Overview: The Hornets have just two upperclassmen in Eells and Strout. There’s a solid group of sophomores back, but Leavitt will still be a young team. The Hornets hope to focus on the defensive side of the ball and spark the offense with some pressere defense and turnovers. Leavitt is still in the growing stages but could make progress this year.
