Casey Adcox has coached baseball since he finished playing at Central Washington University in 1998. He’s led the Sumner Spartans for seven years and served as head coach consecutively since 2010.

The Spartan’s record was 18-8 last season and lost one starter. The team returns with a lot of experience but final assignments haven’t yet been made, Adcox said at the time of press.

Key players to watch this year will include: Christian Parsons, who set a school record in 2013 with 118 strikeouts in 71 innings and earned first team all area player; Tysen Fischlin, who batted .449 and earned first team South Puget Sound League honors his junior year; and Chase Torgison, who batted .394 and earned first team all league honors.

Spring hasn’t officially begun, but five of the team’s seniors have already signed letters of intent to play in the NWAACC next year and received scholarships to do so.

Luc Powers-Hubbard, third baseman, signed at Columbia Basin Community College; Logan Christensen, left-handed pitcher, signed at Bellevue Community College; Brandon Walsh, shortstop, will play at Big Bend Community College; Fischlin, center fielder, signed at Columbia Basin Community College and Parsons, right-handed pitcher, signed at Lower Columbia Community College.

Bryan Adkins received an academic scholarship and was invited to turn out for Central Washington University’s team as a walk on, despite not signing a letter of intent, according to Coach Parsons.

“These six seniors have brought a lot of success to Sumner baseball. As a coach, it’s very gratifying to see young men in your program, all with plans in place to continue playing in great programs after they leave. All of these schools have very rich traditions and reputations as top junior colleges in the region, so I really couldn’t be happier about it,” Adcox said.

The boys will play Bethel High School at 4 p.m., March 19 at Bethel.
