Outlook
The Hawks are were in rebuild mode in 2017 an finished with a 9-12 record, their first losing season since 2008. Don't expect them to make that a habit as they hope to regain the dominance they had in the early this decade like 23 wins in 2012 and 22 wins in 2014, both of which led to state final births. Leading the offensive end is senior Andrew Lechner, coming off a strong junior campaign for the Hawks. 2020 SS/RHP Bobby Duffy came into his own as a freshmen for the Hawks, showing two-way ability for the team and that will be called upon again. Keep an eye out for 2020 Jackson Stocksill...
