X-FACTOR
Leadership: Even with significant returners from last year who contributed; the Athletics will have young players filling key roles this season and will need leadership and direction from the upperclass players.

UNDERCLASSMAN TO WATCH
Daniel Bollingberg, 2016, 2B/RHP. Bollingberg has been a starter since 8th grade. The 2-way player has already been awarded 3X All-Conference, 3X All-Section, and 2X Co-Team MVP accolades.

2015 OUTLOOK
Lyle-Pacelli returns 7 starting position players and 3 pitchers who logged at least 15 innings each. Coming off their third Conference Championship in a row; the Athletics look to keep that streak alive. They will be led by Minnesota State commit- Jordan Hart. Hart, a SS/RHP, is a 2-year captain and is looking to build upon last season where he hit .539 with 17 extra base hits, 42 RBI's, and stole 16 bases; along with posting a 5-2 record on the mound with a 2.74 ERA. Having the one two punch of Hart and Bollingberg on the mound; the Athletics are eager to start their season.
