Offensively, the Rangers will look to Kyle Mark. Mark returns as the leading assister from last year with 21g-15a. Additionally, junior Nick Fischer returns with 21g-8a. Mark moves from the midfield to the attack this season to join Fischer. At the midfield, Spencerport will look to senior Sean DeMers (4g-6a).

Defensively, the Rangers are much stronger. At LSM, Spencerport is returning two 2nd team All County selections in senior Paul Wojcik and sophomore Andrew Sformo. Wojcik and Sformo will help solidify the close defense as well. Zack Yaeger will also be a key player in the close defense. In the cage the Rangers graduated last year's starter Mike Palvino and will look to backup Tyler Lariviere this season. Lariviere played 49 minutes last season with 12s (54%).

Overall, with the new league orientation, Spencerport will hope to capture the Division III Title. Out of league games against Churchville-Chili, Victor, Gates Chili and Eastridge will be key games for the Rangers this season.
