Season outlook: The Cougars are going to be a young team this year, but the lacrosse skill and IQ is the best third year coach, Kevin Averill has seen since he’s been the coach. They will look to replace a two time All Conference Goalie and an entire defensive wall. They will be relying heavily on the offensive midfielders and attack lines to be efficient and effective until their defense gets used to the varsity game speed and their communication down with each other.
