Season outlook: After missing the playoffs last year, the Raiders hope for a return under the guidance of Stowell, a former player and assistant coach in several sports at Oak Hill. He has a good mix of experienced and new talent to make a playoff push. Mulherin and Clifford were all-MVC honorable mention last year. Stowell believes they have enough talent around them to compete but have to maintain some consistency.
