The Thunderbolts' first season back in Class A in nearly 20 years could prove to be challenging. Their schedule consists of five Lincoln teams (North Star, East, Northeast, Southeast and Southwest), while taking road trips to Omaha (Northwest), Kearney and Norfolk. Pius X will play Northeast at Seacrest Field October 4th, but their games with other Lincoln teams will be at Aldrich Field. It's prompted school officials to bring in extra seating and another consession stand.
