The revival of the Keene varsity boys athletic program continues this spring as the Beavers will field their first solo varsity baseball squad in four years.

Keene, which played for two years as members of the merged “Beagles” along with Westport, did not field a team or join with the Eagles in 2012 but will field its own roster for the new season.

Members of the team include juniors Gabe Warner, SeokJae Hong and Maxx Sturges; sophomores Jesse Summo, Warren Ashe, Inigo Azcona, Austin Brown, Brandon Dumas, Joshua Haberle, Harrison Joannette and Colton Venner; and freshmen Caden Belisle, Justin Haverlick and Timothy Montez.

“We have a team of athletic boys,” head coach Fred Hooper said. “We hopefully will have a steep learning curve as most of the team has a little experience from the modified level. It is hard to put any pressure on this team as they have no varsity experience at all. They are excited and hopefully we can score some runs to go with a defense that appears to be pretty solid.”
