Coach Nowicki on his 2018 team:

“We expect to return to the sectional finals again this year with the goal of advancing to the state finals. We face some teams loaded with talent in our area so it won’t be an easy road but we return all but 2 starters (an OF and P) and will rely on a heavily motivated senior class to win those tough games.”
