Season Outlook

Nixa will led by trio of returners with post season accolades from last season.  Ace Akers, a Missouri State commit, will be the Eagles top arm and will see time in the outfield.  With Akers facing the toughest opponents on the mound, Crowder commit, Joe Reid will return behind the plate.  Reid will add some pop to the line, with Evann Long added more defense up the middle. The Eagles will look to repeat as conference champions and get back to the state playoffs in 2020.
