About the Aviators: We have only 5 returning varsity players, 3 of which were starters. We are very young/inexperienced. We do not have much size, but speed and outside shooting will hopefully make up for lack of size. We look to improve each game as we get used to our roles and how one another play. – coach Bardonaro
