I am writing this a couple weeks after the 2015 season has come to a close.  And though each season has progressively become more fun and exciting, the 2013 season was the most memorable.  This season kicked the team and NGS into second gear, taking it to the next level of legendary status.

Le Rouge went the season undefeated, capturing first place in the Great Lakes Division, which allowed them to host the playoffs.

It was the season that increased regular season attendance to 1,484 per match, with an additional 2,600 attending the Great Lakes Division semi-final match on July 13th.
