Defensemen Bily Conners (Malvern Prep) and Henry Lobb (Malvern Prep) were key starters and brian Dailey (Conestoga) was the team’s top long pole. Tanner Scott (Conestoga) and Jamie Ikeda (Conestoga) also contributed as reserves during the year and senior goalie Dan Wigrizer (Haverford School) missed the second half of the year due to concussions, but played a major role as a mentor to sophomore goalie Kyle Turri.
