This year’s Varsity team rosters three seniors, seven juniors and three sophomores, while JV will carry eight sophomores, eight freshmen and one junior.
“The focus this year will be to pick each other up, stay positive and work together” said the coaches. Both teams are off to a terrific start as they took the win over Garden City, and JV made an exciting 2 game behind comeback to seal the victory over Plainedge.
