”We will return a very experienced, yet still pretty young team in 2024. They have had a chance to see what it takes to take the next step after making it to the Final 4 of Section 1AA in 2023 and coming up a little short. We will look to compete for a conference and section championship in 2024. There will be plenty of competition in what will be a very loaded Section 1AA in 2024!” - Dan Drazan, Head Coach
