HS team’s outlook for the upcoming season?” We have a very positive outlook on this season at Calvert Hall. Although, we lost a very talented senior class, we still believe we can be a powerful force this year in the MIAA. A crucial part of this season is that we are going to need a lot of young guys to step up this year.
