Team Outlook: STRENGTHS — Experience and leadership headline Lansing’s strengths.
A core of returning juniors will provide the Lions with a wealth of seasoning while Stephen Szmed, the group’s lone four-year senior, comes in as the team’s unquestioned leader.
WEAKNESSES — Despite the high upperclass turnout, the team is relatively small and thus individual performances will be even more vital to the team’s overall scores throughout the year.
Big meets: Home meets on Jan. 15, Jan. 22; At Inter-League Championship meet on Feb. 6
Coach says: “I’m looking forward to a great season. I am encouraged by the positive attitudes and strong work ethic of our team members.”
