Final Comments:
This team is determined to do great things this year coming off of our historic 2022 season which ended as Div. 3 State Runner Ups. We have 9 returning players from last season and many of which have contributed largely to our team success and we plan for them to continue to do so! We have a lot of potential power in our lineup and if all flows well each and every game we should be able to continue to compete with the best out there! We are looking forward to the season and are working hard to reach our goals which are a PAC7 championship and a nice run in the tournament!
