Outlook:  “Our team returns 11 Varsity players including six starters. Among those starters are 1st team SS Ryan Zuckerman, 1st team 2B James Schaffer, 2nd team 3B Joe Tiroly, 2nd team Pitcher Kayden Faulcon, HM OF Jackson Freeman, and HM 1B Sam Labrecque. We also return sophomore Ryan Webber who saw starts at 3b and 1b last year, as well as two players who started games for us in the OF in juniors Jordan Czerniak and Charlie Cordisco.
“After losing our two starters and our first reliever off the mound, we will look to returning reliever Derek Dilorenzo and a stable of newcomers to compete for innings and establish themselves in the rotation.

It’s always a blessing to compete in the strongest and most successful league in PIAA. Every game will be highly competitive at the 6A level which will prepare us for the postseason. I believe that we have the talent and depth to compete for an SOL Patriot Division title as well as in District 1 and State playoffs.”
