League: Class 4A Northwest
Head coach: Nick Meis, sixth season
Returning lettermen: Eight
Top athletes: Evelio Vergara (Jr.), Sawyer Epstein (Sr.), Josh Campbell (Jr.)
Outlook: Vergara was a second-team all-state selection last year and is one of eight returning lettermen for the Panthers.
“The loss of two-time Sunset Region champion Daniel Ziems (to graduation) will be difficult to overcome, but with smart and dedicated training, anything is possible,” Meis said.
