Nobles has an outstanding middle school athletic program and it doesn’t stop at baseball. The MS coaching staff works hard to build practices and schedules that challenge student-athletes of all skill levels. Our middle school coaching staff (Don Allard, Andy Shumway and Thomas Forteith) is by far one of the most experienced baseball staffs in the area. It is comprised of faculty and staff who have spent years instructing and competing at various levels of their sport. In the end, middle schoolers have an experience that ties them more closely to their classmates, while simultaneously pushing them to fulfill their potential as both athletes and leaders.
