OUTLOOK

Cardinals had good results in conference and post-season but lost four of top six via graduation, including four-year starters Marco Vazquez and Matt Hallstrom. Weather conditions have been hostile, so little chance to format an opening lineup. Trent Fader and Jim Neis, in no particular order, will be at 1-2 singles. Matt Horning and Evan Armstrong played some 4-singles and 3-doubles a year ago. Ryan Sheehan and Chris Van Doren also return with varsity time. Doubles combos will be all new.
