“It was exciting to play in my first varsity game and on top of that score in it too,” said Keane.

After seven weeks of practice, the team was ready to play somebody besides themselves.

“As a senior, I was ready to start playing in actual games because this is the last time I get to play with the rest of the guys. And I’m glad that although it’s a short season, that we still get to play,” said Laughlin.
