Coach's comments: "It's going to be a young team. Their attitude is great, but it's probably going to be a rough season."
The Carroll County Sun's outlook: The Cavaliers are a very young team in a very tough league. One cause of concern for Barnes is the team's lack of depth. Theywon't get much help from last year's junior varsity, which lost every match. They have four seniors -- Buck, Susan Barnes, Bly and Buchanan -- to provide leadership. Barnes is pleased with the team's attitude and hard work. Their spirits are strong, but this is basically a rebuilding year.
