Coach’s comments: “As defending state champions we will get everybody’s best shot every time we take the field. Our goal is to compete this year. Most of our players this year are up from JV; now they will get their first taste of varsity competition.
“Our younger kids will have plenty of opportunities to play. Defensively we will be solid up the middle. Our entire pitching staff is new. Our goal two years ago was to put together the toughest schedule we could to toughen us. It paid off last year. We have set the standard to be considered a top program every year.”
