"We bring back a strong nucleus from last year's team that finished 15-17. We have a group of seniors that have a lot of varsity experience & we will look to lean on them a lot this year. This group has a chance to accomplish some great things if we can buy into our roles & come together as a team." - Ian DeLaet, Head Coach
