Eight players from this year’s team were seniors and will not be back next season. Mason Rogers, Walker Davis, Josh Mangum, Wesley Anderson, Will Tucker, Devin Stroud, Brock Montgomery and Tyler Charleston all contributed significantly to the success of the team. Charleston sat out the entire season after an injury in the first week of the season, but was in the dugout supporting the team throughout the season.

The team finished the season with a 23-8 record overall, and a 5-0 record in their area to give them the area title.
