Central Kitsap Baseball
Head coach: Bill Baxter
2018 record: 14-10 (10-4)
Key players: Owen Davies, sr., pitcher/infielder; Greyson McCormick, sr., shortstop/pitcher; Austin McMinds, sr., catcher/outfielder; Malo Castro, sr., second base; Kade Coombe, jr., third base/pitcher.
Outlook: The Cougars have a deep and talented pitching staff returning from last year’s 3A state team and should be one of the stingier teams around. They will have to replace a few of their best offensive players to graduation, but should still push across enough runs to compete for another league title and get back to the state tournament.
