The Bears lost four starters, including their top two scorers, from a team that went 17-7 and reached the sub-district finals last season, but this year’s team has a chance to surprise some people with three returning letter-winners and one starter coming back.

“We graduated four seniors, so we will be a young team; however, these boys pass the ball and shoot well,” he said. “If we can get them to play hardnosed defense, we will be able to compete.”
