The team just keeps getting better every week and I am excited about the next couple of weeks to see how much we can improve. A lot of the teams we are playing are sophomore heavy – and we are all freshmen except for one guy.”
Bosh said, “We have a great recruiting class coming in next year. We will have a good shot at regionals if we can put it all together on the same day! I am very proud of the progress the team has made this spring and I look forward to the future of this program.
