“Our goal this year is making routine play and play small,” Mills said. “We will use a strong pitcher that will help stay in ball games.”
Ben Jacobs, junior, with a torn labrum and Logan Ems, senior, with back injuries, will be out for the season. These injuries are disheartening according to Mills.
“The injured boys have been very supportive.” Mills said. “I feel for them because they have been working so long and an injury isn’t something that you have control over.”
The Lions biggest rival this year is Lake Oswego but they plan to face every game with the same focused attitude and bring the highest competition level as possible.
The team is scheduled to play in a jamboree on Mar. 11 against Century, David Douglas and Centennial high school. This will give the team the chance to see competition and play in game situations. It will also give the coaches to see the team’s potential and how each player does in a game.
