Final Comments:
Losing 2 starters from last season in Joe and Nate. They were great leaders and set the example of what that should look like. We bring back 7 starters from last years team who made a run to the district championship to fall 2 runs short of Newark Catholic. Looking to compete at a higher level this season and building on our post season run from last year.
