2020 OUTLOOK:
We return 4 players with significant varsity playing experience. Unfortunately, senior Cam Miller will not be playing this summer as he will be reporting to North Dakota State for football. Losing Cam creates a significant hole, but also opportunity for our other players to step up. We expect to have a large roster of over 30 players...we'll spend the first two weeks of the shortened practice season figuring out who will emerge as contributors. The good news is there's lots of talent and athleticism in that group. We expect to compete for a trip to the State Tournament again in 2020.” Head Coach Keith McSweeney
