Nanticoke Area
Head coach: Dean Myers

Last year's record: 2-14. Lost to Tunkhannock in the first round of the district playoffs.

Players to watch: Eric Hauer (.404 two extra base hits), Joe Yudichak (.333, 11 RBIs), Anthony Ioanna (1-1, 4.54 ERA).

2011 outlook: Myers enters his first season with plenty of work ahead of him. In Ioanna, Tom Vitale, Alex Passetti, Jeff Jezewski and Hauer, the Trojans return five players who saw time on the mound last year. Just one win returns from a staff that posted a 8.23 ERA and walked 78 and fanned 54. Offensively, Hauer is the top returning hitter, followed by Yudichak. After that, Passetti is the only returning player who hit above .200.
