With the boys baseball team winning sectionals and coming runner-up in regionals
last season, they have a lot to live up to. With five returning seniors this year, they plan to do everything they can to bring home a state title.
Senior, and USI commit, Drew Taylor, has a lot of hope in his team.“Losing seven seniors in all, and four starters, is going to be tough and no doubt will put a toll on our team,” he said. “But I have all the faith in the world that our new, and returning players, can get just as far, and hopefully further, than we did last year.”
The team finished with a winning season last year, going 24-6.
They project to continue their incredible accomplishment in the 2019 season. Despite having most of their players returning this year, the boys also have a talented freshman class joining them. According to incoming freshman Chate Amick, “The upperclassmen go out of their way to make sure we feel welcomed and are always teaching us new things to help us prepare for our first high school season.”
The team started the regular season on March 29. “We hope to see you come out this spring and support your Red Devils!” Amick said.
