Coach’s Outlook: “We will have a nice combination of youth and experience, and plenty of athleticism. But, graduating players like Nico Iacovino (Villanova) and Nick Ericson (NJIT) leave notable gaps to fill. We will put in the effort to recover from those losses, generate new team chemistry, and compete. Our goals are to win the Chesmont League, fight for a place-finish in the District 1 tournament, and compete in the PIAA 3A State Tournament.”
