“I am extremely proud of the way this season progressed,” head coach Danny Savage saide. “The boys worked hard all season long and it paid off. I thought losing last year’s senior class would be tough to recover from, but every boy on the team stepped up and really surprised me. This is definitely a season I’ll remember forever.”
