A look ahead

Southern Regional is ever retooling and will be no different next season.

The Rams return state qualifiers Nicholas O’Connell, Sebastian Delligatti and John Stout in hopes to win a 12th sectional title since 2005.

St. Augustine Prep will also be in good shape despite graduating a few seniors who were key to this season in hopes to get back to the top of S.J. Non-Public A.

As for individuals, Lacey Township’s Hunter Gutierrez is primed for a big senior season as well as O’Connell. Watch out for rising sophomores Mike Misita from St. Augustine and Buena Regional’s Cael Aretz and Hunter Suter, all state qualifiers this season.
