RIGHT NOW I LIKE

Our experience and depth. We’ve returned almost everyone from last year’s team that had a successful season.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE

On game situations. We have good depth this year. Something we haven’t had for a few years. Now we need to work on getting comfortable playing together.

LEAGUE FAVORITE

I think there are going to be a several good teams in the league this year. It’s difficult right now to say who’s going to give us the best games. Several teams have the capabilities. I’m looking forward to getting started.
