Being a young team actually has its perks. Sure, it can be tough to battle with all the teams that are loaded with veteran seniors. At the same time, though, having an inexperienced roster allows a program to build up its strength for an extended period of time. Players begin to gel as they get comfortable with the teammates around them.

Every offseason presents a new opportunity to look at which teams with a lot of returning starters could make a big jump the following year. That’s what we’re going to do here. Let’s take a look at some of 2021’s young squads that are poised to have quite an uptick next season.


Elkhorn North

Yes, this is probably the obvious pick. Even so, this feature is not complete without the Wolves.

Of course, Elkhorn North had no problems finding success in 2021 despite not having a senior on the roster. The team was a set away from breaking into the Class B title match, and now the Wolves look poised to make 2022 the year to crown a new champion.
