Hendrick Hudson HS
Coach: Paul Natale (36th year)
2005 record: 9-14

Top veterans: Garrett Glashoff, Sr., SS/P; John Palmiotto, Sr., C; Kyle Peterson, Sr., CF/P; Tom Gilleo, Sr., P/OF; Derek Bernard, Sr., OF/C; Rich DePonto, Sr., 1B/3B; Ed Gauthier, Sr., P/OF; Mike McCaffrey, Sr., IF; Matt Troccoli, Jr., P/INF.

Key newcomers: None

Outlook: A large group of veteran players, including five-year starter Glashoff and four-year starter Palmiotto, are joined by seven juniors coming up from a junior varsity team that racked up a 15-3 record last season. The pitching rotation will go eight deep.

Lakeland HS
Coaches: Dennis Robinson (35th year) and Mike Robinson (30th year)
2005 record: 19-5

Top veterans: Chris Cunihan, Sr., CF/P; Max Guglielmo, Sr., P; Michael Rudman Sr., P/1B; Matt Stec, Sr., C; Dan Murray, Sr. P; Joe Gelbman, Sr., 2B; Jim Kelm, Jr., P; Josh Joy, So., P.

Key newcomers: Brendan Hourihan, So., P; John O'Connell, Jr., OF; Craig Cotone, So., C.

Outlook: Lakeland graduated seven starters, six of whom are now playing on college teams. The Hornets should not be in dire straits without them, though, with some capable upperclassmen leadership and a crop of promising younger players. "We don't want to rebuild," Dennis Robinson said. "We reload. Our seniors are there, so now it's the younger guys' turn."

Putnam Valley HS
Coach: Joe Natalie (2nd year)
2005 record: 6-13

Top veterans: Craig Cardwell, Sr., C; Josh Coppa, Jr., SS/P; Greg D'Annibale, Jr., P/OF/2B; Perry Geye, Sr., 3B/OF/P; Steve Kastuk, Jr., P/OF; Pete Noyer, Sr., OF; Pete Segreto, Sr., OF; Matt Treadwell, Sr., 2B.

Key newcomers: Larry Cobb, So., C/P/ 3B; Pat Considine, Sr., P/1B; Karl Lange, Jr., CF/P; Antonio Soto, So., 3B/P.

Outlook: Only one starter graduated, so the Tigers are hoping to improve with a deep, experienced pitching staff led by D'Annibale and Kastuk. Putnam Valley will need to play low-scoring games until its offense comes around.

Walter Panas HS
Coach: Anthony Fata (9th year)
2005 record: 5-15

Top veterans: Mike Anderson, Sr., P; Jesse Connor, Sr., OF/P; Dave Cole, Sr., OF/P; Matt Ross, Sr., OF/P; Carlos Vasquez, Sr., 1B.

Key newcomers: Ryan Elsasser, Jr., C; Dan Berte, Jr., 2B; Mark Hannor, Jr., 3B; Darian Brown, So., LF; Rob Parish, Jr., P/OF.

Outlook: The Panthers are looking to get back into sectionals after missing the postseason for the first time in eight years. A lot should ride on the arm of Anderson, a four-year starter who stands 6-foot-4, throws 95 mph and should be drafted after this season. Anderson will play at East Carolina. Ross is a solid starter who was 2-1 with a 2.80 ERA last year.
