Note: This week, with the start of official practices for fall sports looming, we’ll look at five different sports and examine the key issues heading into the 2016-17 calendar season.

Bedford North Lawrence finished 19-8 and won another sectional championship while averaging only 49.1 points per game, and that average dropped drastically to a 39.3 in four tournament games. BNL struggled against the tougher teams on its schedule, when secondary options were often shut down. When points were difficult to score, when the defense was forced to determine the outcome, the margin for error was razor thin.
