Season Outlook

The Ravens return a lot of experience from last year's team that finished in the top four in Kansas' Class 6.  Central Arkansas commit, LHP Brady Walker, will be the team's number one pitcher and right fielder.  Senior 1B/DH Reid Seacat looks to build on his junior season where he earned All-State honors and watch for junior SS and Wichita State commit, Brady Slavens, to solidify himself as one of the top players in Kansas' 2019 class. The Ravens will be solid behind the plate with junior catcher Grant Howard and the transfer from Iowa, Wyatt Morgan will add another power left handed bat to the line up. Watch for senior RHP Drake Seetin to throw important innings for the Ravens this spring and have a big impact on the teams success. The Ravens look to build on their 2017 finish and get back to state tournament.
