  1. Congratulations, I seen this team play at the Sportsplex and they are a GOOD TEAM. Well coached and they play hard ,but I didt see the Rankin kid name that goes to ORMA? the games I saw he was the best player on the team he had about 20 to 25 pst ever game.

  2. The Rankin kid is a very good player. He played in the spring with the team but is playing with
    Oak Ridge for the summer since it’s his high school team.
