Final Comments:
We are a very deep, talented team. We have every starter back from last year's regional team plus several new sophomore and freshman additions that will make great contributions for us. Our varsity roster has 20 players, many of whom will get into each game in some capacity. If we can stay healthy, we can be a tough matchup for many teams in the loaded Northeast Division I region.
