With eight starters returning, the Silver Foxes are looking for an improved showing in 2013.

Dutch Fork welcomes eight regulars back to the fold for the 2013 baseball season.

The list of veterans includes junior middle infielder Derek Olenchuk, senior pitcher-outfielder Mark Kingsmore, senior outfielder-pitcher Ethan Hinkle, senior pitcher Conner Davis, senior catcher Tyler Lancaster, senior third baseman Nic Pappas, sophomore outfielder-pitcher Lane Ecton and junior outfielder-pitcher Erik Horton.

Senior middle infielder Will Thomas and sophomore pitcher Tate Fant are newcomers to watch, according to coach Jonathon Johnson.

The Silver Foxes opened Region 5-3A play with a 4-2, eight-inning loss to South Aiken. The next conference game is Friday at home against Aiken. In between, the busy first week schedule includes non-regions home games against archrival Irmo (Wednesday) and Spring Valley (Thursday).
