Head coach: Antonio Morales, fourth season
2017 record: 5-19 (5-5 3A Sunset/fourth)
Returning lettermen (starters): Two (two)
Top players: OF Cecil Hall (Sr.), SS/P Brian Ruiz (Jr.)
Outlook: The Miners are coming off of just their second playoff appearance in the program’s history, but have a lot of holes to fill after graduation took its toll on the team.
Ruiz (.380 average; 4-3, 3.62 ERA) and Hall (.292) are the only two returning starters.
“Losing eight seniors from last year’s team will hurt, and we will be very young this year,” Morales said. “That being said, we still expect to compete for a playoff spot again this year.”
