“This will be our fifth annual event after hosting successful events in previous years,” commented Head Coach SCOTT BALLANTYNE. “We had 8 players from our 2015 roster that attended this event last year, so it’s an important recruiting event for us. The day will be filled with many opportunities for recruits and their families to see what it would be like to join a championship calibre progam."
The Golden Hawks finished with the highest winning percentage in school history in 2015 with a record of 25-8.
