Summary

Servite returns a load of talent from last season's 7-4 team — most from the Class of 2022. A one-point loss to eventual national champion St. John Bosco showed the program is back to compete with Southern California's best. Do not be surprised if they pose a threat to Mater Dei and the Braves in the Trinity League within the next two seasons.
