Season outlook: Buck jumps to the boys’ program after a lengthy stint with the girls’ as a head coach and as an assistant. The Cougars have a number of players back and, because of injuries and low numbers in recent classes, much of the roster has varsity experience. Dirigo hopes that seasoning pays off as the Cougars try to challenge for a tourney berth.
