STRENGTHS:
Our senior leadership is the strength of our team. We will be strong up the middle with Tice and Kessler returning. Kyle Peters will move behind the plate. Jared Schaffer and Oscar Mikols should be strong on the mound.
 
QUESTION MARKS:
The team will need the new additions to step up and contribute right away.
 
OUTLOOK:
We have some veteran players coming back and playing key positions for us in 2011. The leadership demonstrated by our seniors has been outstanding. We have some varsity pitching experience returning. If the players continue to practice hard and have the same goal - winning, we will have a successful season. The team attitude last season was phenomenal.   If all the new varsity players can bring that same attitude this season with the talent that they have we will be successful. Everyone knows about the success that Dylan Tice has had over the past few years. However, we will need everyone to contribute if we want to be successful.
