Season outlook: The Raiders have a solid nucleus of talent with Bannister, Therrien and Martin. Bannister, a four-year starter, batted .414 as a junior. Therrien led the team in six offensive categories. The pitching rotation will be new after the graduation of Oak Hill’s top three arms. Defense and small-ball are points of emphasis while the new players gain experience. The Raiders won at York in the 2014 quarterfinals and believe they can return to the playoffs and compete with the Class B powers once again.
