Top players: C/P/UTL Anthony Cornwall (Sr.), IF Drake Staheli (Sr.), OF Dayton Woofly (Sr.), OF/P Tyler Petersen (Sr.), OF/IF Chase Guessman (Jr.)

Cornwall (.495), Staheli (.380), Woofly (.333), Petersen (.300) and Guessman (.285) all return to spark the offense.

“The team will be better than last year,” McCann said. “We will play an upbeat tempo, running, stealing and with better defense.”
