Even though they did not win the conference title, the Tartans had a great season. Coach Dintaman had no complaints about his talented athletes, when speaking about his team last season. He spoke with high praise of his team, he claims last season was “one of the best seasons we ever had.”
“I was able to coach very talented players, but one struggle was injuries from our top pitchers who weren’t able to perform,” Dintaman said. “This team made it very exciting for me to coach.”
Dintaman said the team was a great group even though they didn’t achieve as much as he had hoped, but it was still a suscessful season.
