Father Ryan will be looking to bounce back thi year after a 7th place finish in the region a year ago.  The Irish don’t have any seniors on the roster but will be well coached as always and make opponents earn everything against them.  They will be able to shoot the ball from the outside very well and don’t be surprised if this team becomes a tough out as they gain more experience.

Coach Bontrager says it will be a great season if: 

“Our players work to their potential and improve in all areas of their game. If the players learn to respect the sport and all those involved while also competing in the very tough Division II.”

Coach Bontrager says it will be a tough season if: 

“Our inexperienced players have a hard time rising to the level of our Division II schedule. Also, if the players do not learn the true reasons to play and that is leadership, accountability, working hard and teamwork.”
