The Cavaliers enter the 2019 campaign with high expectations. After qualifying for the Region IV quarterfinals the last two years, the program now looks to take the next big step. “We are in the largest region in the country, having to play 16 regional opponents to qualify for the tournament,” said Coach Barclay.
“The past two years we peaked at the right time during the season to qualify, but we ran out of steam by the quarterfinals,” Coach Barclay said. “This year we will be prepared. We have the largest and deepest roster in the program’s history, running three players deep in most positions. The pool of talent that has come together for this season is by far the best.” Expectations are high for this team, both on and off the field.
“In the last four years we have had 19 Academic All-Americans in the classroom and this recruiting class should continue to add to the growing list,” said Coach Barclay.
"As a coaching staff, we are extremely proud of the accomplishments the program has made over the past five years. But, we still have lots of work to do. Every year our players have seen the accomplishments of the previous team and set their goals to continue this upward momentum. I am confident that this year will not disappoint.”
