Final Comments:
We will be looking to build off of last year's squad that graduated 4 seniors including SCAL Player of Year McKane Finkenbine. We will be counting on several players to step up and give us more balance in scoring. We will still look for an up-tempo style of play and strive to move the ball more efficiently while creating more opportunities for scoring. Communication, defense and rebounding will be the 3 major keys to this group as we will not be the biggest team in the area. We have young men right now who are working hard towards those keys.
