Coach Teta's Outlook For 2015:
Armed with 7 seniors the Sabres are geared for another run into June. Schalmont will return 2 of its top 3 pitchers as well as the starting C from the 2014 Class B State Champs. The outfield is expected to be one of the best in the Colonial Council with guys like Nick Bird and Chris Hamilton tracking balls. The infield will consist of entirely new players. The teams coaching staff is also entirely new from head coach to assistant coaches, making these next couple weeks vital for team cohesion.
