The Armstrong High School softball team finished as runnerup to Hopkins in 2016 in Section 6AAAA, one season after winning just one game.
The Falcons start this year needing to replace six starters from a year ago and hoping to improve on their 3-10 conference record from a year ago. Armstrong's lineup features a handful of players key to last year's postseason success.
Armstrong is scheduled to play its home opener Thursday afternoon against Anoka.
