Notes:
This looks to be a championship season for the Indians. It will be tough getting by Mason and Goldthwaite but a possible matchup vs. Canadian in the championship game would be a good one. With 18 returning starters and players like Labay, Gorman and Cihal this team is solid.   This is the best shot they have had in team history to capture a title and looks to be the best one in years to come as well.
