Outlook: Senior utility player Conor Reynolds (.440, 6 triples, 31 runs, 16 stolen bases), an All-Metro second-team pick last year, leads the Dons at the plate, while senior left-hander Bruce Zimmerman (7-0 with a 3.10 ERA) anchors their rotation.

Outlook: In his first season, Milton said "expectations are pretty high" with 16 seniors on the team. Senior left-hander Ryan Callahan leads a deep pitching staff. Most coaches name the Falcons as one of the favorites for the Anne Arundel County title.
