”We lose 3 positional players and 4 pitchers from a year ago but we have a great core returning that have been working very hard this off season. This great core paired with more hardworking players that are coming up has set high expectations and big goals. We've had players step up into leadership roles and we feel confident they will lead their teammates to success! Our conference will be very competitive this year and we have scheduled challenging non-conference games to go with it so the Black Raiders are ready to compete!” - TREVOR MILLER, Head Coach
