Using a "Win the Day" motto, the Colonels went 4-5 last season and qualified for the Division 1 playoffs for the first time in 10 years. They had a come-from-behind victory over rival MAU and were robbed of a postseason victory over Champlain Valley Union because of an inadvertant whistle at the very end.
