SEASON OUTLOOK
Centreville had a solid 2015 regular season that was followed by a deep postseason run that saw them push archrival Chantilly to the brink in the 6A North Regional Semi-finals before being eliminated. The Wildcats graduated a lot of starters but will again have a veteran squad anchored by twelve seniors. The Wildcats will have a deep team that plays blue-collar baseball in an incredibly competitive Concorde Conference. When Bach is on the mound, Centreville is capable of playing with anyone in the Commonwealth, watch for the Wildcats to be dangerous again in the postseason in 2016.
