Strengths: “This group works hard and has put a lot of time in during the off season. Learning from the previous senior class in what the expectations are for this program will help steer them in the right direction.”

Question Marks:  “Consistency with our passing and the hunger to be the best. If we can accomplish everything we are working on in practice and bring that over to our games, we will be solid.”

Outlook: “We have a core group of talented upperclassmen that we will lean heavily on to steer us in the right direction this year. They have shown immense growth this offseason.  With a plethora of sophomores vying in the mix that should help us be competitive in the league. We are aiming to try and get back on top of the SOL National Conference, compete for the District One title and return to the PIAA state playoffs.”
