Outlook/Coach’s comments: PCA is excited to have five starters returning from our 2019 season. The Eagles are hoping to get a solid performance early in the season from returning starters Will Kuzman, Maxx Spinelli, Sam Crisp, Coleman Philbrick and Harry MacDougall. Two returning players, Kuzman and Spinelli were Third Team All-State selections in 2019. The Eagles pitching in 2019 began to really take shape late in the season with two returning seasoned starters (Spinelli, Kuzman). With the addition of some new arms and young talent, the Eagles should have a deeper pitching group this season. Offensively, PCA is returning a solid hitting team and has high expectations for the new players. We expect great things from returning varsity and new players: Sr. Caleb Cook, Jr. Dylan Thyng, Fr. Ike Kohl, and Fr. Jason Ludwig.
PCA is scheduled to open on the road this season on April 14th traveling to Division 2 Oyster River.
