Season outlook: We graduated many key pieces from our 2023 starting lineup and pitching staff, but we return this season with a lot of depth providing competition to fill these spots.
Returning are all-league players Johnny Giordano (SR), Chase Olszyk (SR), and Colin Brady(SR). Joining them are several players with varsity experience and a slew of new, younger players who will look to cement their place in the next chapter of our baseball program.
A deep postseason run last year should provide this year’s team with the experience needed to compete in tough games, and hopefully give them a strong desire to once again play late into the spring. Getting there will be challenging, as always, with a strong Suburban One Liberty Division schedule in which every team is always in the mix year after year.
After opening up conference play at Abington, we will make our annual trip to the Jackie Robinson Training Complex in Vero Beach, FL and back home we will play a competitive non-league schedule. We are looking forward to celebrating the 30th anniversary of the 1994 PW Baseball State Champions on April 26."
