Outlook: It’s a new year for the Crusaders, as they welcome in a group of underclassmen to fill the shoes left by the graduation of six seniors.
“We have a relatively young team – bringing in an eighth grader, two freshmen and three sophomores,” said Pratt. “Though we’re young, we’re driven and hungry for the win. We are hoping to be a threat in the Colonial Council and make it past the quarterfinals this year at Sectionals.”
