- Mynderse ended their league season fifth in Finger Lakes Division II with a 4-6 record (4-12 mynderseoverall). Seeded seventh in the Class C tournament the Blue Devils lost to Livonia in first round and finished as seeded.
The Blue Devils only lost four players to graduation last season, however, each of the four were named to the All County team (two to 1st team and two to HM).

Offensively, Mynderse is in a good placed. Coach Joe Caraher says "We have a lot of returners with significant playing time on the offensive side of the ball." The midfield will be led by junior Matt Koopman. Koopman was third in scoring last season with 20g-10a. In the attack, the Blue Devils will look to A.J. Bachman. Bachman, a senior, was second in points last season with 20g-13a. Bachman will be joined by three other returning seasons who all saw significant playing time last season, according to Caraher.

Defensively, the Blue Devils are young. Jesse Janas, a junior, returns as a leader after being named to the 1st team All County. Janas will also see help from senior Josh Sahler who moved from the midfield to add some experience to the line. As well, Mynderse looks to eighth grader Tim Trickler for some defensive help. Coach Caraher says of Trickler," [he] is up on varsity and looks to have an impact at the defensive end of the field."

Coach Caraher is looking forward to league play noting, "We look to have a balanced offensive and a defense that gets better each week. We look to be competitive in every game in division II." Mynderse has scheduled out of league games against Bath, Waterloo, Penn Yan, Geneva, Canandaigua and Newark.
