SALEM — Ranked number three going into last year’s 3A/2A/1A tournament, the Cavaliers were handed a disappointing 2-1 loss to Westside Christian who they had beaten 5-1 during the regular season. This was the first time in several years the team earned a bid to the playoffs. Last year’s overall record was 14-4, and their league record was 5-3. With seven seniors gone from last year’s roster, the Cavaliers should prove an interesting redemption story from last year. Head coach Robin Smith says to keep an eye on striker Ryan Orlandini, and that he expects his team to have a chance at a league title and return to the state tournament.
