Cool hand Cal Expect big things from junior Cal Reese, who qui- etly filed a stellar cam- paign in 2017. Over 14 games, the shortstop batted .355 with 11 base hits in 31 at-bats. He also drove in eight runs, a number which fig- ures to improve after another long winter in the cage. No. 8 is also handy in the hole, committing just two errors in 28 chances last spring. Where for art thou… arms stockade? Tasked with improving a staff that gave up 4.48 runs per contest last sea- son, Conquerors skipper Justin Smith will likely turn to Reese, Cooper Voeller and Daniel Thomp- son, who combined for 21 appearances, 48 strikeouts and an ERA of 4.84 last season. Scheduling as an art form Faith Christian opens the season by playing six of its first eight games at home, allowing it time enough to develop a fluid rotation and construct a solid founda- tion for conference play. And April is simply no joke, what with the likes of Bethel Christian Academy, Greenville Christian, Wilson Christian and Wilmington Christian Academy appearing on the schedule over a two-week span beginning April 10. Here's thinking these Conquerors, a year older, stronger and wiser, will post their share of wins this spring for skipper Justin Smith.
