maiolo (8-2, 0.99 era) and senior Brandon Chandler (5-3, 2.38 era) will keep us in every game. Junior Brandon Williams and junior transfer Cameron Pack will also see plenty of action on the mound. freshman Hunter Fansler shows a lot of potential and will see action on the varsity team. The infield defense will be solid with Fansler, Williams and Maiolo playing up the middle. Senior Dylan Foster is a solid catcher. Chandler will move from the infield and play center field this spring and senior Eddie Wilson will play right filed after a solid junior year. Senior Cameron Lane was the DH this past season and will provide a strong bat in the lineup. Lane is versatile and can play the infield or outfield this year. Sophomore Bradley Pack has great potential with a quick bat and will work into the line-up somewhere."
