Camden, DE.- The 2013 season for the Caesar Rodney Riders was a successful one. CR went undefeated in the Henlopen North Conference and played were one game away from the Division I State Championship game.
The upcoming season brings a lot of optimism as usual, but also some questions. After losing a number of key starters to graduation, the Riders are in for yet another tough season schedule wise. CR opens up the season against Division I Champion Salesianum in Camden, before going to play last year's runner-up Middletown.
Coach Mike Schonewolf knows the value of a front heavy schedule, and hopes it benefits them later in the season. He said, "Well we try to attach the little perspective to the season, and make sure we understand that playing the best in the beginning of the season helps to allow you to measure yourself against the best, and that's certainly something we'll look forward to in the first three ball games, seeing how we stack up against some of the traditionally strong programs in the state, and hopefully that'll get us ready for our conference."
