Season Recap | 2019:
The 2019 season continued the building of a solid future. This year's group started out very strong jumping off to a 3-1 start. Injuries became an issue as the team struggled in midseason losing some very close contests. Finishing the season with a 3-2-2 record over the last 7 games, including a tremendous 3-2 win over 2018 NEPSAC Champion Middlesex on their parents weekend.
Senior captains Gavin Schwandt and Bradford Campbell will be missed as well as seniors Mason Hennessey, Cheyne Daniels, and Danny El Abboud. The future continues to look bright with a majority of the starters and team returning for the 2020 season.
