Seth Meadows, Util, Class of 2017
Adam Holdren, OF, Class of 2016 (34 runs scored in 2014)


SEASON OUTLOOK:
The Panthers return a large share of the contributors that helped lead them to a region finals appearance in 2014. With an additional year of experience under their belts look for PikeView to build on last year's 25 win season and No. 6 ranking in the final PBR Elite Eight poll.
 

According to the Coach:
"We should be a solid team with more depth than PikeView has had since the school opened. We look to build on the last two seasons as the majority of last year's offensive and pitching production returns. We should be among the top teams in AA."
