What to expect: The Patriots’ boys team has a nice mix of veterans and newcomers, and if everything breaks its way, coaches believe the team can sneak into the state meet. The Patriots have an eye on peaking at the right time, on the hilly Twinbrook course. The girls’ team’s top returners, Alison MacDonald and Abbey Chandler, will try to lead the Patriots to the state meet. The squad has added four freshman capable of making an immediate impact.
