The 2015-16 season is upon us. With three returning starters and two other players who played a lot of minutes this season promises to be an exciting one. There are three players moving up from our JV Team as well as several Freshman fighting for a spot on the Varsity Roster.
The returners are led by Captain Christina Hilton. She is a Sophomore Forward who was the Northern League Player of the Year, An All City Division II Player as well as a Second Team All City Super Team Member.
