Looking to rebound from last year’s 3-11 Niagara-Orleans League campaign, Roy-Hart is lead by a quartet of returning senior starters.

Andy Xapsos, who earned first team N-O All-League honors, heads that foursome which also includes Ben Maynard, Justin Heschke and Chris Anderson. Heschke and Anderson both earned N-O All-League Honorable Mention.

The Rams are also looking to juniors Tim Moriarity, DJ Davis, Brendon Hess and Eric Fitch along with sophomores Jake Bruning and Matt Borel.

“We’ve got 16 players this year and from 1 to 16 they can all play,” said Rams Coach Joe Pawlak. “We’re very deep and we’ve got good size so our expectations are extremely high. We’ve got a really tough schedule so it will challenge them and we’re hoping things take off.”

The Rams will entertain Emerson (Dec. 2) and Cleve Hill (Dec. 8) in non league games before hosting their own tournament on Dec. 11 and 12. The opening round of the tourney will have Holley vs. Tonawanda and Lyndonville vs. Roy-Hart.
