Head coach: Blair Neagle, third season
2014 record: 30-6 (10-0 Sunset, first)

Top players: C Greg Sylvester (Sr.), P/UTIL Zach Trageton (Jr.), IF Chad Jones (Sr.), IF Josh Harmonay (Jr.), P/IF Cruz Daddario (Sr.)
Outlook: Back-to-back state championships lead to awfully high expectations for any team. The Crusaders, though, will have some work to do after losing 10 seniors to graduation.
“This will be a young team,” Neagle said.
Faith Lutheran returns some quality offensive weapons in Sylvester (.377, 8 doubles, 21 RBIs), Trageton (.398, 37 runs, 17 RBIs), Jones (.333, 24 runs, 12 RBIs) and Harmonay (.345, 38 runs, 24 RBIs).
“A difficult early-season schedule will give an indication of how this club can shape up,” Neagle said.
