Coach’s Comments: We’re looking to continue positive growth that was exhibited last year. Our core is young, so we will be relying on strong senior leadership to pave the way for success.

Teams to watch: Exeter has a strong lineup and pitching staff. Coming off back to back championships, I’d say that until they lose, they should always be considered the favorite. Pinkerton has an arsenal of arms as well as a strong lineup. Bishop Guertin boasts a very strong pitching staff and a slew of experienced seniors, and Londonderry may sneak up on a few people. They are extremely deep in pitching.
