Coach’s View

We’ll jump out and play two defending state champs in our first two games. We will learn a lot about ourselves early. The important thing is to grow and improve before getting into the meat of our region schedule. So far, in spring and summer workouts, the effort and attitudes of our players give me great optimism for this season.
