We will have Anthony Doherty from Challenger with us again this spring. Anthony was honored as the Challenger Mid-west Coach of the Year.  Joining Anthony will be Kieron Norris.  This will be his first season in Loveland.   Anthony has been with us for over three years and knows many of our players.  He's a great teacher.  Hope you will get to know both Anthony and Kieron this spring.
