Captains Announced: Luke Davidson and Ethan Marvin will be team captains for the 2015-2016 season. I know they will do an outstanding job of leading the program in the coming months as we begin preparing for next season.  Luke and Ethan are both incredibly hard workers, earnest students and individuals of high character.  Great job and congratulations to Luke and Ethan! - Coach Kilpatrick
