What the coach says:

“We have a solid core of returning infielders. This is a very talented group of guys who feed off each other and help ‘coach’ each other in practice. We have a true ‘team’ atmosphere and everyone is buying into our system. It’s a pleasure to come to work every day with these guys.

“We are very excited this year. Great attitudes are feeding off one another. We’ve already encountered some personal challenges this year, and they are bringing us closer together as a team. This team may have the most ‘baseball talent’ I’ve coached. We are really looking forward to an exciting year.” - head coach Scott Tower.

Lumberjack golf

The roster:

The Lumberjacks will take to the links with a roster that includes Robbie LaLonde, Colton Clark, Rick LaLonde, Tana Morgan, Toni Facteau, Zack Larabie, Katie Stuart, Nick Dukette, Ian Gillis, Abby Sexton, Jessica Fortune, Alex Lewis, Josh Pickering, Ben Geiger, Ryane O'Connor, Trevor Sparks, Hayden Poirier, Riley Amell, Nathan Yamrick, Nick Moeller and Griffin Savard.

What the coach says:

“We hope to improve are individual scores from last season with our three returning contributors (Colton Clark, Robbie LaLonde, Rick LaLonde). We are also looking to have three of our young golfers battle for the fourth and fifth positions in the lineup (Ben Geiger, Josh Pickering, and Riley Amell). We have Tana Morgan returning this season as our lady golfer and we are looking to see her improve on last season. She will be joined by Katie Stuart on the girls side of things and I hope to see both of them compete for top spot in the section for girls. The section is filled with some really good teams and we are hoping to work on our game so that we are prepared to fight for a section championship at the end of May.” - head coach Dan Cook.
