Coach’s Outlook for 2022: “The Quakers look to take another step forward this season, with a young but talented offense led by shifty Junior Attackman Jackson Redd, midfielders Cole Morris, Kevin Dolan, and A.P. Rossi. The defense looks to improve in front of its young goalie, (So. XIngyu Wang), with junior LSM Jake Bryson helping to anchor a young, but athletic group of defenders.
“The Quakers face a tough conference schedule, but are optimistic that these challenges will prepare them to advance further in the state playoffs in 2022.”
