"As far as our mindset, we don't look at it as a big school and a small school thing," he said. "It's just a matter of this is our next opponent, this is a step that we have to take to get to where we want to be.

Cumberland went 4-1 in the LIC's Eastern Division last year, with its lone loss coming to Casey-Westfield. They also dropped non-divisional games to Olney and Paris.
It'll be business as usual for Cumberland in its final season, as they're looking to keep their recent tradition of making the playoffs alive.
"We want to put ourselves in the best position we can to win the conference," Maynard said. "We'd like to win our division and have a chance to win the overall conference as well."
That quest begins Friday when they travel to Paris at 7 p.m.
