The birds might not be chirping yet and the snow hasn't melted completely, but the University of Mary baseball team has already started its fourth season.

The Marauders traveled to the Metrodome in Minneapolis for their season opener on March 5. With the leadership of 10 returning seniors, coach Steve Le Grand expects to have a good season.

One of the ten seniors is pitcher Roger Wuertz, Lake Henry. Wuertz graduated from Paynesville Area High School. He will also be a tri-captain for the Marauders this year.

Wuertz has been a two-year starting pitcher for the University of Mary. Last year he was named All Conference. He is majoring in physical education.

He is the son of Art and Leona Wuertz.
