Team Outlook: STRENGTHS — With 18 returning letter-winners from last year's team, the Lady Lions will hold as much or more experience as nearly everyone they face this season.
WEAKNESSES — Defensively, the team will be grooming a new goalkeeper into the lineup, which always includes a period of transition for both the back-line and keeper. Communication will be paramount.
