Orlandi was the Frontier Conference’s Player of the Year as a senior as the Warriors enjoyed their highest finish ever at the national tournament. LCSC won its first 23 games to start the season and went 17-1 in FC play as it captured both the conference’s regular-season and tournament titles for the second consecutive year.
