OUTLOOK: The goal for this team is to get back to where they left off last year, after exiting in the state semifinals to the team that wound up winning the state championship. Not too bad for head coach Keith Sargent’s first year. But look out, this team is said to be even stronger. “We had seven shutouts last year, and I am anticipating about the same this year.” Everything looks to be lining up for another impressive run deep into the postseason.
