Oley Valley (17-5-2 in 2013) played deeper into the postseason than any other team in Berks County last season. The Lynx made a run to the state quarterfinals. But much of that talent is not there in 2014.
Oley has lost 11 seniors and faces a youth movement this season. The Lynx acknowledge as much, but at the same time, they know the talent is there within their younger guys. It just might not happen right away.
Ben Kerkeslager is one of the few veterans back to help lead the way for the District III runners-up.
