The Kansas high school season is nearing quickly, and we're here to cover it. Over the next several weeks, leading up to opening day, we’ll be publishing our team previews ahead of the 2023 spring season, touching on programs spanning all state classifications, leading into a countdown through the official PBR Kansas Preseason Power 20 Rankings.

We’ve submitted a Preseason Questionnaire to high school head coaches across the entire state. Their responses have been flooding in and we’re using the detailed insight they’ve provided in our team-by-team preseason analysis.


Team: Saint Thomas Aquinas Saints
League: Eastern Kansas League

2022 Record: 15-10
Classification: 5A
Head Coach: Lorne Parks
Years at the Helm: 23


The Saints will rely on a deep pitching staff and experienced defense to keep scores low and allow the middle of their order to change the game with a swing of the bat. They will need some newcomers to step up and fill spots in the lineup to balance their offensive approach.
