Outlook: "The Rams will look to reload this season," coach Hill said. "We have returning all-conference guards Thomas Dillard and Van Rolle, who should ease the transition of having nine new players on the varsity roster. We are looking to be competitive in the Chesapeake Division this year."

Key returning players: Ryan Bonhoff, Sr. (F); Jason Lawrence, Sr. (G)

Outlook: "We lost a lot of players from a very successful team last year," rookie skipper Lacock said. "We have a young, inexperienced group who is ready to work and be the best team they can be. The players have set goals to get better each day, and to be the hardest-working team in the league."

Outlook: "Last year, Harford Christian had a brand new coach with a brand new system," Westerlund said. "This year I'm very optimistic about my second season at the helm. There isn't as much of a transition period as there was last year, and there is more continuity within the program. This year we have a good mix of returners and newcomers. I am excited about the talent we have this year, as we look to contend in the MACSAC conference, and be more of a presence in Harford County basketball. The program still has a long way to go, but this season we have the tremendous opportunity to take some huge steps in the right direction. We have worked extremely hard over the summer to improve our game and prepare for the rigors of our season. We are excited about the journey ahead and look forward to the challenges that are waiting for us. We look to bring back the proud basketball tradition Harford Christian once had."
