Notes:
The Eagles are looking for another championship run in 2011 but have to go through a much-improved Mason team to do it this year.   With Mason and Ganado in the region, this will be anything but a cakewalk come playoff time, but with Horton and Head running behind Mitchell and Vasquez anything can happen. Another 9 win season should be in the books.
