Six returnees anchor the underclassmen dominated lineup for Albion which is getting set for the non league season opener at Hilton on Dec. 3.

Junior Justice Nauden and sophomore Kelsee Soule, who both earned Niagara-Orleans All-League honorable mention last year, head Albion’s veteran group which also includes seniors Arianna Smith and Jessica Green, junior Mandi Covis and freshman Chanyce Powell.

“We have a good, young team with some talented kids,” said Coach Lucian Price. “They enjoy playing together and they worked hard in the off season so this is a nice opportunity to grow together. Things are looking up.”

Albion, which went 9-5 in N-O action a year ago, will also host Elba on Dec. 9 before beginning the league schedule at Akron on Dec. 13.
