With a year under their belt for head coach Lance Schneider, Miamisburg appears ready to take the next step and be a menace in the GWOC. The Vikings lost seven games in a row last year before rebounding to win their final two contests and gain some momentum and confidence heading into 2020.

“We have a good core of players returning from the 2019 season. Our offseason leadership and commitment has been tremendous to this point. We have made great strides to get to the level we need to be and compete with the teams on our schedule,” Schneider states.

There is still work to be done but things are moving in the right direction. “We need to develop a passion for competition and continue to develop leadership and team dynamics,” Schneider says.

When Miamisburg starts taking on the persona of its head coach we will know that they have turned the corner. That means not being satisfied with just being competitive but winning on a regular basis.
