It’s the same team with the same uniforms, but the season is brand new.
Kiel returns to spring WIAA baseball for the first time since 1964 (WIAA summer baseball began in 1965). Veteran head coach Brad Mey has similar numbers to what he had with the summer program as the Raiders look forward to some familiar opponents, as well as some brand new ones.
Here is the Kiel baseball preview:

Head Coach: Brad Mey
2018 finish: The Raiders were 15-8 overall and 14-7 in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference (2nd place). They lost the regional final to Howards Grove.

2018 Review:
Plymouth won the final EWC summer title, one game ahead of Kiel. Pitcher Austin Conrad was First Team All-EWC with Second Team selections including pitcher Lucas Schema, catcher Trenton Rabe and infielders Michael Endries and Trace Woepse. Schema and Woepse were seniors, the only two on the entire roster. Kiel had no long winning or losing streaks with a 3-game winning streak their longest. After a regional opening win over Kohler/Sheboygan Christian, Kiel lost at Howards Grove in the WIAA regional final to conclude their final summer season after qualifying for state in 2017.

2019 Preview:
Kiel is experienced all over the diamond beginning with the pitching where Conrad returns as the ace of the staff. Other veteran hurlers include Harrison Skrepenski, Nathan Goehring and Keenan Manz with Rabe also able to give some innings when he’s ot behind the plate. Noah Watson is a top newcomer to the staff. Goehring is back at first base with Endries, Connor Voelker and Aaron Winkel also back on the infield. Adding additional depth will be Logan Moiffer, Zach Welnetz and Travis Kohlmann. The outfield has experience in Alex Vogel, Nathan Schmitz and Josh Nisleit returning.
It is now a back to a true Eastern Wisconsin Conference in baseball. 2018 champ Plymouth is gone to the East Central Conference, but remains as a non-conference opponent. Holdovers Kiel, New Holstein and Sheboygan Falls each figure to be contenders. Chilton has a veteran lineup back and will also be a factor.
