Keys to the season: With 7 returning letterwinners all who have some starting experience from last year due to various illnesses and injuries during the season, the key this year will be how quickly this group learns to play with each other and for each to expand their roles in the short period of time after the layoff.

Things your team was doing during the COVID-19 pause of winter sports: Our athletic trainer provided some home workouts to keep guys active during the layoff and have a couple google meetings to keep on the same page for when we get to resume activities on the floor.
