2016 Spring Team Preview: Woodhaven Warriors

Team Name: Woodhaven Warriors
Head Coach: Corey Farner
Division: I
2015 Record: 27-8
Conference Record: Downriver League, 13-5
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 5/3

2016 Team Strengths: This year's team will be versatile. We will have a lot of pitching depth. A lot of guys that throw strikes. Hitting wise we return two of the better hitters in our area. 2016 Nolan Schewe and 2017 Brad Deboutte. Defensively we should be solid all around.

2016 Team Weaknesses: We graduated many talented seniors last year. Waiting to see how our younger talent fills some roles.

Coach Outlook: "This season we have some solid returners from last years successful team. We will also have some talented underclassmen stepping into bigger roles. I am excited about the good mix. It will be interesting to see how we put it together."
