"The 2023 version of the Pipestone Arrows will be very talented, but also very young and inexperienced. There is a chance that seven different Sophomores see the field at some point in the season. Many of them in significant roles. The team that takes the field at the end of May will be dramatically different than the one that takes the field in April due to experience gained over 20 games."
Ryan Koopman, Pipestone Area Head Coach
