Wyatt Harrar:
Wyatt brings great leadership and experience to our team. He was a starter on our 2021 district 11 3A championship team. We will lean on Wyatt to lead our team behind the plate and in the batters box.. After the season Wyatt will continue his playing career at Moravian university .

Chase Kimbel:
Chase was big part of our 2021 championship team. Last year he was part of our huge success playing in the outfield .This year we project him playing third base. Chase will play a big part in this years success ..

Kyle Kirsch:
Kyle started at third base last year. This year we see him playing across the diamond at first base. Kyle will be an integral part of our team as a leader on the field and batting in the top part of our lineup. I’ll

Tyler Bonelli:
Tyler returns as our starting SS ..Tyler brings great athleticism to our team. He is multitalented, and will play a more important role on the mound compared to his time last year. Offensively we expect Tyler to have another solid year at the plate.

2023 Outlook: We are a fairly young team with a few players lacking Varsity baseball playing experience . Our players know they have big shoes to fill from the loss of last years senior class. They have been working hard this off-season, and I believe they are looking forward to the challenge to prove themselves..
