Coach’s Outlook: Last year we had a very young team which included 5 freshman players and only a few players with varsity experience. After a rough start to our schedule we were able to finish the season strong with solid wins over our division rivals. I expect with the strong finish and the experience we gained throughout last year, that we will be much more competitive from the beginning of the season to the end.
