”We have some very talented senior athletes returning that we hope will gel together with the juniors and sophomores to form a competitive team. The leadership shown by our seniors has been tremendous this off-season. We return several starters from last season and have some very talented newcomers as well. I think this team has excellent depth in both pitching and with the position players. Players will need to understand their roles and be ready to compete every night. We play in the extremely tough CIML, where every conference game you will face state tournament type pitching and hitting. Consistency each night will be the key to the team that finishes first in the CIML this season.” - MARK HEY, Head Coach
