Head Coach Adam Geier was proud of the players' accomplishments. "Each year they have been the student athletes that have worked hard in the off-season, took the leadership roles and pushed themselves to have better grades. After their junior season, winning more games than the program has ever won, they helped the team make it to the second round of sectionals. These two boys are great positive role models that will be successful in any aspect of their lives."
