Strengths: Experience, athleticism, balanced scoring

Questions marks: Adapting to a new system and team continuity

Outlook: “We look forward to the opportunity of defending our Liberty Division Co-Championship. With several returning varsity contributors still playing fall sports a big test for us will be how quickly we can gel as a team with a new system and coaching staff in place. Our strength will be our balanced scoring as well as our ability to defend the perimeter and get out in transition. With several all-league returning players (Seaton Kukla, DJ Cerisier, and Colin O’Sullivan) and rising up and comers contributing we hope to be able to make a deep run in the District 1 5A playoffs.”
