University of Rochester Yellowjackets
2021-2022 SEASON PREVIEW
- First-year head coach Mario Yanez leads his alma mater into competition for the first time next month after serving as an assistant coach with the Yellowjackets right after graduation.
- A tall task lies ahead of him, however, with only four starters returning from Rochester’s No. 6-ranked finish two years ago.
- Much will be asked of a diverse and talented group of recruits who step on campus with big shoes to fill and high hopes of another finish in the Potter Cup (A) Division.
