Season outlook:
Jon Egan enters his third year leading the Hawks and brings with him an impressive recruiting class to add to the very tough core of returners. The team will be led by returning National Qualifiers Collin Crowell and Shane Parcel. Frankie Colom, David Welch, and Danny Ressler look to improve on their outstanding freshmen campaigns. Crowell and Parcel look to hit the 100 win club as they have 87 and 96, respectively. The incoming group includes three New England placewinners as well as placewinners from some other tough states, giving the team some depth but also filling a few lineup holes.
