Coach: Matt Erickson (fourth year)

Last year’s record: 18-0, won Class C state championship.

Returning letter winners: Seniors — Dan Curtis (FB), Jackson Erickson (MF), Alex Parker (F),  Kyle Hargraves (FB), Kurt Johnson (MF), Brian Mathieu (FB); Juniors — Cam Hainey (G),  Troy Haefele (MF), Austin Gervais (MF), David Dean (MF);  Sophomores — Will Desmarais (F), Dakota Keene (F), Bobby St. Hilaire (F).

Key losses:  Nick Brigham (G), Deryck Beliveau (FB), Josh Charest (MF), Trevar Haefele (MF), Garrett Darnell (MF), Shayne Curtis (FB), Cam Brown (MF), Jameson Peterson (FB).

Promising newcomers:  Senior — Josh Brown (G); Juniors  — Josu Asun (MF), Chris Finlay (FB); Sophomores  — Billy Soper (FB), Zack Johnson (MF); Freshman  —Chase Hainey (MF).

Outlook: The Saints lost key talent from last year’s state championship squad but have 13 players back, many of which started and were contributors to that title. Erickson was an all-state pick while Parker was a consistent threat up front. Hargraves and Mathieu solidify the defense while Johnson is a veteran in the midfield. St. Dom’s also added Asun, a Spanish transfer that fits nicely with the Saints style of play. St. Dom’s should be a contender for another MVC title and be a team to watch in Western C.
