Head coach: Matt Porter, 15th season
2016 record: 16-9 (6-2 Northeast, second)
Returning lettermen (starters): Six (four)
Top players: OH Isaac Frazier (Jr.), S Justin Sandoval (Sr.), MB Noah Sutton (Sr.), MB Juan Magana (Sr.)
Outlook: The Vikings bring back four starters from last year’s squad.
“We lost two key players but hope that Isaac Frazier and Anthony Palma can replace outside hitter Marty Heavey (lost to graduation),” Porter said. “Justin Sandoval is an excellent returning setter, and Noah Sutton and Juan Magana are very experienced middles.
“We are balanced and experienced and hope to be very competitive.”
