Notes:
The big news at Midland Lee is the leaving of head coach Randy Quisenberry after 5 seasons and the hiring of James Morton. With only 6 starters and 22 lettermen returning a playoff run in 2009 might be pretty tough. The Rebels will battle for that 4th playoff spot and finish the regular season around 6-4 or 7-3. If they make the playoffs, one or two rounds and thats it.
