The Colorado high school season is nearing quickly, and we're here to cover it. Over the next several weeks, leading up to opening day, we'll publish our team previews ahead of the 2023 spring season, touching on programs spanning all state classifications, leading into a countdown through the official PBR Colorado Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

Team: St. Mary’s
League: Tri Peaks
2022 Record: 19-9 / 8-1 Conference
Classification: 2A
Head Coach: Brandon Buchanan
Years at the Helm: 1st

This is a St. Mary’s squad that made it to the 2A state championship game last season. The Pirates’ program is smaller (only about 15 kids in the program at the moment) but they do have some talent and experience returning for 2023. Coach Brandon Buchanan is excited to have most of his main pitchers back, and they did get a couple of transfer players to deepen up this lineup and the pitching staff. St. Mary’s has to play a tougher 2A schedule, but they could make some big noise once again this year.
