UNITED NORTH CENTRAL WARRIORS
Head Coach: Jacob Oyster
Conference: Park Region
Section: 8A

The Warriors will have back from their good 14-8 dual meet campaign seven section place winners, including two state qualifiers of which one earned state honors and eight others with a wide range of experience. They did graduate four seniors last spring, all four were section place winners, one was a state qualifier. This will be a young team, yet look for them to make continued improvements threw out the course of the season. They should challenge their dual meet numbers from last season. Look for the Warriors to possibly move up in the PRC standings and make another challenge for a top four spot in what should be a pretty balanced section dual meet campaign. Ethan Hendrickson, Eion Ness, Dakota Meech, TJ Jasicki, Dylan Rasmussen, Hank Tellers and Vince Dailey should be key leaders thru out the season.
