”The boys believe strongly that they can make some noise across the state this year. We have everyone back plus a transfer who started for an area school. We've been very young the last two years and the boys saw their experience and hard work pay off last year with major wins over Hinton, Sioux City North and Central Lyon. As a coach I have about a dozen pitchers I'm comfortable with putting on a varsity mound, and we have more depth than we've had. We probably aren't on a lot of radars, which I like, but I know the boys expect to be good and to show the state what they are made of this year.” - SKYLER WHEELER, Head Coach
