Coach’s Comment: “This will be an interesting year for Division II South,” Babaian said. “Many teams will be in the mix and it will be very competitive. We are returning many young kids from last year and we hope to build upon a strong surge at the end of last season. At the end of the day, we are hoping to keep kids healthy.

“I feel the coaches in our division are excellent, so every team will be well prepared. I’m looking forward to the challenges of a new season.”
