Last year’s record: 10-11 (Lost in Division 2 North first round)
Head coach: T.J. Baril (First season at Masco, 90-54 at Swampscott)
Captains: Speros Varinos, Sr., SS/P; Tommy Budrewicz, Jr., OF/P; Greg Jain, Sr., P.
Key Returnees: Josh Griffith, Sr., IF; Dylan Amore, Sr., C; Joe Klingensmith, Jr., IF; Mike Manni, So., C; Zach Duval, So., C; Edison Thayer, Sr., 1B/OF.
Strengths: Defense and work ethic. Varinos is excellent at shortstop and the Chieftains have speed in the outfield. They’d also embraced the new coaching staff and have attacking practices with in-game mentality.
Concerns: Experience. Masconomet has five seniors, three of them returning starters, but graduated their 3-4 hitters and their No. 1 starter on the mound.
Coach’s Outlook: “The kids are getting a good understanding of how aggressive we want to be and they’re excited about that. They’ve been really attentive and they’re ready to go. As a staff, we feel fortunate to be here and we want to continue the success Masco has had.”
Last year’s record: 17-4 (lost to Andover in Division 1 first round)
Head coach: Mike Gibeley (2nd season)

Concerns: Tougher schedule.
Coach’s Outlook: “We have a very good group of committed, talented young athletes who are focused on working hard.”
