And with those two leading the way, Marriotts Ridge finds itself in the driver’s seat once again for another run at county, region and state titles.

“This is a different team than last year, there’s no getting around that with eight or nine starters gone,” Najib said. “But the mentality Flynn brings, about having pride in putting this jersey on … we go out with very high expectations for ourselves.

“We know we’re going to have to work for everything we’re going to get and right now that’s exactly what we’re doing.”
