Head coach: Darin Hadley, first season
2017 record: 22-11 (9-1 3A Sunrise/first)
Returning lettermen (starters): Eleven (five)
Outlook: Hadley takes over a squad that last year won the program’s first league title in 17 seasons and made its first state appearance since 2012.
Eleven lettermen return from that team, and the Pirates are hoping to make another deep playoff run.
