Resurrecting the baseball program at Orcas High School has been the focus of third-year head coach Jim Passer.

The young Vikings have had respectable records every year under Passer, placing mid-pack in a talented league. But this season looks even better.

“This year we look good on paper,” Passer said. “I feel good about the season. A core group of players worked hard in the off-season. We have 16 guys, but we are still young with only one senior. Last year we had no seniors and three eighth graders, so the entire team is returning.”

Looking at the league, Friday Harbor remains a powerhouse.

“Other teams in the league have lost a lot of players and there is no reason we cannot be at the top of the mix,” Passer said.

The Vikings start their season with a double header March 20 at Shoreline Christian.
