The Jaguars are looking to repeat as champions this year.

The checklist looks good: star shortstop? Check. Kamren James is the No. 1 at his position in the state after a .389 campaign with 43 RBI and seven home runs. He can also take the mound, going 3-1 with a 1.80 ERA. … Returning stud sophomore? Check. Blaze Jordan was named the MaxPreps freshman of the Year after hitting .426 with seven home runs and 37 RBI. … Incomers? Check. Chase Honeycutt is the No. 2 catcher in the state, per Perfect Game, and Mac Sims is a top-1000 player.

The team might need to find some pitching depth after losing Matthew Taylor, but it hasn’t been an issue through six games this season. If there’s a breakout player on the mound (maybe James? 11 IP, 2 wins, 0.64 ERA to start the season?) they’ll have a good shot at taking it all again.
