Baseball Preview:
There are some big expectations for this upcoming Baseball season for the tigers they have 5 returning Varsity players who played last season.The team lost in the second round of the playoffs to cherry creek. The Tigers have almost their entire infield returning and they have a future Star in sophomore Derek Shaver who has just committed to Wichita State and is the seventh best player in the state of Colorado for the class of 2019. They also have Jax Nourse and Andrew Hansen who have played all over the infield and Nick Arceri who played center field.

“We have got a great group of guys and we are just ready to take the next step towards the playoffs,” Mason Narmore a second baseman, said.

The only problem the tigers might face is that the two top pitchers from last year graduated so they will have to fill a void there and they will also see a void in the big bat of Tyson Zanski who was a catcher for the team last year, but has since graduated. The tigers are poised for greatness for this upcoming season and hope to see great playoff success in the postseason.

Boys Lacrosse Season Preview:
The GJHS Lacrosse team is looking for a rebound season this year as the record of the team last year was 4-9 and were 2-6 in league. The team will be missing six seniors from last year’s squad. The team has a good young core though in Josh Newhouse, Joesph Hirschbul and Tyler Clow. The team is a good combination of freshmen, juniors and seniors. The team will be especially missing Javan Zadronzy-Hier who was one of the captains of last year’s squad.

“We’ll be better then last year, we’ve been getting better this off season and we’ve been grinding in the off season in the weight room, but were just looking to improve.”The Lacrosse team is poised for a great comeback season with a young and up and coming team,” Ryan Coffin, said.
