OUTLOOK

St. Margaret's is one of the few teams in the league that can boast a strong offensive line, with depth and experience in Arreola, Brad Lyman, Matt Taylor and Paul Lancaster. The Tartans have to replace two all-league players, quarterback Rhett Swanson and running back Peter Spenuzza. Coulter Fleming and Cory Westrope are expected to battle for the quarterback spot, with a good group of young receivers to throw to, including all-league end Comerford. Defense is a question for Lock, but the Tartans should improve on last season's 3-6 record. The Tartans' kicking game is strong; Hallenbeck kicked a 52-yard field goal last season.
