Overall Thoughts on Season:

Over the past two seasons this group has shown tremendous resolve.  When our team was healthy and all present for tournaments, we were one of the top teams in the state/area.  This season we lost a bit of our identity because our best player (Jarret Olson - PG 2016, St. Bede Academy) found out he had a fracture in his back in late June.  He was our leader and set the tempo for every game.  That said, we had other players that stepped up and carried us for long stretches.

Standout Performers:

Illinois All Access Pass
