Bishop Lynch may be in a rebuilding year but that should not be taken as them not being talented. There were several players on last year's JV that would have been varsity players if not for the strength of that senior Varsity team.
I am not saying they will be in first place but they will be a team that gets stronger as the year progesses and they gain experience playing against varsity teams. They won't have the power of last year's team but will hit. They also have quality arms that could be exceptional.
It is unfair to compare any team to last year's varsity as a team like that only comes along once every twenty years.
