The Pike Liberal Arts Patriots are the two-time defending state champions. They'll go for a three-peat this season in AISA Class AAA.
Head Coach Steven Kilcrease is back for another run at it. There’s a lot to live up to as the Patriots have gone 23-2 over the last two seasons. The Patriots lost six two-way starters to graduation. But, Kilcrease thinks they'll still have some depth at the skill positions.
Pike Lib opens the season Friday night at Lyman Ward at 7:00 p.m.
