Team members include Matt Chase, Mitchel Stapleton, Brian McMahon, Mitch Libby, Tyler Stapleton, Noah McAvoy, Brian Niznik, Griffin Allaire, Everette Allen, Guss Madsen, Wes Moody, Mathew Buonanno, Quentin Curtiss, Jacob Jarman, Tyler Evans, and Tim Martell. Team members were each presented with a certificate. Coach Winn was presented with a certificate for his leadership.

“They were a tremendous team (and) worked a bit past their abilities,” said Winn who added, “We had our struggles.” One of the problems the team faced included the temporary loss of a crucial team member due to an injury.
