Coaches comment: “The Saints return seven varsity players from last year’s runner-up team. The pitching staff looks to be built around junior lefties Sam Grondin and Cade Murphy. The offense will rely on
experience to lead the way for the ball club. Timmy Avery, Michael Skowron, Sam Grondin, and Devon Paquette are returning offensive leaders. STA is scheduled to open the season April 12 hosting Sanborn.”
