Coach’s Comment: “We are a young team with many enthusiastic younger players. Many of them had varsity playing experience last season. Our biggest concern is also our strength: underclassmen. … We need to learn from early mistakes and get better week to week. Each team in our conference are all very good and they will present a formidable challenge week to week. … Ryan and Kirane will serve as co-captains this season.
