League: Class 4A Southeast
Head coach: Charity Cress, second season
2016 record: 4-13-1 (2-8 Southeast, fifth)
Returning letter winners (starters): Thirteen (seven)
Top athletes: MF/D Makenna Ciska (Jr.)
Outlook: The Patriots struggled at times last year as a young team learned on the job.
Thirteen letter winners return and should be in better stead to compete.
“It’s still a rebuilding year after taking over the program last year,” Cress said. “We look to compete in a tough division, and our goal is to make the playoffs this year.
“We have a lot of young talent mixed with some older, experienced girls. It should be a fun year to watch these girls compete.”
