Salisbury has been a staple at the top of the Western New England Prep Baseball League over the last decade, but that won't make this year's championship run any less special for coach Kevin Huber.
Despite Salisbury's prolonged stretch of WNEPBL success, the Sarum clinched on Sunday just their first league tournament championship since 2018. It wasn't that Salisbury was dethroned in each of the previous three seasons; two WNEPBL tournaments were canceled due to COVID.
Nonetheless, Huber has Salisbury back on top of the league in his sixth year as head coach. In his mind, this one compares favorably to previous WNEPBL championships.
"We had a lot more depth than in years past," Huber said. "The depth across the league was pretty good due to the COVID situation. There was a lot more post-graduates, reclass students, and kids who changed venues."
