2017 Basic Baseball Capsule

BASIC

Head coach: Scott Baker, sixth season

2016 record: 36-4 (17-3 Division I Sunrise, first)

Returning lettermen (starters): Nine (six)

Top players: 1B Jack Wold (Sr.), C/IF Roger Riley (Sr.), IF Garrett Giles (Jr.), P/IF C.J. Dornak (Jr.)

Outlook: On the heels of their first state title since 1987, the Wolves still have big-time weapons in their arsenal.

Wold (.446, 5 HR, 16 doubles, 45 RBIs), Riley (.422, 10 doubles, 22 RBIs) and Giles (.418, 32 RBIs) should be among the team’s leaders on offense.

Among pitchers who threw at least 20 innings last year, Dornak (8-0, 3 saves, 0.32 ERA, 43.2 IP, 28 K) had the best ERA in Southern Nevada and will be counted on to lead a staff that was hit hard by graduation.
