Our staff and kids are very excited to get a full season in.  We have a great deal of experience back for the 2021 season, and kids have been working hard all off season. We play in a great conference and that, coupled with a rigorous non conference schedule will challenge the kids right out of the gate.” Head Coach Mark Gallagher
