KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Kamiakin baseball team opens up the season Friday against Heritage High from Vancouver. After a fourth place finish in states last season, the team is hungry for a big season in 2012. 

the Braves fourth place finish was the highest since 1998. It is a new look team in 2012 though. Kamiakin only returns seven seniors, and only four of whom saw major playing time last season. Kamiakin remains confident it can build off of last year's success.

"We have a lot of confidence right now. We're really excited to go out and play and really see where we're at. They do a good job of competing, and this senior group is really running with this thing and taking charge and leading it," said Ryan Carter, third year head coach.

"Hopefully we can turn this thing into a dynasty and just win every year. So hopefully we get back there again and we can actually win that first game and get into the championship," said Drew Oord, Kamiakin third baseman.
