Another success for the team was against Marian when they won 13-6. They also had a very strong win against Crystal Lake South. They ended the game with an exciting win of 10-4.
Sophomore Rafael De La Paz, a new varsity member on the team, is ready for the upcoming season.
“I’m looking forward to play with this great group of guys and play under these coaches to hopefully have a successful season and become a better player at the varsity level,” De La Paz said.
Returning players that will be completing in their last season playing for Huntley High School will be seniors Samuel De La Paz, Brock Dickte, Hunter Gertz, Adam Mayer, Adam Miller, Teddy Olszewski, and Chase Zion.
