How the 2016 season ended: 7-9, 5th in WVC; Lost to Wyoming Seminary in District 2 semifinals, 3-2.

2017 rundown: 2017 rundown: The Trojans finished the season as a middle-of-the-pack team last year but saved the best for the postseason, when they took down top seed Blue Ridge in a 4-3 overtime victory in the quarterfinals and came within a goal of Wyoming Seminary in the semifinals. Like others in the division, this year’s group is young — it replaces seven starters — and low on numbers, but it’ll look for improvement as the weeks go by.

Two-year midfield starter Nate Kreitzer (four goals) and forward Adam Eckhart (six goals as a freshman) will lead the attack, with defenseman Justin Ostopick and keeper Trahjan Krupinski manning the other end of the field.
