Record: 22-2

Accolades: Conference 29 Champions, 3A West Region Champions

Postseason Run: Wins: Waynesboro (10-0), Monticello (10-5), Western Albemarle (10-0), Lord Botetourt (6-2), Abingdon (5-4), Brookville (4-0).

Key Players: Senior Justin Showalter (James Madison) has been dominant in his starts all year and senior C/OF Cody Warner (VMI) has been very good at the plate and showing off his athleticism playing centerfield for TA out of neccessity, though he may move back behind the plate in college. His versatility combined with his demeanor is why the Knights hope he is up to the plate in a big situation. 2018 SS Tanner Morris mans the top of the TA lineup and middle infield. That swing will play in college. 2018 Waring Garber give the Knights a legitimate No. 2 in the rotation with his three pitch arsenal and ability to pump the strike zone. Jesse Showalter gives the Knights some bullpen help and another stick in the lineup.
