This year Head Coach Jeff Helmbrecht and assistant Mike Nolan will return in hopes of leading our baseball team back to sectionals, where the team placed for the first time in program history in 2015.
The team is returning virtually every key member from last year’s team, and is anchored by their three headed monster of a pitching rotation in Jackson Winkelsas, Ahmed Morales, and Brett Owens (all juniors). Yamil “Pudge” Cruz and Xavier Herrera have been handle the duty behind the plate, with Ryan Davis holding down the hot corner at 3rd.
Freshman Jason “More Than” Abel has been a pleasant surprise at second base in his first year on the team. The coaching staff will look at seniors Ray Flis, Nomar Maritnez, and Darryl Steele for leadership as the season continues. Other players returning from last year’s team are Jose Martinez, Quincy Moran and Bobby Greening. First year player Nick Szlis was thrown in the starting lineup and has been producing, while fellow first year players Irving Vazquez, Demetrius Jefferson and Elijah Kirkland will look to gain experience and contribute throughout the year as well.
Due to weather and constant rescheduling of games, the best way to keep up with the team’s schedule is on their MaxPreps page.
