Coaches comment: We lost six three-year starters to graduation.  Pitching is going to be a huge hole for us to fill. Two-thirds of our innings pitched the last two years were done by two players who are now gone.  We’ve been working 10 guys on the mound during early season workouts in hopes of finding five or six who can pitch at this level. I expect we may take some lumps early on as we try to figure out who is going to fill what roles. The goal is to have it all come together prior to tournament time and then see if we can do some damage in the playoffs.

Top teams in Division Iv figure to be Newmarket, Pittsfield, Sunapee and Wilton-Lyndeborough.
