“Our team has been working harder than ever to get in shape, trying to improve each week so we can peak at the end of the season,” DeMuro said. “I’ve been impressed by the team’s work ethic and positive attitude so far this season. Hopefully we can maintain it for the next seven weeks!”

Next up, the team is set to host John Bapst Friday, Jan. 4 at 6 p.m.
