Most all of the kids who are varsity level players are freshman and inexperienced sophomores. Add in the fact that 2 of the guys they were going to depend on as leaders are currently ineligible and its a bad combination. I do like that Sargent is back coaching the JV and helping Barker on the bench. Apollo has a solid staff and I would expect them to work their way out of it eventually, but baring a transfer or transfers its going to be at least a couple of years before they can compete with the top of the region again.
