The lowdown

Obviously, there's no point in sugar coating it: after a few modestly successful years building out of the perennial Classic 8 cellar, North reverted to its previous form in 2015-16 and now will begin the slow build back. New coach Bob Whiteford enjoyed success as an assistant at Waukesha West the last several seasons, and the team did not have a senior on the roster last year, so even if the Northstars don't rack up a ton of wins this season, they're sure to be more competitive. North will have a new offensive and defensive season, and Whiteford feels the team had a strong summer as it looks to rebuild culture. This team could be ready to make a move within two years.

Opening tip

This year's line senior, Camryn Szolyga, will be relied upon to shepherd a roster that remains extremely young. "We will look for her to lead us with experience and take a step forward in her production this year," Whiteford said. "Cianna Colon (junior), Megan Johnson, Cailin Demerath (junior) and Eli Serdynski are among others who we will look to step up in production for last season."
