Ahokas is looking forward to another season.
“The next season will definitely be different for Welhot as our new head coach and the new era he brings are going to give us more strength. Welhot is going to me stronger and more competitive than before. Personally, I have high expectations for my own performance and I hope I can help the team to go far next spring.”
