After losing a handful of key players from last year’s team, Castle enters this season with a mix of veteran experience and young talent. Despite having some holes to fill this season, they’re optimistic about this year’s team and the key guys they do have returning.
Castle enters 2017 hoping for their third sectional title in a row, but head coach Doug Hurt says there’s another goal they’re more focused on: contending for the conference title.
“The regular season is really important to us, that’s really the first step,” said Hurt.
The Knights havent won the SIAC title since 2012, but are hoping this season will put them in contention.
Castle will be on the road at Terre Haute South in week one.
