“It went well,” he said. “... We’re going to have pretty close to last year (in terms of numbers).”

But, the team would welcome more players.

“We took right up to just before our last game last year,” he said, adding it will be the same philosophy this season. “We won’t turn away anyone.”

As it stands, MacLean said the roster looks pretty solid, returning their top two quarterbacks and top two running backs from last season.

“And through spring we picked up some receivers,” he added.

“So we’re going to be good. We’ve got some talent.”

The Lady Gridders season starts Aug. 30 in Melville, with the first home game scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 8 at 2 p.m. at Century Field.
