Outlook for the season: The Sabres return 11 players from last year’s team, which will come in handy as they face a tough schedule that includes more Class A and AA teams than teams within their own classification (B).
“With Mohonasen added to our division [of the Colonial Council], we play the last two teams to win the A title [Mohonasen and Lansingburgh] four times, plus LaSalle and Ichabod [Crane] twice,” said Loiacono. “The goal is to continue to get better every day, get a high seed and get back to Glens Falls.”
