Season Outlook:
The Cardinals return a strong nucleus from a team that won a second consecutive CCIW Conference Championship and finished 10-2 in dual meets in 2019. A very talented group of newcomers looks to supplement that core of returners to make for a team that will be solid from top to bottom.
