2024 Outlook: “Our team goals are to return to the playoffs again and compete for the Laurel Highlands conference crown. We know it will be a very competitive LHAC in 2024, and we hope to be in the mix. Our success will greatly depend on developing the right mix of players defensively, the durability of our pitching staff (as we will have two of the top arms in the conference in Raho & Janidlo) and the willingness to take a team approach throughout the season.”
Josh Day, Head Coach
