Coach’s Outlook for 2017: “The strength of the 2017 team will be founded in its defense, but many key returners will hope to place the team among the top of the new SOL National league and acquiring a AAA playoff spot. A large key to that success will be developing some of young talent to fill key varsity roles.”
