Opening day for the Spring Baseball season, Feb. 25, approached with much excitement. The team looks to repeat a record-breaking season. Last year, the team set an Orange County record with 28 straight wins while becoming the CIF Division 6 champions.

Senior captain Javier Martin noted “there’s a lot to improve upon as we approach the season, but I think that we can do it. I think that we will be ready when it counts.”

Now, after losing three seniors who were the heart of the team, the Lightning moved up three divisions. Facing a tough test, younger players will have to step up.

“It will definitely be a lot harder this year. Our pitching staff has improved from last year, but we will need to find ways to get our offense going,” remarked last season’s 12-0 pitcher and sophomore captain Ashwin Chona.

The team did not lose any starting pitchers, but lost three starting seniors who contributed significantly toward last season’s run.

“I’m excited to get back on the field and see what the boys can do. We’ve got a lot of hype to live up to this season, but I think we’ll deliver,” said all-American pitcher and senior captain Brett Super.

Super and many other players will be back for this year’s lightning strike. Seven starters are returning this season.

“Our pitching is unbelievable. If we have solid defense and can generate some runs, we’ll be good to go,” mentioned senior Jack Pelc.

It is not as easy as it sounds. Some players are filling into new positions and young hitters are still adjusting to high school baseball. The competition is not slowing down, however.

“We’re approaching the season very quickly and we still have a lot to work on. If we want to be successful, we’re going to have to make the necessary adjustments,” said sophomore Edward Pelc.

Because of last season’s success, the team has been invited to the prestigious Lion’s Tournament over Spring Break. Over the course of the season, young leaders look to lead the lightning strike this season as the school’s baseball team faces its toughest challenge yet.
