TOP PLAYERS (Listed Alphabetically)

Grif Case, RHP/OF, Class of 2014 – 2nd Team 3A All-State, 1st Team All-Heart of America League
Taylor Heidebrecht
, 1B/OF, Class of 2014 – 2nd Team 3A All-State, 1ST Team All-Heart of America League
Zach Robson
, 2B, Class of 2014 – 2nd Team All-Heart of America League
Dylan Seacat
INF, Class of 2014 – Honorable Mention All-Heart of America League
Brett Voth
, OF, Class of 2015 – 2nd Team All-Heart of America League

OUTLOOK:  

The Warriors return seven everyday players from their state tournament team in 2013.  They return five All-Heart of America League honorees including two 2nd Team 3A All-State team members in right-handed pitcher/outfielder Grif Case and first-baseman/outfielder Taylor Heidebrecht.  Marion only returns one pitcher with 15+ innings so the door is wide open for new faces to emerge on the mound.  Based on the strength of their returning position players, the level to which the inexperienced pitchers perform will likely determine the Warriors position in the Heart of America standings and post-season hopes.
