Q. What is the main strength of your team this summer offensively or defensively?

"I believe our strength is the experience we gained last year. At multiple points during the 2021 season we had 5 or 6 freshman on the field at the varsity level. We return virtually our entire starting lineup and a ton of talented young players. We should be very good defensively and on the mound. A year ago our achilles heel was our hitting, which I believe will be much improved in 2022," stated Head Coach Andy Osborne.




Q. What is the main strength of your team this summer offensively or defensively?

"We have quite a bit of pitching experience returning. We do return 7 of 9 of our top hitters to our lineup. We will feature a strong infield and will be solid up the middle at catcher, shortstop, second base and centerfield," stated Head Coach Matt Nelson.
