There's a new look at Kent this season.
The Lions are coming off a 19-4-0 season that saw them reach the Elite 8 semifinals, falling to eventual runner-up Phillips Andover. They dominated the second half of the season, thanks to a 14-2-0 run after the holiday break. Their only two losses in that stretch came at the hands of Andover and eventual champion Williston Northampton.
But even with quite a group of returners primed for another deep run, changes are afoot for Kent with head coach Sam Ftorek entering the fold.
"Expectations are high," said Ftorek, the son of former Bruins coach Robbie Ftorek. "Nine seniors and a real veteran staff, which is awesome. They're committed to some high-powered schools, which is nice."
