Lafayette Jeff Bronchos
Coach:Scott McTagertt (70-48 in fifth season)
2011 results:18-13 (7-11 Hoosier Crossroads Conference); defeated Kokomo 10-2 in Lafayette Jeff Sectional championship; lost to Richmond 12-6 in Pendleton Heights Regional semifinal.
Top hitters:Peter Ripke, jr., SS (.300 average, 25 runs, 5 doubles, 6 home runs, 22 RBIs); Griff Clark, jr., SS (.250, 3 runs, 1 RBI); Keaton Hamilton, jr., OF/P (.222, 4 runs); Sam Russell, sr., INF); Ethan Smith, soph., INF; Reid Pittard, jr., C; Austin Albrecht, soph., OF (3 runs).
Top pitchers:Ripke (4-1, 2.72 ERA, 28 1/3 IP, 22 SO, 1 save); Clark; Russell; Eli Ledman, sr.; Smith.
Outlook:The Bronchos graduated 10 seniors from a team that won the program's first sectional title since 2004. McTagertt says this year's group is talented but young, and the starting lineup could include three sophomores. Ripke and Hamilton are the only players back from last season's regional game.
