Head coach: Gino DiMaria, third season
2016 record: 31-6 (15-3 Division I Sunset, first)
Returning lettermen (starters): Fourteen (five)
Top players: C Austin Wells (Jr.), 1B Nick Hernandez (Sr.), C Jordan Sadovia (Sr.), 2B Nick Israel (Sr.)
Outlook: The Gaels bring back 14 lettermen and should be primed for another successful season.
Wells (.415, 27 RBIs), Hernandez (.382, 6 home runs, 31 RBIs), Sadovia (.320, 28 RBIs) and Israel (.364, 19 RBIs) should be among the leaders on offense.
