Coach Moore returns for his second year following a 16-13 record in 2014.  The Eagles have a great deal of pitching coming back for 2015 including Grant Sloan, Kellan Elsbury, RJ Wagner, Nick Prather, Jack Pilcher, Jake Lane, James Meyer, Ben Pinegar, and Nick Etter just between the 2015/2016 class.  The Junior class has several talented players outside of pitchers including Drew Bertram, Nolan Elsbury, Jacob Hurtubise, Jacob Hurd, Stephen Damm, and Jordon Cox.  There is also a very talented 2018 group coming up headlined by Riley Bertram, Stephen Karis, Kyle Callahan, Sam Edgell, and Garrett Hill.  Despite a good amount of talent, the Eagles will have to put together some key pieces that graduated in 2014.  The HCC and Sectional that Coach Moore and the Eagles have to get through will not be easy.  Local rivals Brownsburg, Noblesville, Westfield, Fishers, and Carmel will give them a run for their money throughout the spring.
