The team might still play a makeup match against Trinity, but that has not been determined yet.

“We persevered through a very tough season due to the weather,” coach Lynn Miller said. “We improved each match and were competitive at the end of the year. The guys never complained about gym practices or cold and windy conditions. They just went out and played as hard as they could. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of guys to work with.”
