Coming off a 16-11 season, head coach Casey Stitzel is looking for another successful stint during his eighth season at the helm of the program. A well-rounded team, the Aggies will be led by two-time all-conference honoree, senior Chris Moran, as well as incoming freshmen who are poised to make an immediate impact 

The Aggies are expected to once again compete in the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Freedom as they advanced to the conference championship game last season, backed by two buses of fans traveling to the game to support the team. They have taken home two conference titles and two NCAA playoffs berths in the past five years.
