Bend Elks Are Proud to Welcome Back 12 Champions

November 11th, 2015

The Bend Elks are welcoming 12 players back for the 2016 season in a chase for another WCL title.

It is rare for any WCL team to have multiple returning players year after year, but, the success and support of the hometown have drawn 12 players back to Bend for another season. Bend Elks General Manager and new Head Coach Casey Powell had this to say on the subject;

“With about a dozen returning players off last years championship team, it’s exciting to know that we will have a good core nucleus of players.  A lot of those guys will be expected to be leaders in our clubhouse and lead by example and show what is expected of the players on and off the field.”

As the season draws nearer, we are excited for the return of our beloved players and the return of Bend Elks Baseball!

Those returning include:

  • Louis Wolf                         Oregon Institute Of Technology
  • Tommy Lane                     Marshall University
  • Jarod Gonzales                 Gonzaga
  • Derek Chapman               Washington State University
  • Patt Flynn                          Utah
  • Sam Boone                        Shoreline Community College
  • Jake Forrester                  Central Washington
  • Mack Gaul                         Central Washington
  • Kris Jackson                     Chemeketa Community College
  • Riley Newman                  Linfield

The full 2016 roster will be released shortly.
