Season Outlook
The Bishop Miege Stags will return six position players and three pitchers from their team that lost in the first round of the state tournament last season.  They will a talented senior class, but the junior class will play a key role the teams success.  Senior pitchers Adam White, a Cowley County recruit, and Daniel Harper, a Kentucky recruit, will be a formidable one-two punch.  Juniors Carter Putz (Notre Dame) and Paul Wendling (Indiana State), each earned All-EKL honors last season and have high expectations this spring. Look for juniors Ethan Axman and Nick Purcell to round out the staff, making the Stags a contender in 4A-D1.
