Head coach: Kih Gourrier, ninth season
2013 record: 10-6 (7-3 Southeast, second)
Returning lettermen: Five
Top athletes: Dylan Ihmels (Sr.), Tristan Hoyle (Sr.), Al Gourrier (Sr.), Matt Drongensen (Sr.)
Outlook: The Patriots had just seven players on their team last year, but came up just one win shy of the state tournament.
The bulk of the team returns, including singles state qualifier Ihmels.
“The team lost only one boy from its state play-in finish last year and should be a force to be reckoned with in its new conference,” Gourrier said.
