Coach’s comments: “Last year our record wasn’t as strong, but we were in every game. We played a lot of freshmen and sophomores last year so our young players gained good experience. We have a lot of positives with this group. Pitchers 1, 2 and 3 are back. Statistically, last year we had our second-best fielding percentage as a team since I’ve been here.
“Our permanent indoor hitting facility will improve our hitting. We need to play smart and find ways to squeeze more runs. Our young players took their lumps last year but it will pay big dividends this year. Our schedule is always tough. This year is no exception – the defending state champion is in our sectional.”
