Coach’s Comment: “We are very excited to have a little normalcy. Last season was difficult for everyone, so it is good to start practices on time. Division III will be very competitive again and we will have the target on our backs. Opening up with Stevens will be a real test for us moving forward. Our team leadership comes from the senior and junior classes. They have been working very hard in the off season and pre season. Depth is always an issue in the lower divisions, so it takes some luck with the injury bug for all the teams.”
