Season outlook: Despite their youth, the Saints were among the top teams in Class C a year ago. The strong sophomore class returns almost fully intact. The biggest question mark for the Saints this year will be in the cage, and with the team’s shift to the Western Maine Conference this season, that will be a pivotal role. The team’s record may not be as gaudy this season as it has in Pelletier’s first three at the helm, but the players will face stiffer competition and will be more battle-tested come playoff time.
