Assembly Christian School
First Assembly Christian School has a lot to look forward to as in enters’ the 2015 season. The Crusaders return eight of nine starters from a very good 2014 team. The experience they gained last year as a young team should pay off this season. Even with a young roster last season the Crusaders made a lot of noise and boast three All-Region players.
The entire starting rotation is back for the Crusaders in 2015. Senior JD Wiles was the work horse last year and will be counted on to be the same this season. Garrett Trainum is another big gun that is back that will help solidify the pitching staff. Logan Penn, Blake and Bailey Wimberley round out the experienced staff for the Crusaders.
Defensively is where the Crusaders impress the most. Their outfield is full of talent and has two All-Region players in the corps. Logan Penn and Bobby Downing earned several accolades last season for their stellar play. This year should be no different for those two. The infield has an All-Region guy as well. SS Bailey Wimberley returns and will be joined in the middle by his younger brother Bailey to form a very good middle infield.
There will need to be much improvement offensively in 2015 for the Crusaders if they want to advance past the district and region this year. They do return all statistical leaders from last year’s team. Let’s see if the experience from last season and an off-season helps. But the bats of Logan Penn, bailey Wimberley and Bobby Downing should be able to pace the team until the others catch on.
