Holmen baseball enters season ranked 5th in Div. 1

Posted:
HOLMEN, Wis. (WXOW)   The prep baseball season is set to begin next week for many area teams. 

Mother Nature may be pushing that back a little.
 
Regardless, Holmen will enter this season with big expectations. The Vikings enter the season ranked 5th in division one in a pre-season poll.
 
The defending MVC champs return three first team all-conference selections. Like last season, they'll rely a lot on their team speed and a strong pitching staff.

"We have pretty high expectations.  We just have to look at each and every day and take each day as itself and meet our challenges," said senior outfielder Jeren Kendall.

"Our hitting is going to be huge this year, it's going to be really big.  Our pitching is going to be huge too.  We're pretty set.  We're all a pretty close group anyways so we're ready to go," said senior pitcher/3rd baseman Ryan Wesely.

"We expect to be really good.  We should be able to compete with anybody that's on our schedule.  We've got a good healthy schedule.  I think with the pitching we have, the experience we have, we have a pretty good offense, we have decent speed, I think we can compete with everybody," said head coach Duane Vike.

Holmen finished 11-1 in the MVC last season and 15-4 overall.
