Overview: The Saints earned the No. 1 seed in Western C last year before losing in the first round. St. Dom’s has just two starters back from that team. The Saints lost Pomerleau, the MVC Player of the Year, as well as Greco and Dwinell, two other seasoned starters. That leaves just Grady and Chloe Dwinell back as starters. Mayo and Pietkiewicz return but missed most of last year to injury. The Saints will be young with 10 out of 13 players being underclassmen.
