Coaches comment: Epping returns with a very young team with only one senior yet has high hopes for a successful season. Our kids are young, but we have good talent. How that stacks up against teams like Pittsfield, Newmarket and Derryfield has yet to be determined but I like our chances. On the mound we will look to sophomore Simeon Mills. He has the stuff to be effective and is a workhorse. Also junior Noah Bilodeau, sophomre Tyson Dionne, junior Trey Loving and freshman Cavan Snell will pitch and junior Joshua Manninen will be our closer. Catching will be our strength with junior Jayden Towle and freshman Kevin O’Connell. I see bigger and better things from junior Noah Bilodeau (P/PF), junior Trey Loving (P/OF/1B), senior Anthony Spinelli (2B), junior Chris Chapman (OF/1B/P), sophomore Trevor Hovey (OF), sophomore Scott Johnson (INF/OF), sophomore Ben Milbury (1B).
Promising new players: freshmen Cavan Snell, Kevin O’Connell, Nico Spinelli, Tyler Witmer and Tyler Melton.
