Coach: Bob Blackman (13th year)

Conference: MVC Class: C

Last year’s record: 14-5, lost in Class C West final

Returning players: Seniors — Mike Bryant (P/1B), Mitch Lorenz (P/1B), Ray Mosca (SS/3B), Ryan Harvey (2B), Matt Keaney (RF); Sophomore — Justin Keaney (C).

Key losses: Caleb Dostie, Chase Hainey.

Promising newcomers: Senior — Caleb Labrie (UT); Sophomore — Sam Blaisdell (IF); Freshman — Gavin Bates (C/UT).

Season outlook: St. Dom’s has reached the regional title game in 11 of Blackman’s first 12 seasons, and the Saints should challenge again thanks in large part to the one-two pitching punch of Bryant and Lorenz. Dostie’s departure leaves a hole at shortstop, but the veteran Mosca is poised to step in. Labrie, one of the school’s best athletes, returns after missing his junior season due to shoulder surgery. Numbers aren’t overwhelming, with only 13 varsity players, so the Saints will need to stay healthy.
