Post 15 has had a different look this summer. Logan Midthun is the new head coach and several new faces are in the field, but the expectations remain the same.

Logan Midthun - 1st Year Casselton Coach: “I welcome that pressure, that's all healthy for me. I'm glad the team responds to it very well. They know they're expected to win and they haven't overlooked anything and they've done their job.”

Jon Lubbers - Casselton Pitcher – Infielder: “People expect us to be good in baseball, so we put our extra efforts in. We do hitting, take infield hard, just little things like that.”

Ellery Bresnahan - Casselton Outfielder: “We're known to turn it on during tournament time and we did that again this year. We kind of had a slow start to the beginning of the year, but now we turned it on again for tournaments.”
