11. CALVARY CHRISTIAN
Location: Clearwater, Fla.
2018 record: 30-1
Final 2018 Super 25 rank: No. 22
After winning 60 games in a row, Calvalry Christian was taken down in the championship game last season. They’re off to start a new winning streak in 2019.
TCU commit Nolan Hudi, the No. 53 LHP in the country, enters his senior year. There’s not much way he can get better than last after posting a 0.44 ERA with 13 wins in 14 starts. And he’s just one piece of the dominant rotation that combined for a 1.05 ERA. Only one pitcher, Jonny Bunner, graduated; the team will still throw out Hudi, Josh Emerson, Braden Halladay and Cameron Barrier.
The team did lose a lot of hitting depth, including two seniors that hit above .425 and a third that hit .391. But if returners like Christian Cairo (LSU commit, No. 97 overall) can continue producing and sophomore Tommy White (North Carolina State commit, No. 216 overall) grows in his second year, the sky is the limit for Cavalry Christian.
