Sadly career statistics for the team or individuals cannot be reproduced, only portions of our senior season can. Our junior season team had 4 starters from our senior year team and 5 played some varsity in our sophomore year as well. Clearly several players would be in the record book for career statistics. Unless additional records are found the career history is lost forever.
