Upsala will once again field a young roster this spring as it contends with Royalton, Swanville and Eagle Valley for the top spot in the Prairie Conference South.
Leading the Cardinals will be a trio of seniors in Alissa Zehrer, Kim Mayer and Maria Jensen.
Upsala won its playoff opener last spring before falling to Prairie Conference champion Browerville in the second round.
Graduating from last year’s team were Kristen Smieja, Megan Tschida and Miranda Voller.
Upsala is scheduled to open the season at Holdingford, April 8, with its home opener slated for April 9 against Long Prairie-Grey Eagle.
