Central Bucks West Baseball Preview


Coach:  Brian Weaver, 6th Year

Assistant coaches: Bill Evans, Matt McCarthy, Evan Grzymkowski, Will Matteson, Gabe Hurtado

Last year’s record:  10-6 SOL, 20-7 Overall, District 1 6A Champions, PIAA State Quarterfinalist

Notable losses: Max McGlone (Army), Julio Ermigiotti (Lehigh), Kevin Bukowski (Widener), Matt Carr (Gettysburg), Alex Jenkinson (Haverford), Bill Zentmayer (PSU-Harrisburg)

Key returners: Sam Greer (Sr, P/DH), Quinn Illig (Sr, 2B), Alex Valdes (Jr, CF), Jack Hogenauer (So, 3B)

Others to watch: Michael Koldhoff (Jr, SS/3B), Jacob Greer (So, SS/P), Duke Psoras (Sr, OF)

Outlook:  “Coming off of the best season in the history of the school, the Bucks will look to be competitive in the notoriously tough SOL Colonial Conference. They’ll have to replace a large chunk of their battery this year, losing key arms in Ermigiotti and Jenkinson on the hill and one of the state’s best catchers in Max McGlone. But Sam Greer is back to anchor the rotation, and Illig, Hogenauer, and Valdes all return with postseason experience. The Bucks will lean on those steady returners and a cast of newcomers as they look to build on last year’s success.”
