Team Outlook/Coaches comment:  The Hawks would have graduated 10 seniors last year, but the bad news for the team is that there was no JV season to help develop the younger players.  The program will have to rebuild with four players who were on the team as freshmen and a handful of freshmen who played junior varsity two years ago. With that said, the 12 players on the varsity have been working hard and learning the game one pitch at a time.  With a schedule of Pembroke, Merrimack Valley, Bishop Brady, Kearsarge, Hillsboro and Derryfield, the Hawks hope to be battle-tested come playoffs.  We have a ton of work to do to teach the game but having younger guys on the team who are hungry to learn is always fun. I look forward to seeing the improvement each practice and hopefully we will be ready to make some noise when the playoffs start.
