Season Preview

The Cavaliers enter the 2021 season with high expectations. The program has enjoyed recent success, including an NJCAA National Championship in 2017, and are poised to make a run at another Region IV Championship this spring.

“The season has a bit of a different feel going in with the COVID situation and the lack of game experience our players have,“ says Coach Todd Post. “We have trained, as we do each season, to have our players ready in March and be playing our best baseball as we prepare for the Region IV Tournament the second week of May.”

The Cavaliers have a solid staff of starting pitchers led by Bobby Nowak, Kyle Iwinski, Dylan Wolff, Joel Holtcamp, Matt LelitoTrent Spoon. Gavin King, Tanner Sobkoviak, Trey Bryant, Gavin Nareski,  Josh Varner, Jake Pevion, Marek Bauner and Malachi Mabins will see action out of the bullpen. Josiah Zamora will start the season in the closer role.

The catching duties will belong to Kyle Czarnecki, Peyton Williams and Garret Latoz.

“We have talent and depth on the pitching staff and behind the plate,” Post said. “We will look to multiple players for success this season.”

Key position players that will impact the team this season include middle of the order hitters, 1B/DH Owen Jackson, 2B Ian Sanders and C Kyle Czarnecki. Outfielders Jake Vera, Drake Schrodt, Joey Humphrey, Tyler Jakob and Jared Holley will also see action this spring. Infielders Kelden Tyson and Josiah Zamora will anchor the left side of the infield for the Cavs. Matt Lelito, Nick Schindler, Mark Miller, and Trevor Meier will also provide depth in the infield.

“Our lineup will be able to score runs in a variety of ways and we will put pressure on our opponents with our team speed,” says Post. “Consistent pitching and defense are always the keys to winning a Region IV Championship.”
