The Lancers also finished with eight shutouts, also a school record.  LaVille outscored HNAC opponent’s 229-0.

“It was a tremendous group of kids,” said eighth grade coach John Mumm, in his 23rd season.  “It was a group  of kids that sometimes the best thing we could do was get out of their way and let them play.  This group had everything you wanted – size, speed, we could strike quickly or grind it out.  We were also pretty stout on the defensive side of the ball.”
