RIGHT NOW I LIKE …

Their willingness to learn. The seniors have had three different coaches during their careers and each new coach with a different philosophy. It has to be tough but I’m counting on them as leaders.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE …

Every phase of the game, a step at a time

OTHER THAN OUR TEAM, WHO WILL BE THE TEAM TO BEAT IN YOUR LEAGUE AND WHY

Wilmington, no question. They may be better this year than they were last year and last year’s team beat the state champions who beat the No. 1 team in the country
