POTENTIAL EXPECTATIONS:
The Vikings had several young players take over headlines as they made a run to within a play of being in the State Championship Series.  While the youth in the program has talent, the senior leadership from 2019 could be missed.  New roles in 2020 can shake expectations, but there is enough talent to make another run in 2020.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
How quickly will new players step into leadership roles and how quickly will players take to their new roles on the field and in the lineup.  Again, there is talent, but the depth the 2019 class provided should not be overlooked.  As Coach Mills gets this club moving forward, they will have a chance to make big strides throughout the year.

QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
“We had some very talented juniors that have waited their turn last year behind a strong senior class. Adding some very talented underclassmen, Conley should get stronger as the season progresses.”
