Last season: The Knights finished 19th as a team in the 4A state competition, 5-8 during regular season matches and came just short of winning the 4A Wesco district title.
Strengths: “This is the most experienced group I’ve had since I’ve been here,” said head coach Bryan Stelling. “The core group did a lot of off-season work, and we’re starting a higher level this year.”
The team’s captains said they felt the group was very committed this season, and that they expect several teammates to make it to state.
Focus: “Conditioning and hard cardio,” said the coach.
Captains: Seniors David Bikoev, Ryan James, Tyler Webly, Tyler Frisch and junior Spencer Mitchell
Meet to watch: Cascade and Edmonds-Woodway
“Cascade,” said the captains. “Wesco South is tough this year.”
The Knights will take on Cascade on Jan. 23, before hosting Edmonds-Woodway on Jan. 30.
