"I am very proud of how our team has performed this season," says Symon Pfau, Head Coach of the Pheonix. "They massively improved from last year, due to off-season work and their commitment to one another through the season. This is a wonderful group of players, and we are really looking forward to our last home game on the 12th!"

This year, the team got their new name: The Phoenix, and a new look! The change has inspired his players says Pauf, "they love the new jerseys! Our players are proud and excited about the new branding and the opportunities in the new Composite High School.
