Season outlook: Not only did the Falcons lose 14 players and all but two starters from last year’s team, but Mountain Valley also moves back up to Western B, where the tournament field will be much tougher. The Falcons may not score as much as last year and will rely on a solid defense. It will take time for Mountain Valley as players adjust to playing at a new level.
