Rice Memorial has been a regular season contender in Division I, but the school has failed to push forth in the playoffs since moving up in 2016.
The Green Knights have 12 Division II championships to their name, and have qualified for two playoffs in their three years in Division I.
RMHS has yet to get back to their winning ways in the postseason, and have lost both playoff games at the top level.
A 5-5 finish in 2018 earned the team the fourth seed in last year’s playoffs, where they fell to Middlebury 33-18.
Rice kicks off its season on Friday, August 31 at 7 p.m. when the Green Knights travel to perennial contender Hartford.
