X-FACTOR

Pitching Staff - Haines, Perry, and Russell lead a talented Eagles pitching staff.

Team Strengths

Episcopal has a strong returning team. They return almost their entire starting lineup and top arms. Team speed and defense is strong, pitching should be strong once again and their offense should produce runs.

OUTLOOK

Episcopal is led by upperclassmen with 6 or 7 of their starters being Juniors or Seniors. They have 4 seniors who are committed to D1 schools and 1 Junior who is committed. This group of young men will need to rise to the challenge of a very tough district that includes some of the top teams in the state.
