2021 OUTLOOK:
After a 4th-Place State Tournament finish in 2019, the Royals return three pitchers from that squad and will feature an otherwise new lineup.  This will be their first season in the highly competitive Northwest Suburban Conference.  As a team focused on pitching and defense, the Royals could make some noise if their new-look lineup can generate run support throughout the season.” Head Coach Brian Harapat
