SEASON OUTLOOK

In the past few season, the Eisenhower Tigers have been senior heavy.  In 2017 the Tigers will have a mix of upper and lower classmen fighting for varsity time as they look to improve on an impressive 15-6 record from a season ago.  Eisenhower will return 1st Team All State OF Tanner Congleton and will look for senior RHP Kade Short to lead the pitching staff. Senior OF Mason Elston will be a spark plug, leading the younger players with his energy and passion.  Watch for the underclass to make an impression on the team this spring as Eisenhower looks to get back into the state tournament.
