PRINCESS ANNE, Md. — With a slew of injuries to several key contributors, the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks are going to need their newcomers to play significant roles all season long.

On Friday night in the opening game of the 2017-18 season, a pair of freshmen guards came off the bench to lead the Hawks against the Valley Forge Patriots.

Injuries to the likes of Dontae Caldwell and Ryan Andino have opened up minutes in the back court, and the Hawks may have found their replacements against the Patriots. Cameron Bacote and Sean Hoggs both came off the bench and provided a big boost to the Hawks’ offensive attack.

The pair combined for 51 points on the night, and helped guide the Hawks to their first season-opening win in more than a decade.

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. — Bobby Collins is entering his fourth season as the head coach of the Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks in 2017-18, and he’s looking to get the team back into the post-season for the first time since 2014-15.

In Collins’ first year in Princess Anne, he guided the Hawks to a record of 18-15 overall, and a spot in the 2015 CollegeInsider.com Tournament. Despite an opening round loss to the High Point Panthers, the season was a success for the Hawks.

Fast forward to the 2017-18 season, and the Hawks are coming off back-to-back losing seasons. Last season, they took a step forward again, finishing sixth in the MEAC standings, and they advanced to the MEAC Tournament semi-finals.

Heading into this season, the Hawks are looking to build off of last year’s momentum, and contend for a MEAC title once more.

On the team’s official website, the Hawks have posted their 2017-18 schedule, which includes 15 non-conference contests. Coach Collins has assembled another tough slate of games that will test his players from the outset.
