Sacred Heart Pioneers
The Sacred Heart Pioneers had a great season and finished with a 20-13 record. They are fourth in the Northeast Conference. They are behind Merrimack Warriors, St Francis (PA) Red Flash and Robert Morris Colonials with a record of 12-6. This is going to be a new team coming this year as they don’t have five of their best scorers on the roster.
