But there’s one huge reason why the Mounties are sitting atop the standings with a 5-0 mark and looking like a potent squad in excellent shape to defend their state championship come March.
“I think we have the depth that any team in the league would envy,” offered MSC coach Steve Shea. “I feel like we have depth at every position, which is very nice to have.”
