This year’s team, helmed by head coach Dave Gaccetta and assistants Bill Crisco, Matt Gorr, Marc Schmeeckle, posted two tournament wins and finished fifth overall in the USSSA 12-year-old AAA state tournament. Players for the 2019 squad included Arlo Richards, Blake Gorr, Travis Check, Luke Schmeeckle, Soren Crisco, Nolan Gaccetta, Jack Schrock, Colin Cunningham, Parker Brown, Connor Falls, and Brec Birmingham.
The future of Niwot baseball is bright with players on a talented 11-year-old squad hitting their stride. Head coach David Gaccetta led the Niwot Youth Sports Cougars to a 27-4 record and an impressive showing in the 12-year-old state tournament.
For the past five years, Gaccetta has watched this team develop as ballplayers and as teammates. It all came into fruition this season.
