Concern: Depth at forward and defense.
Coach’s outlook: “This has been the best preseason in my tenure at Triton. All the players that tried out have trained so hard and have stepped up putting aside individual goals to focus on the hardest schedule in the program’s history. Unlike many, these fearless young men have embraced the concept of team and the move to Division 1. They don’t want to hear the word ‘rebuild’ and have kept the goals of the past three years.”
First game: Saturday (7 p.m.) vs. Amesbury
Coach: Bill Burns (18th season)
Last year’s record: 8-10-2

Newcomers: Cam Wolbach, so.; Ethan Bridgewater, so.
Strengths: Senior leadership and defensive experience.
Coach’s outlook: “We certainly look to be back in the hunt this season in the CAL, which I believe to be one of the strongest Division 2 leagues in the state. I expect our upperclassmen to lead this group with hard work toward our regular season goal of a berth in the state tournament.”
