Ada



Coach: Chris Sautter



Division: IV



Years at school, record: Eighth, 104-55



Last year’s  record: 22-4



Returning letterwinners: Mitchell Faine*, Alex Weber, Matt McBride, Konnor Baker*



Promising newcomers: Erik Grimslid, Tyler Simmons, Zach Gibson, Ty Jolliff, Austin Weber



Team outlook: Ada, a Division IV state semifinalist last season, is aiming high again despite the absence of four of the starters from that team this year.  The big  question is if Mitchell Faine might be able to come back from a football knee injury.
