What is your team outlook for 2019?
Becahi has won 5 District Championships in the last 6 years. They have been to three straight State-Semis and are hopeful they can make a run again this year. Competing in the EPC18 South is never an easy task, however, in 2018 they once again proved they belong and are looking forward to the challenge again in 2019. With many key starters gone the Golden Hawks look to replenish the line up with some young talent. The strength of the team certainly lies in the skill positions with much of the offensive and defensive front having to be replaced. With all the recent success, the Golden Hawks will surely be expected to compete for District Gold and if the young guys develop, maybe more.
