Panthers baseball boasts an experienced roster of returning all-league players in the 2013 season.

The Bonney Lake High baseball program opened the South Puget Sound League 3A season this week with plans for a run at the league, district and state titles.

The team features a strong cast of returning all-league players and solid pitching.

“We expect to compete with everyone we play this season,” coach Mike Olson said. “We’ve got a mature group of juniors that I’m really excited to watch this year, several of whom already have two years of varsity experience under their belt.”

Last year Bonney Lake finished third in league and 13-7 overall.

The Panthers blanked Highline in subdistricts 8-0 and advanced to the district tournament, losing to Columbia River 11-2.

“It will be tough to replace our senior group from last year, but we have a few new players who are excited to be here and itching to contribute,” Olson said. “It should be fun.”

Returning to the squad are shortstop Michael Gretler, a first team all-league selection. Olson expects him to be an MVP candidate this season.

Chris Brown will be on the mound and playing outfield. He was second team all-league last season.

Also on the mound and in the outfield is Taiki Green, all-league honorable mention.

Kash Koltermann and Cory Burrill, both juniors, will be on the mound for the Panthers. Koltermann also plays first and Burrill third.

Nolan Weber is a returning junior playing second and junior Ryan Noborikawa will anchor the outfield.
