Q&A with Coach Bolluyt
1. What are the main differences between this year's team and last year's team?
"We will have 20 seniors on this year's team compared to seven last year, so we will have more of a veteran team."
2. Where do your strengths lie this year?
"We have a team that returns a lot of starters, so we will have an experienced team with great leadership among the upper classes. The players have had a great offseason. They have been working hard, and are stronger and faster then a year ago."
3. Where do you see the team needing to improve?
"A key to our team success this year will be that we continue to improve from practice to practice and remain humble and hungry."
