Champlin Park has had a strong baseball program over the years, and last season they went all the way to Target Field for the state title game before losing to Wayzata.
The Rebels have to fill a lot of lineup spots from that team, as they graduated a strong group from last season.
Two key starters do return: shortstop/pitcher Cole Albers will be one of the best players in the Northwest Suburban Conference, and outfielder Zach Loven is coming off a strong season as well.
Champlin Park has a good group of juniors and a couple of sophomores who will be counted on to step in.
