2017 Season Outlook:
We're looking to grow upon last year. We had a lot of inexperience last year and it was seen with mistakes we made as a team. With the experience we have from last year, our hopes are to take those lessons learned from last year and be on the other side. We speak of climbing the mountain and our hopes are that this season we can continue to do that every day.
Outlook on Conference/Division:
We have a very tough non-conference schedule with Goodrich, Perry and Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard this season.  With those games and a league schedule that includes New Lothrop, Beecher, Hamady, and Atherton, we have our hands full this year. Our kids are very hungry to show what they have and improve upon last years marks. While our schedule is tougher than it has been in recent years,  we expect to compete against every team we line up against. Our kids want to show that they belong and leave their mark on the Bendle program.
