The Trojans return 6 starters from the 2012 campaign. The squad will look to qualify for the post-season for the 7th consecutive season. Regardless of the inexperience on the mound going into 2013, the expectations are high for head coach Nate Andrews.

“We need to find out which guys should fill out our line-up. There is some good young talent and some competition taking place,” Andrews said. “Like any year though, our goal is to be playing our best Baseball at the end of the season. The competition will play itself out by then I’m sure.”
