Keys to the season: We must play faster and alter our offense to fit our strengths.  A big key will be replacing the production lost by the graduation of Chase Husted by spreading it among our experienced returning core.

Things your team was doing during the COVID-19 pause of winter sports: Keys to returning to play after the shutdown will balancing practice time. We have to address conditioning, defensive fundamentals, offensive execution. I think all teams will be facing those same challenges with the limited number of practices prior to the first game.
