Conner Sneath – Frontier
Conner has improved his batting greatly since his freshman year. He has a lively arm, hitting as high as 88 on the radar. Also, his play at shortstop when he is not pitching was rewarded as a North Country All-Conference selection last spring. He is a great influence to work hard and push the younger ball players to buy into the commitment needed to become a winning program.

After taking a couple of years off, Thompson is looking to have a solid year. He has the talent to be an immediate impact player.
Jaxon Testa – Ponca City
Jaxon is due for a big year. He is a senior leader and will be the team’s No. 2 guy on the bump. Jaxon is a kid who is very good defensively. He has a consistent bat and should have a solid season.
Ryan Morgan – Tonkawa
Morgan will be the Buccaneers top pitcher this season. Along with a solid arm, he brings a force when he bats as well.
Levi Porter – Woodland
Levi, a starter since his sophomore year, is expecting a big senior campaign. He will be counted on to create havoc on the bases and be a table setter for the offense.
Underclassmen To Watch
Lane Thompson – Frontier
Lane is a player that can do it all. He is an outstanding center fielder, but also pitches and catches when needed. He can hit leadoff, or contribute in the heart of the order. He was on fire at the end of the fall, hitting .500 in district play to bring his batting average over the .300 mark. He is a super athletic player and continues to improve everyday.
Dayton Seelinger – Newkirk
Seelinger brings a great attitude to the team and he looks to surprise some teams this season.
