"They are taking on brand new roles this season," Witges said. "They are smart kids, great leaders, and I'm looking forward to see how they will contribute in new positions."
Effingham begins its season against Mattoon today in the Charleston Red & Gold Tournament. The tournament should give the team an idea of how the transitions are panning out
"We have some tough competition in a three-day span," Witges said. "Mattoon, Charleston, and Teutopolis are who we face early. We will learn a lot about ourselves this week. If we have a good showing in the tournament, I don't see why 13 wins can't be a goal."
