X-FACTOR

Sal Stewart  - The Vanderbilt commit returns for his Senior season after a monster 2021 season. He led the state in homeruns with 17 and helped his team reach the State Championship Game.

OUTLOOK

Westminster Christian is coming off a season where the got all the way to the 3A State Championship Game. Despite losing their leader and one of the best hitters on the team in Jayden Melendez, WCS returns Vandy commit Sal Stewart. Stewart dominated in 2021 batting .534 with 17 HRs and 40 RBI and was named the PBR Florida HS Player of the Year. On the mound, the Warriors lose Joel Pineiro, and will need to rely on Julian Hernandez and others to step up to fill Pineiro's shoes. Players like Rene Ramirez, D'Angelo Ortiz, and Allan Jorge will compliment Stewart's big bat in the offense and should be able to set the table for the Warriors in 2022.
