Baseball: Division III
Head Coach - Eric Anderson, second season as varsity coach.
After only losing two seniors to graduation, coach Anderson brings back plenty of players with varsity experience including a cluster of seniors; Ian Furrer, Dominic Strohmeyer, Justin Veysey, T. J. Slade and Michael Cavacas and junior pitcher/shortstop Jason Albert.
Offensively, the Chiefs probably will not possess a lot of home run power, but they have plenty of contact hitters and speed up and down the line up, that and timely hitting is really all you need to score runs.
Veysey and T. J. Slade will set the table at the top of the line up, with Albert, Stroghmeyer and Furrer being counted on to drive in runs from the heart of the order.
Defensively, Albert anchors the infield at shortstop, with Logan Little stepping in a short when Albert is on the mound.
The corner infielders will be manned by Cavacas at first base and Strohmeyer at third, while the speedy Veysey will anchor the outfield from center field.
The pitching rotation will consist of Albert as the number-one starter, followed by Cavacas.
Slade is the starting catcher with Jacob Walker, who should also see time in right field, as the back up.
Other players looking to create an impact on the field include infielders Howard Colton and Logan Little, and outfielders Tyler Francoeur, Furrer and Skylar Jarvi.
The Chiefs offense should be able to put some pressure on the opponent by making contact and using their speed on the base paths, but they also need to be aggressive and perhaps even take some chances in order to produce runs.
If their pitching comes through and they can play solid defense, the Chiefs could make some noise come tournament time.
Head Coach - Howie Paul, seventh season as varsity coach.
