TECH

Head coach: Bill Stuber, 12th season

2016 record: 14-18 (9-5 Division I-A Sunrise, third)

Returning lettermen (starters): Six (six)

Top players: IF/P Trevor Kephart (Sr.), IF Chandler Gehring (Sr.), OF/C Jayce Otis (Sr.), UTL/P Gabe Kermode (Jr.), 1B/P Sean Jones (Jr.)

Outlook: The Roadrunners are riding a streak of four consecutive trips to the postseason.

“We will be looking to make another run for the playoffs,” Stuber said.

Six starters are back for Tech, which should get offensive spark from Kephart (.375, 25 RBIs), Gehring (.345, 22 runs, 20 RBIs), Otis (.383, 25 runs), Kermode (.234, 15 runs) and Jones (.268, 15 runs).

“Kermode and Kephart will also head our pitching staff with freshmen Jose Leon and Jason Collingbourne rounding out the rotation,” Stuber said. “Leon and Collingbourne, along with sophomore Oscar Reynoso, are expected to make an impact on offense as well.”
