We are planning to win the Herget Title for the fourth year in a row and to make it as far in the postseason as possible. We take it each point and game at a time.

We have many big rivals this season but I think Needham is going to be a good competitive rival this year, because we shared the Herget Title with them last year and they always give us a good game.
