Top Returners: Same as above
Impact Newcomers: Not newcomers...but younger contributors who will have a bigger role this spring; Chris Cavalcante (2025 RHP); Brighton Fontaine (2026 RHP...Alabama Commit); Aimon Chandler (VT Commit)
Key Matchups: Father Judge (3/27); Bonner (4/22)

2024 Outlook: “While we lost our ace from 2023 (Tristan Helmick...Lafayette), we return a deep group of arms that have contributed at the varsity level: Kochanowicz (Lehigh), Potter (Catholic U), Cavalcante (uncommitted), Fontaine (Alabama), Pye (Uncommitted), Crabtree (Manhattan), and several others. Offensively return several starters: Gannon (Scranton), Schmidt (Dickinson), Vozzo (Moravian), Provenzano (Holy Family), Massella (Marymount), Chandler (VT), Astolfi, Nealon, Hawley. There are a lot of younger players pushing for playing time that will give us a lot of options throughout the lineup. The PCL is poised to be as deep as ever with some power arms transferring in to add to a strong group of returners. If the pieces fall into place, we will be poised to compete at the top of the league looking to regain the PCL title and make another run towards a PIAA Championship.”
