RIGHT NOW I LIKE …
The amount of experience and depth on the team. We return 9 full-time starters from 2015 and have 10 seniors on the roster, all who have logged significant varsity playing time throughout their careers.
RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE …
Finishing in the final third (of the field).
CNE. Any team that is undefeated in league play for two years must be considered the favorite.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM …
This group of seniors led by captains Gundler, Hamm, Caplinger and Miller are great students and athletes and it has been a privilege to witness their improvement throughout their career.
