Q: Tell us about the season.  

A: We (started the week) 8-4-1. We have had a solid season this year after replacing two four-year players in Jacob Jensen and Daniel Jaubert, who graduated last year. We returned three of our top five players — Mikey Landry, who finished second in state last year; Will Torres,  who has been playing really well after recovering from ACL surgery from a football injury; and Jeffrey Cupit, our only senior, who has been our most consistent player.

We are at the point now where we are looking forward to the postseason. We know that we will have tough challenges in our division, which is one of best in state.
