A disappointing season came to an end with a 1-0 loss to Lakeville North in the losers’ bracket of the section tournament.

“That loss summed up our season,” said Hanson, who saw his average drop to .318 with one home run and 11 RBI. “We didn’t come to play.”

2013: Redemption

The three-year starter and captain plans on providing plenty of leadership for this year’s young squad.

“We have the talent to compete,” Hanson said. “We have a lot of unknowns, but we’re going to be a good club.”

A lot will depend on the arm of the 6-2, 210-pound Hanson, who consistently throws 88 to 89 mph. Scholl has primarily used him as a closer up to this point, but will count on the veteran as his No. 1 starter in 2013.

“We have something to prove this year,” Hanson said. “We have to redeem what we should have done last year.”
