Times and expectations have changed and McBride knows it. “Overall, it was a success,” McBride said. “We won our first ever back-to-back league championships, going 24-1 over the last two years in our league with kids that hadn’t had a whole lot of success in the program before they got to us. They leaned how to compete and win.” The team also won its home tournament midway through the year.
