Outlook: The Spartans won 20 matches last year, but were in arguably the toughest league in the state.
With four starters back, they’re hoping to qualify for the postseason.
“Our goals include ensuring that students work hard and play hard in the classroom and on the court,” Khuon said. “We are looking to make playoffs for the first time since 2009 by focusing on becoming scrappy defensively and running a quick-tempo offense.”
