Mount Si High School baseball team, 3A state champion in 2011, is getting some national attention on preseason rankings.
USA Today released its 2012 Super 25 baseball regional prep rankings March 7, and listed Mount Si as number seven in the West division, the only Washington team that made the list.
Here is a link to USA Today’s regional rankings: http://www.highschoolsports.net/sports/preps/baseball/poll/story/2011-09-06/2012-regional-rankings/53401084/1
ESPN, which ranked the Wildcats as the number one team in Washington, had this to say, “There may not be another team in Washington that can trot out a trio of aces like Mount Si can this spring.
“ESPNHS All-State hurlers Reece Karalus, Trevor Taylor and Trevor Lane are back to try and capture back-to-back Class 3A titles for the Wildcats.
“Mount Si went 22-3 last season and defeated a loaded Sherwood squad in the finals.”
