Season outlook: The Falcons produced one of its best seasons in years last fall and have 20 players back from that squad. Mountain Valley moves back to Western B and graduated talent and experience, including Klein, an all-state forward. The Falcons still have an athletic group of upperclassmen that make this team a formidable one in the MVC.
