Mason Jones had a great freshman year on the mound and at the plate. We expect him to continue to improve and lead us.


Coach Matricardi: "Loaded young roster that is ready to compete for a state playoff run. 3 power 5 commits that will anchor a deep talented roster for the next 3 years. They will play a tough schedule to prepare them for a postseason run. We will have 10 arms we think that are really good with only 2 upperclassmen. Very good defensively. SS Tripp Hannah is one of the best defenders in the state and JJ Matuson is a very good 2B that would play shortstop on most teams. Very talented group just very young as 7 of our 9 starters will be freshmen or sophomores. We expect to be a playoff team and to make some noise this year and the next 3-4 make a run at a state title is the goal”
