The Bucs come into action this week under head coach Vince Ichihara with a record of 4-14.

According to Ichihara, key members to date have included Natalie Mcdermott, Brooklyn Grooms, Mckenzie Grooms, Maci Grenfell, Gwen Lundstrum and Maya Jessee.

“The team has had a roller coaster season with new players mixing in with the veterans and only two returning players from the varsity league champion team from last year,” Ichihara remarked.

“We had a great win against Sweetwater High last week that showed our potential. With no seniors on the team this season, the future is bright for our team as we move forward. We still have an outside chance of making the playoffs this season which would be a great experience for the new players.”
