Head Coach Todd Cantrill, who just finished his 22nd season as the leader of the program, was proud of his team as it improved throughout the season.

He commented that the season was almost more like two seasons. The year began with very little varsity experience and Isaac Green who broke his leg early on. He said by the end of the year, the improvement was evident.
