— This is a season of change for the Moriah baseball team.

The Vikings have an almost entirely new roster and have moved into Class D after reaching the Section VII Class C Tournament championship game a year ago.

“We are a young team,” Coach Casey Nephew said. “Our goal is to improve as the year goes on.”

The Vikings return seven players from the 2012 team that lost to Ticonderoga in section title tilt. Back are Tom Callahan, Dakota Marcotte, Dillon Adkins, Jordan Greenough, Tom Rancour, Christopher Clarke and Billy Petro.

Callahan, Marcotte, Greenough, Rancour and Clarke will all see time on the mound. Callahan will also play second base, Marcotte third base, Greenough the outfield, Rancour first base and Clarke first base and the outfield.

Adkins will roam the outfield and Petro will man shortstop.

New to the club this spring are C.J. Raymond, Austin Allen, Jarred MacDougal, Gage Denton, Sam Russo and Brandon Chappell.

Raymond will catch. Allen and MacDougal will pitch and play the outfield. Denton will be a designated hitter. Russo will play the middle infield and outfield. Chappell is an outfielder.

Assisting Nephew on the bench this season are coaches Jimmy Langey and Tim Breeyear.
