Being in the Liberty League Championship, making an appearance there the last 2 seasons and coming up short. Obviously the next step for us is making that next move and then kind of bringing home a trophy there, then taking that farther into the NCAA tournament. We’re very excited for this season and have high expectations,” said Joe Scarfi, St. Lawrence Graduate Student, and Defenseman.
