Coach: Bryan Kelly
Postseason: MIAA A Conference finalist
Outlook: The Cardinals are loaded with All-Metro talent and depth at every position, making them the clear favorite in the stacked MIAA A Conference. After reaching the title game last year, they'll have experience and motivation on their side as well.
Coach: Brooks Matthews
Last season: 13-5, No. 1
Postseason: MIAA A champion
Outlook: An inspired senior class led the Greyhounds to the title last season, setting an ideal example of what needs to be done. With an experienced defense expected to set the early tone, can Gilman find the same magic this year?
Coach: Jack Crawford
Last season: 8-10, No. 9
Postseason: Missed MIAA A playoffs
Outlook: With only seven seniors last year, the Dons showed their inexperience at times, as they lost six games by two goals or fewer. With 24 returning players, led by a deep and talented midfield, Loyola is expecting to return to form in a big way this season.
