BENTON -- Following a 5-15 season, the Kelly Hawks will be leaning on a young group this year.
After losing Trey Drury, Garrett Alsup, Stosh Lovett, Mike Kuykendall and Sawyer Elfrink to graduation, Kelly will rely heavily on lone senior Ian Householder and juniors Gabe Felter and Aaron Grainger. They will be joined by newcomers Jeff Gates, Brent Forck, Gaven Ray, Austin Wadlington and Dustin Schwartz.
"With only one senior we are needing some of our younger players to step up," said Kelly coach Josh Eftink. "With the returning players and the newcomers we have, we are excited about the upcoming season."
