Quote From Coach Schroeder
The Warriors return almost 90% of their innings pitched from a year ago. Replacing two 4-year starters in Cole Srajer and Corbin Wheeler will be a challenge on the offensive end as they combined for 68 hits, 89 runs, 57 RBI and 31 extra base hits last season and a combined career 191 hits, 219 runs, 146 RBI and 66 extra base hits Despite losing that production to graduation, this years Warriors team will feature 4 of its top 6 offensive performers back from last years state tournament
