Top athletes: F Tyson Perkins (Sr.), MF Andrew Bustios (Sr.), MF Sergio Borboa (Sr.), F Denis Tayou (Sr.), MF Julio Coizeau (Sr.), MF Jose Lopez (So.), D David VanHoose (So.)

Outlook: The Grizzlies struggled to find success last season, but return eight starters and should be in better position to compete.

“Even though we have been moved down a division, I know that the level of soccer remains high,” Tippett said. “Our expectations this year are the same as each year before. We want to make the playoffs and make our community proud by playing the beautiful game to the best of our ability.”
