New in 2017, we will be using a team organization application called Teamsnap in order to send communications to players and parents. Hit the button below and fill in the short form. You will then be sent an invitation from Teamsnap to join the group. (9th-12th Grade)
In 2016 our Varsity went 19-8, won a share of the SWL title, finished the regular season ranked number 9 in 5a, and earned the right to host a Regional Playoff. At that playoff we battled hard in some marathon matches but unfortunately lost in a second tiebreaker and narrowly missed the State Tournament. We did all that without having a single senior on the team.
Since we will potentially return the entire Varsity team we expect that the 2017 team will be even better. With several players having played varsity for multiple years we will certainly be the most experienced team in the state. We will set some lofty goals hoping to turn our experience into a berth at State and a shot at bringing Fruita a championship.
As our team becomes more competitive, it becomes harder to make the squads. Since we had no seniors on the 2016 team there won’t be much movement on the 2017 team. There also won’t be much room. Last year we had 31 total players. That’s an average of 10 players per squad, which is about all you can get into a match. We’ll see what the numbers look like when we get to tryouts, but it is possible that this year we will make a “C” team comprised of both Freshman and some Sophomores instead of just having a “Freshman” team.
We are looking forward to the coming season. It should be a great one.
