The Grand Junction Tigers baseball team is getting ready to open play on March 8, 2018 against Horizon High School at Suplizio Field. When the season rolls around take a look at the 2018 varsity baseball roster, you’re going to notice some unique differences compared to last year’s roster. Twelve seniors graduated last year;  this means that there will be a shortage of senior leadership on this year’s team.

The Tigers will  rebuild and reload with three seniors.  Those seniors are, Garrett Larsen, Matt Lowell and Mason Naramore.

Every senior at the varsity level has something to look forward to in their last year playing high school sports.  These   3 seniors, are no different and all have goals to accomplish this season.

Senior first baseman Garrett Larsen has twin brothers, Cordell Larsen and Dakota Larsen, that are both sophomores in the baseball program. Because this is Larsen’s last year playing with his brothers, he has a lot to look forward to. “I think it’s cool that I have an opportunity to play with my brothers, it’s something that I’ve always looked forward to and dreamed of,” said Larsen.

Senior pitcher Matt Lowell has his sights focused on one thing and one thing only, which is having fun. “Getting as far as we can with the great group of guys that we have is something that I’m looking forward to a lot, and having fun in the process,” said Lowell.

Senior second baseman Mason Naramore is prepared to make a huge impact for the Tigers this season. Naramore has  tremendous goals that he’s hoping will lead the Tigers to the pinnacle that every high school athlete chases, a state championship. “I want to help the team as much as possible, try to make playoffs and win a state championship,” said Naramore.

Even though there are only 3 seniors, nothing says that they can’t take over and carve pathways for the younger players as they lead the way. No matter what obstacles obstruct the Tigers, all they’re going to do is play with grit and grind through whatever steps in their way while having fun in the process.
