Sweet back to defend title Madison, Winthrop will both field teams again BY SCOTT MARTIN Sports Editor

S

eth Sweet didn’t have a team to play for last year and didn’t compete much during the regular season, instead playing in a number of junior events. Yet, Sweet still made an impact on the high school golf scene, winning the Class C individual title. The Madison senior is back to defend his title and so is the Bulldogs golf team. Madison has a

2010 State Champions Team

Class A: Gorham Class B: Falmouth Class C: Houlton

Individual

Class A: Mike Arsenault, Gorham Class B: Greg Martin, Ellsworth Class C: Seth Sweet, Madison Schoolgirl: Ali Prescot, Fort Kent young roster, with three freshmen who should play key roles, but should be in the mix in the Mountain Valley Conference. “With Seth anchoring the lineup, we should be pretty good,” Madison coach Heath Cowan said. Sweet had a busy summer, highlighted by a trip to the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship. He missed the cut at that tournament, getting knocked out in a playoff. Sweet excelled once again in the Maine Amateur Championship, finishing fourth with a threeround total of 216. “Seth is getting longer and longer and longer,” Cowan said. “His confidence is growing. “The other thing is maturity. Some of the younger kids, I’ll send him out with them and he does as much coaching as I do.” Sweet is joined on the Bulldogs by junior Levi Richardson, who also played as an independent, sophomore Hunter Smith, and a trio of freshmen — Jarod Miller, Tripp Libby and Ty Cowan. Winthrop did not field a team last season either, but returns this fall with four quality golfers, including senior Tyler Foster, who will contend with Sweet for the Class C title. Foster finished tied for eighth at the Class C individual championships with an 84 last fall.

“He has aded significant length to his game,” Winthrop coach Lonney Steeves said, “but also improving his mid-range game. His putting has very much improved and he knows that 50yard shot, he recognizes that is his weakness.” Foster is joined by two freshmen, Tyler Morang and Adam Hachey, and sophomore Zach Steele, who would also be competitive. They were searching for a fifth golfer at press time to round out their scoring team. In Class A, Messalonskee and Cony have lost a number of players to graduation and hope to peak at the end of the season. Lawrence hopes to vault into contention since it returns five of its top six scorers from last season. “This is probably my best golf team in a long time,” said coach John Donato, who enters his 11th season. “We are vying for a playoff spot.” Sophomore Aaron Brown and junior Nick Noiles will play at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. Tyler Boudreau, Jordan Nutting and Keith Chesley also return as top scorers for the team. Newcomer Kelsie Dessent should also contribute. The Fairfield native won the Maine Junior Amateur Championship in the Girls 14 and Under division this summer. Messalonskee has a nice home course advantage, playing at Belgrade Lakes Golf Course, but returns just three lettermen from a team that finished 10-2 and qualified for the Class A team tournament. The Eagles have three juniors who should play well in Justin Rollins, Taylor Clark and Derek Guerrette, but not one senior. “It’s kind of a funny year, with no seniors,” Messalonskee coach Jim Kerschner said. “Basically, I have three returning lettermen I can count on.” Cony is also young, with a couple freshmen coach Tim Folsom thinks can contribute right away in Ben Leet and Thomas Foster. Tyler Leet will play No. 1 for the Rams, with Zack Gagne and Ryan Edwards filling out the lineup. Erskine has a strong group of golfers back, led by Simon Rollins, Shyler Scates and Josh Bailey. “This is one of the most experienced teams I’ve ever had,” Erskine coach Mike Soule said. Erskine sophomore Ashley Chubbuck qualified for the schoolgirl championship last season. Mt. Blue lost its No. 1 player

A CHAMPION: Seth Sweet won the Class C state title last fall, shooting 73. (Dom Clements) to graduation. The Cougars will likely start the season with Matt Dustin at No. 1. Nokomis has three seniors returning and will rely on younger players to contribute. Skowhegan, meanwhile, added 18 newcomers to its roster and hopes to build. In Class B, Waterville lost just once in the regular season but was hit hard by graduation and is low on numbers in the preseason. Maranacook, meanwhile, could vault into contention thanks to

some young, talented golfers. That group is led by Luke Ruffing, who qualified for the individual championships last season. Junior Tucker Whitman and sophomore Matt Delmar could also contend for a spot in the individual tournament. For the second consecutive season Oak Hill will feature a young team. The Raiders have gone 1-9 in each of the last two seasons. They only lost one senior to graduation, but four freshmen and three sophomores will help lead them this season. Jacob Martin returns as the team’s No. 1 golfer. Connor Keene and Dan Woodward, also sophomores, should produce as well. Mt. View and Maine Central Institute feature quality golfers in Eric Larrabee and Gavin Dugas. A sophomore at Mt. View, Larrabee qualified for the Class B individual tournament last fall. Dugas, meanwhile, is the son of J.W. Parks pro Mike Dugas, and has played well in Maine State Golf Association junior tournaments. Forest Hills junior Evan Worster won the East-West Conference individual title last season. Coach Andy McKendry hopes the Tigers can make a run at the team title this fall.

McClintock takes a run at 3-peat Mace, Ladd will also contend for state championships BY KEVIN ROUSSEAU Correspondent

ALWAYS ON THE RUN: Madison’s Matt McClintock ran the fastest time in the state at the state championship meet last season, winning the Class C title in 16 minutes. 0.91 seconds.

T

he rivalry between Madison’s Matt McClintock and Chase Boothbay’s Brown is one of a number of things to look forward to this cross country season.

McClintock, a senior, is one of the top runners in the state. The two-time defending Class C state champ ran the fastest time in the state at the state championship meets, regardless of class, last fall, at 16 minutes, 0.91 seconds. Two weeks earlier, at the Mountain Conference champiValley onships, however, Brown outran McClintock. “He’s always pushing my times down,” said McClintock about his friendly rival Brown. “I was lazy and got beat. It gave me a reason to train and showed me that nothing is handed to you.” McClintock has a new coach at Madison this season. Brandon Hagopian takes over for his father, Bob, who coached the team for 20 seasons. Brandon said McClintock, “Looks stronger and faster than he did last year. I expect him to be in the mid-15s, which only a few runners in Maine have ever done.” Meanwhile at Messalonskee, senior Harlow Ladd should also contend for a state title. Last fall, Ladd won both the Kennebec

second at the MVC championships last season, but lost some key contributors from that team to graduation. Molly Kieltyka and Randi Dennett led the way.

October,” said Menendez. Monmouth will look to junior Tiffany Pease, who placed fourth (23:00) at the MVC championship race last fall. The Winthrop girls finished

Valley Athletic Conference Class A and Eastern A regional titles, but injured himself during the state championship meet and finished eighth (16:53.04). “I realized I needed to train smarter. You can train too much or too little. Last year, I trained a little too much. It really wore me down and my body was prone to injury,” he said. Ladd’s individual goals this fall include a state championship, a top five showing at the New England championship meet and to qualify for the Foot Locker Cross Country Championships. Abby Mace of Maranacook also battled adversity last season. After winning the Class B state title as a freshman and sophomore, Mace worked through nagging injuries last season. Still, she finished second at the Class B state meet with a time of 19:25.64. “Fortunately, I think the injuries are behind me. I’m right where I want to be right now. It was a blessing in disguise as I’m a lot smarter about my training,” Mace said. “I learned the importance of stretching, icing, being careful and cross-training.” Her coach Rosalea Kimball said Mace has made her a better coach. “When you have a runner like Abby, you really have to do your homework. She’s really pushed me to the next level,” Kimball said. Along with Mace, the Maranacook girls have two other solid runners in junior Caroline Colan (4th at KVAC Class B meet, 22:00.1) and freshman Hannah Despres. “She’s been staying with Abby and Caroline,” said Kimball about Despres’ early-season training runs.

Also in the KVAC’s B division, Winslow will contend for the title. The Black Raiders have developed into a contender in just five years under coach Christina Bertolaccini’s tutelage. Last year, the Winslow boys and girls both placed second in at the KVAC B meet. For the Winslow girls, Molly Schassberger started the season with a stress fracture, but recovered and finished second at the KVAC B meet with a time of 21:56.7. Sophomore Audrey Jones had an outstanding rookie campaign, finishing 12th in the same race. “Our goal is to win the KVACs,” Schassberger said. Rob Stanton takes over as coach at Waterville, after four years of coaching the Lawrence girls. He said numbers are up. “We have a nice mix of veterans and some newcomers,” Stanton said. One of those newcomers, junior Bethanie Brown, is a “game changer,” according to her coach. Brown finished sixth in the 1,600meter race at the New England outdoor track and field championships in June. Many area teams in the MVC have a history of success such as Monmouth (Class C boys state champions in 2003, 2008) and Winthrop (3rd in Class C boys meet in 2009). Many of these teams are scrambling to find runners. “Last year, we had a difficult time having enough runners to compete. This year, we have 10 or 11 runners and we’ve picked up the quality,” Monmouth girls coach Tom Menendez said. “The philosophy is nothing matters until the end of the season. Our main goal is to get ready to run in

The heat is on in PTC A With changes in conference, only 4 teams will make playoffs BY TRAVIS LAZARCZYK AND BILL STEWART Staff Writers

T

he Pine Tree Conference Class A has a slightly new look this s e a s o n . Brewer and Mt. Blue left for Class B, leaving the league with 10 teams. That means a nine-game regular season, and only four teams making the playoffs, instead of the eight of recent years. That means some good teams will be going home, rather than to the postseason.

2010 State Champions Class A: Cheverus Class B: Mountain Valley Class C: Yarmouth “It’s going to feel tighter with just four teams making the playoffs,” Lawrence head coach John Hersom said. “I think every coach is feeling the pressure.” “It’s going to be brutal,” Skowhegan head coach Mike Marston said. Making the playoffs has become commonplace at Lawrence, where the Bulldogs haven’t missed the postseason since 2004. But despite four undefeated regular seasons since 2006, Lawrence hasn’t won the conference title since 2007. The Bulldogs’ offense is led by junior quarterback Spencer Carey, who became the starter last season. “All his skills as a quarterback have improved,” Hersom said. “We hope he’s taking more of a leadership role.” Senior Shaun Carroll and junior Anthony Sementelli will see most of the carries. Carroll also is one of the top kick/punt returners in the league, and returned a punt 70 yards for a touchdown in Lawrence’s exhibition game against Waterville. Center Josh Perry, healed from a broken ankle, is back for

his third year on the offensive line. Tackle Roy Barnaby and tight end Bryant Wade also are back, along with senior receiver Alex Leathers. “We don’t have a lot of depth on our line, but we feel they’ll be better than adequate,” Hersom said. “We’ll make sure of that.” Defense has been Lawrence’s strong suit for years, and the Bulldogs are coming off a season in which they allowed just under a touchdown per game. The Bulldogs graduated their entire defensive line, but Wade, Lucas Lawrence, Nick Routhier, Barnaby and Caleb Champagne will jump in and play. Lawrence’s defensive depth is in the secondary, where Carroll, Sementelli, Leathers and Carey all return. Twin brothers Jake and Josh Doolan also will see time. Messalonskee lost a 1,500yard rusher, Keenan Knox, to graduation, but with senior Sam Dexter, the Eagles have one of the best athletes in the league waiting for his turn. Dexter ran for 307 yards in 2010, and had 125 more receiving. “We’ll get Sammy more involved with the offense,” head coach Wes Littlefield said. Messalonskee’s offense was bolstered by the return of quarterback Travis St. Pierre, who spent last season at Kents Hill. Fullback Corey Foye and wingback Corey MacKenzie round out the Eagles’ backfield. Tight ends Jake Fenlason and Gage Landry are the only seniors on the offensive line, although tackle Jake Stinson, a junior, returns as a starter. The Eagles expect to be strong defensively, with Stinson anchoring the line after picking up four sacks last year. Kyle Gleason returns at linebacker, and Dexter enters his third year as a starter in the secondary. Cony comes into the season with a new system and a new quarterback after the graduation of Luke Duncklee, a firstteam all Pine Tree Conference Class A selection. Duncklee combined to rush and throw for more than 2,000 yards last season. “A lot will depend on our PLEASE SEE CLASS A 5

IMPACT PLAYER: Lawrence High School’s Shaun Carroll, center, celebrates with teammates after returning a punt 70 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter against Waterville Senior High School during the preseason. Carroll is one of the top kick returners in the state and will play a bigger role in the Bulldogs offense this fall.

DEFENSIVE PRESENCE: Messalonskee defender Sam Dexter (7) dives for an interception during a game against Cony High School last season. Dexter is a three-year starter in the Eagles defensive backfield and will take on more of an offensive role this fall.

Class A FROM 4 young kids,” Cony coach Robby Vachon said. “The league will be tough as always. We’ll start four sophomores in big roles.” One of them is 6foot-3 quarterback Ben Lucas, who will lead the team out of the pistol formation. “ We’ l l to have limit the turnovers,” V a c h o n said. “We are looking forward to competing for a playoff spot. We’re not just looking to be competitive.” Brothers Chase and Chandler Shostak will start at wide receiver, while junior Brandon St. Michel will start at tailback. Thon Ithipalakorn and Charlie Hallak will also carry the ball. Senior captain Phil Obert will start at left guard and will anchor the defense at linebacker. Skowhegan surrendered 292 points last season, the most in the conference, but with a year of

experience, coach Mike Marston thinks his team should be more prepared for the tough league. “We seem pretty balanced. The kids have worked hard in the offseason. I see it starting to show up on the field,” Marston said. The Indians’ defensive line is led by seniors Zach Witham, C.J. Kruse and Jacob Weese, while Alex and Baker Chad Carrol, back from a in year B o o t h b a y, are at linebacker. Tyler Savage and E t h a n Johnson are the top returning to players Skowhegan’s secondary. Johnson is back for his second season at quarterback. Savage is the top returning rusher in Skowhegan’s runheavy double wing offense. Sophomore Ben Sally joins Savage as a wingback, and Weese will play fullback. Center A.J. Dixon, guards Witham and Baker, and tight ends Kruse and Justin Grant return to the offensive line. “We played a lot of these kids last year,” Marston said. “The team attitude and chemistry seem pretty solid.”

Carey, Carroll and Leathers each return, as does Sementelli. Perry, Barnaby and Wade are the only returners to the offensive line, but Perry enters his third season at center. The Bulldogs gave up just 45 points in the regular season in 2010. The defense should be a strength again.

Messalonskee

Head coach: Wes Littlefield (9th season) Assistant coaches: Scott Colby (quarterbacks, secondary), Bill Getty (freshmen), Ken Nadeau, Colin Clifford. Last season: 5-4, lost in PTC A quarterfinals. Offensive leaders: TE Jake Fenlason (Sr., 5-11, 180), T Zach Dexter (So., 5-11, 245), G Jake Stinson (Jr., 5-10, 255), C Dustin Sherman (Jr., 5-10, 260), G Caleb Bean (So., 6-1, 200), T Ryan Fecteau (Jr., 6-3, 200), TE Gage Landry (Sr., 62, 185), QB Travis St. Pierre (Sr., 5-10, 165), WB Sam Dexter (Sr., 5-11, 165), WB Corey MacKenzie (So., 5-9, 160), WB Kyle Gleason (Sr., 5-9, 155), FB Cory Foye (Jr., 5-11, 165) Defensive leaders: DE Fecteau, DT Matt Seymour (Sr., 59, 225), NG Stinson, DT Jordan Carson (So., 6-1, 225), DE Corey Andrews (Jr., 5-8, 185), MLB Chris Delisle (Jr., 5-9, 185), OLB Gleason, OLB Foye, CB S.

Dexter, PR-KR MacKenzie Outlook: The Eagles lost Keenan Knox, the league’s leading rusher in 2010, to graduation, but Sam Dexter is a dangerous athlete who has big-play potential. MacKenzie and Foye saw some varsity time last season, and St. Pierre returns after spending last season at Kents Hill. Gleason is the top returning tackler, and Dexter is one of the top defensive backs in the PTC.

Head coach: Mike Marston (8th season) Assistant coaches: Chapin LaBelle (defensive ends, tight ends), B.J.

Savage ran for 379 yards and two touchdowns last season, while Johnson threw for 263 in his first year under center. Dixon, Witham, Kruse and Grant return to the line, and that should help the Indians gain yards with the run-heavy double wing offense. Witham made 31 tackles last season and returns to the defensive line.

Lippert (offense), Devin Saban (special teams), Ray Moinester (offensive, defensive lines), Chip Lucas (freshmen), Chris Turgeon (varsity assistant) Last season: 4-5, lost in PTC A quarterfinals Offensive leaders: WR Chase Shostak (Sr., 6-0, 175), QB Ben Lucas (So., 6-3, 195), WR Chandler Shostak (Jr., 6-0, 160), TE Wesley Benner (Jr., 6-0, 180), LT Steven Morse (Sr., 5-10, 255), LG Phil Obert (Sr., 6-0, 2450, FB Thon Ithipalakorn (Sr., 5-7, 160), TB Brandon St. Michel (Jr., 511, 175), TB Charlie Hallak (So., 6-0, 170), RB Matt Swan (Sr., 5-4, 150). Defensive leaders: NG Morse, DT Hunter Frost (Sr., 6-0, 240), LB Obert, CB Chandler Shostak, CB Chase Shostak, DT Eric Cook (Jr., 6-1, 190), DE Brendan Surette (Jr., 6-2, 185), LB Kyle Elvin (Jr., 6-1, 165), SS Ithipalakorn. Special teams: P, K Zack Lachance (Jr., 5-10, 180), PR St. Michel, KR Chase Shostak. Outlook: The Rams enter a new era after the graduation of all-conference quarterback Luke Duncklee, who rushed and threw for more than a combined 2,000 yards last season. Sophomore Ben Lucas takes over as quarterback. He’ll lead an offense that is transitioning from the spread to the pistol, which has the quarterback out of the shotgun as well. The Shostak brothers, Chandler and Chase, provide a strong one-two punch at wide receiver and Obert returns as the anchor of the defense.

Winthrop

Head coach: Joel Stoneton (8th year) Assistant coaches: Dave Setchell (running backs/defensive line), Erin Quimby (quarterbacks/defensive backs), Tyler Arsenault (wide receivers, defensive backs), Tavis Hasenfus (linebackers, running backs) Last season: 7-3, lost in Campbell Conference Class C semifinals Offensive leaders: T Chris Bowers (Sr., 6-2, 195), G Tyler Reeve (Sr., 6-2, 175), FB Robin Cook (Sr., 6-0, 210), T Matt Smith (5-11, 215), RB Dan Moody (Jr., 5-8, 160), RB Zach Glazer (So., 5-8, 160), QB Jared Hanson (So., 5-9, 135) Defensive leaders: DT Cook, DE Bowers, DE Reeve, DT Smith, OLB Moody, OLB Tyler Stockford Special teams: K Pat Ryan (Jr., 6-0, 150), PR Drew Stratton (So., 5-6, 130), PR Glazer Outlook: The Ramblers lost 16 starters to graduation and return just two starters on each side of the ball. However, four of the five returning seniors play on the offensive and defensive lines, giving the Ramblers some much-needed experience at key positions. Moody and Glazier will share the carries and Stoneton says new quarterback Hanson is developing nicely. Stoneton says the goal this year is to reach the playoffs, but it won’t come easy.

Winslow

Head coach: Mike Siviski (27th season) Assistant coaches: Jim Poulin (defensive coordinator, secondary, wide receivers), Pete Bolduc (offensive line, defensive ends), Kyle Gunzinger (defensive backs, running backs), Jim Haskell (linebackers, running backs), Andy Cyr (defensive line, offensive line, special teams) Last season: 2-6 in PTC B. Offensive leaders: WB Shane O’Connell (Sr., 5-10, 170), G V.J. Tantoco (Sr., 5-10, 175), G Eric Crawley (Sr., 5-11, 230), SE Cody Morrison (Sr., 6-4, 195), TB Joe Hopkins (Jr., 5-9, 170), QB Donald Camp (Jr., 5-7, 160), T Brock Deschaine (Jr., 6-1, 240), C Sean Cote (Jr., 5-10, 215), T Travis Veilleux (Sr., 5-11, 215), TE Owen Dutil (Jr., 5-9, 190), TB Byran Robbins (Sr., 5-9, 145), TB Dylan Hapworth (Fr., 5-8, 160) Defensive leaders: DB Hopkins, DB Camp, DB O’Connell, LB Crawley, DE Deschaine, LB Tantoco, DT Jon Farrell (Jr., 5-9, 190), DT Cote, DT Veilleux, MLB Zach Guptil (So., 5-11, 215), LB Hapworth, LB LB Mike Clark (So., 5-11, 190) Special teams: P Crawley, K Hapworth, KR Hopkins, KR Hapworth, KR Mike Joslyn (Sr., 5-9, 168) Outlook: After two decades as one of the top teams in Eastern B, the Black Raiders not only make the move to Class C, but to the Western Maine Campbell Conference. Twenty six players on Winslow’s roster are freshmen or sophomores. Hopkins is the leading returning rusher, and Camp saw some time at quarterback last season. Crawley and Tantoco are the most experienced linemen. Deschaine, Veilleux and Cote give the Black Raiders some size up front. This will be an adjustment year for Winslow, but the Black Raiders should be a playoff contender.

CAMPBELL CONFERENCE CLASS C

Maranacook

Coach: Joe Emery (3rd year) Assistant coaches: Larry Smith (junior varsity, defense), Lou Emery (quarterbacks), Dwight Whittier (special teams) Last season: 4-5, lost in Campbell Conference quarterfinals Offensive leaders: TB Luke Emery (Sr., 6-4, 210), QB Caleb Castonguay (Jr., 5-9, 175), T Chris Pettengill (Sr., 6-2, 300), TE Andrew LaChance (Jr., 6-1, 190), C Ian Palmer (Sr., 5-10, 220), WB Kyle Evans (Sr., 5-7, 150), G Dan Giguere (Sr., 5-11, 190), FB Eben Ballard (Sr., 5-10, 200). Defensive leaders: DE Emery, T Pettengill, LB LaChance, LB Palmer, CB Evans, DE Giguere, NG Ballard. Special teams: P Emery, PK Jesse Evans (Jr., 5-8, 150), K Palmer Outlook: Emery is one of the top tailbacks in the conference. He rushed for more than 1,000 yards last season and helped anchor a defense that ranked in the upper half of the league. Emery will be joined in the backfield by Evans and Ballard. Castonguay saw ample time last year and will take the handoffs from new center Palmer.

Oak Hill

Coach: Dave Wing (3rd year) Assistant coaches: Mike Haley (defense), Geoff Wright (defense line), Chad Stowell (defensive ends, tight ends) Last season: 5-5, lost in Campbell Conference Class C semifinals Offensive leaders: TB Cody Depuy (Sr., 5-10, 175), TB Joel Wells (Jr., 5-8, 145), OL Mike Saunders (Jr., 6-0, 235), T Zach Leeman (Sr., 5-10, 220), QB Parker Asselin (Jr., 6-0, 175), RB Jon Averill (Jr., 5-6, 150), RB Brandon Potvin (Jr., 5-8, 160), SE Aaron Clark (Jr., 5-9, 175), SE Anthony Karkos (Sr., 5-8, 165), RB Cody Collingwood (Jr., 6-0, 195), G Donnie Vannah (Jr., 5-5, 155), G Caleb Provost (Jr., 6-0, 195), T Richard Fillion (Jr., 6-3, 225) Defensive leaders: DB Averill, DB Wells, DB Asselin, LB Potvin, LB Karkos, DL Fillion, DL Leeman, DL Saunders, DL Provost, DL Vannah, Special teams: P Collingwood, KR Wells, PR Depuy Outlook: The Raiders have to replace talented running back Josh Allen, who rushed for more than 1,000 yards last season. While DePuy and Wells don’t possess the breakaway speed and power of Allen, they should help provide a more than formidable backfield. Asselin played in three games last season as quarterback. The Raiders feature some good size up front.

PINE TREE CONFERENCE CLASS B

Gardiner

Head coach: Matt Burgess (1st year) Assistant coaches: Mike Gammon (offense), Mike Hersom (secondary), Steve Lavallee (offense/defensive line), Charlie Lawrence (junior varsity), Keenan Blindow (freshmen) Last season: 8-3, lost in PTC B final Offensive leaders: RB Alonzo Connor (Sr., 6-0, 187), QB Dennis Meehan (Jr., 5-10, 191), SE Justin Lovely (Sr., 5-11, 155), TE Seth Wing (Jr., 5-10, 216), C Justin Pottle (Sr., 510, 203), T John Kelley (Sr., 6-1, 219), G Teddy Worthley (Sr., 5-11, 162), G Jory Vermillion (Jr., 6-0, 212), TE/SE Matt Hall (Sr., 6-2, 182), FB/TE Frank Chepke (Jr. 5-10, 168), Hunter Belanger (Jr., 6-0, 163) Defensive leaders: DL Donnell, ILB Worthley, ILB Wing, Lovely, CB Connor, S Hall, T Kelley, OLB Wyatt Thornton (Sr., 5-11, 199), DL Jacob Sergent (Sr., 5-4, 206) Special teams: K/P Meehan, PR Connor. Outlook: The Tigers feature a new head coach in Burgess, a 1987 Gardiner High graduate. He says the team will feature a more balanced offense, but don’t expect Connor to handle the ball less. Connor rushed for 2,032 yards and 31 touchdowns last season. He is one of the most explosive players in the state, and he’ll have good blockers in front of him again. Meehan takes over at quarterback after losing out on the position last season to Spencer Allen.

Madison

Head coach: Matt Friedman (3rd season) Assistant coaches: Scott Franzose (quarterbacks, defensive backs), Jim Easler (offensive and defensive lines), Bob Marandola (freshmen), Cory Bussell (freshmen) Last season: 1-7 in Campbell Conference C Offensive leaders: QB Stephen Cusson (Sr., 6-3, 180), WR Matt Sucy (Sr., 6-0, 190), G Travis Emerson (Jr., 5-11, 215), RB Stephen Day (Sr., 6-0, 180), G Ryan Malcom (Jr., 5-11, 215), T Marcus Berry (Jr., 5-11, 265), T Brenden Tolman (So., 6-1, 250) Defensive leaders: CB Cusson, S Sucy, MLB Emerson, OLB Day, DT Malcom, NG Berry, DT Tolman, CB Danny Moreshead (Jr., 5-9, 150), SS Kyle Williams (Sr., 6-1, 190) Special teams: KR-PR Moreshead Outlook: With Carrabec students now in their third season playing with the Bulldogs, Madison was moved up to PTC B this season. Coach Friedman tweaked the Bulldogs’ spread offense this season, streamlining the playbook and going to a more traditional spread format. Now in his second season running the offense, Cusson is getting more comfortable. Sucy and Day return as top offensive weapons, and Emerson moves from the backfield to guard to help shore up the line.

Mt. Blue

Head coach: Gary Parlin (19th season) Assistant coaches: Craig Collins (defensive coordinator), Peter Franchetti (offensive line), Brad Bishop (linebackers), Carl Dorman (junior varsity, running backs) Last season: 7-3, lost in PTC A semifinals. Offensive leaders: C Sean Moore (Sr., 5-10, 235), G Caleb Farrington (Sr., 6-1, 195), G Zach Faulkner (Sr., 5-8, 175), T Dustin Zamboni (Sr., 6-4, 210), T Eli Luker (Jr., 6-4, 245), TE Shawn Keach (Sr., 6-2, 220), TE Zak Kendall (Jr., 6-4, 275), WR Cam Sennick (Sr., 6-6, 195), WR Nick Hilton (Sr., 6-4, 175), WR Chris Malone (Sr., 5-6, 160), HB Izaiha Tracy (Sr., 5-7, 170), HB Eric Berry (Sr., 6-1, 175), QB Jordan Whitney (Jr., 6-1, 180) Defensive leaders: DT Keach, DT Zamboni, DE Luker, DE Kendall, LB Bradley Jackson (Jr., 6-1, 190), LB Chris Cautillo (Jr., 5-8, 195), LB Drew Blanchet (Sr., 5-5, 155), CB Sennick, CB Berry, FS Aaron Gagnon (Sr., 5-9, 145), DE Jamie Brooks (Sr., 6-3, 170), LB Malone, DT Nick Searles (Sr., 6-4, 295) Special teams: K-P Keach, KR-PR Tracy, Berry, Jackson Outlook: The Cougars enter PTC B with a team that should be an instant contender for the league title. Whitney threw for 899 yards and eight touchdowns last season, and one of his top targets, Sennick, is back. Tracy has recovered from a leg injury that cost him the second half of last season. Defensively, the Cougars have to rebuild the line from scratch, but return a strong secondary and linebacking corps.

Waterville

Head coach: Frank Knight (22nd season) Assistant coaches: Ken Lindlof (offensive coordinator), Dennis Martin (defensive coordinator), Chris Downing (special teams), Jon Hart (freshmen), Matt Gilley (strength and conditioning) Last season: 3-6, lost in PTC B quarterfinals. Offensive leaders: QB Aidan Fitzgerald (So., 5-9, 175), FB J.T. Whitten (Sr., 6-0, 215), HB Aaron Saucier (Sr., 6-1, 215), HB Evan Greatorex (So., 6-1, 175), HB Racean Wood (Jr., 6-0, 170), T Nick Margitza (Sr., 6-0, 280), G Mike Bailey (Sr., 5-11, 200), G Mike O’Neil (Sr., 5-9, 210), C-T Connor McLeod (Jr., 6-2, 275), OL Frank Knight (Sr., 6-1, 225), OL Harley Pendleton (Sr., 5-11, 210), TE Nick Danner (Jr., 5-10, 205), TE Duncan Works (So., 5-10, 175), T Tommy Cox (Jr., 6-1, 260), WR David Bailey (So., 5-9, 180) Defensive leaders: LB Whitten, S Saucier, DB Wood, NG Margitza, LB M. Bailey, DL O’Neil, DL Knight, DL Pendleton, DE Danner, DE Works, DT Cox, LB Luke Knight (So., 6-1, 210), DB D. Bailey. Special teams: P-K Whitten, KR Saucier, KR Wood Outlook: Getting back a pair of players who missed significant time last season with injuries will help a Waterville team hit hard by graduation. Margitza is back from a broken leg and hopes to fulfill the promise he showed as a two-way lineman before his injury. Saucier was hobbled by an ankle injury early in 2010 and was never 100 percent. Saucier, combined with Whitten and Wood, gives the Panthers the makings of a strong run game, and that will help sophomore quarterback Aidan Fitzgerald as he learns the position. Defensively, the Panthers are strong up the middle, with Margitza at nose guard, Whitten at linebacker and Saucier at safety.

LITTLE TEN CONFERENCE

Maine Central Institute

Head coach: Tom Bertrand (10th season) Assistant coaches: Eric Day (QBs, DBs), Lincoln Robinson (RBs, LBs), Bob Bussell (offensive and defensive line) Last season: 6-4, lost in LTC semifinals. Offensive leaders: QB Patrick Noonan (Jr., 5-10, 165), RB Dylan Mower (Sr., 5-8, 155), RB Adam Ogden (Sr., 5-10, 175), RB-WR Trey Vintinner (Sr., 6-1, 175), WR Zack Valente (Sr., 6-4, 180), WR Ethan Rumery (Jr., 5-10, 150), OL Jake McGowan (Sr., 6-2 250), OL Briar Bussell (So., 510, 235), OL Matt Thompson (Sr., 5-11, 240), WR Tanner Littlefield (So., 5-7, 145), Mitchell Hallee (Fr., 6-2, 190), OL Walter Reuter (Jr., 5-10, 210) Defensive leaders: LB Mower, LB Ogden, DB Vintinner, DB Valente, DB Rumery, LB McGowan, DL Bussell, DL Thompson, DB Littlefield, DE Hallee, DL Reuter. Special teams: KR Mower, KR Ogden, KR Vintinner Outlook: The Huskies graduated a number of players at key positions, and a few freshmen and sophomores are going to play significant roles. Among the top returning players is Vintinner, who is the Huskies’ leading returner in rushing and receiving yards, and Ogden. Noonan takes over at quarterback, while Mower, a transfer from Nokomis, should get some carries.

Nokomis

Head coach: Haggie Pratt (4th season) Assistant coaches: Don Thorndike (defensive coordinator), Buddy Kershner (running backs, defensive ends), Butch Wallace (quarterbacks, defensive backs) Last season: 0-8 in PTC B. Offensive leaders: WR Zack MacFarlane (So., 6-3, 175), TE Jake Winslow (So., 6-3, 225), T Caleb Vanedistine (Sr., 6-1, 260), G Matt Girroir (Sr., 5-10, 195), C Josh Philbrook (Jr., 5-9, 250), G Tucker Braley (Sr., 5-10, 180), T Bryce Monteyro (Jr., 5-8, 215), FB Devin Bussell (Jr., 6-3, 190), TB Drew Wing (Jr., 5-8, 160), TB Cody Pelletier (Sr., 5-6, 145), TB Austin Chipman (Sr., 5-10, 180), QB Nathan Michaud (Sr., 6-0, 155), WR Caleb Littlefield (Sr., 5-11, 185) Defensive leaders: DB Pelletier, DB Wing, S Michaud, S Chipman, LB Braley, LB Girroir, DT Monteyro, DT Vanedistine, NG Philbrook, DE MacFarlane, DE Rusty Wilson (So., 6-0, 170), DL Taylor Charters (Sr., 6-2, 205) Special teams: K Kansas Saving (Fr., 6-0, 180) Outlook: Football participation is growing at Nokomis, and that has helped the team’s depth. Pratt likes his team’s speed. Wing, Pelletier and Chipman return, along with Michaud at quarterback. Vanedistine anchors the line at right tackle. Defensively, the Warriors need to improve a unit that allowed 381 points last season, the most in Class B.

EVERGREEN LEAGUE

Mt. View

Head coach: Jack Brady (4th season) Assistant coaches: Matt Darres (offensive coordinator), Reid Woodbury (offensive and defensive lines) Last season: 1-7 in LTC. Offensive leaders: QB Jalen Babin (Sr., 6-0, 195), G Mike Robinson (Sr., 5-11, 230), TB Craig Nealley (Sr., 6-2, 190), C Ricky Moulton (Jr., 6-1, 220), G Andrew Gibbs (Sr., 6-2, 210), T Ben Kormann (Sr., 62, 230) Defensive leaders: DE Babin, ILB Robinson, LB Nealley, DE Gibbs, DT Kormann Special teams: P-K Taylor Reynolds (Sr., 6-2, 185) Outlook: With 14 seniors, this is the most experienced team in Brady’s tenure at Mt. View. Babin was primarily a running back last season, but saw time at quarterback when starter Aaron Santana was injured. Nealley is an athletic player who can be be used in the backfield or as a receiver. Moulton and Robinson return to the offensive line. Robinson will lead the defense from his spot at inside linebacker, and Kormann returns at defensive tackle.

Kents Hill

Head coach: Steve Gritti (3rd year) Coaches: Jim Smucker (defensive backs, wide receivers), Matt Moore (running backs, defensive line), Brian Smith (offensive line, linebackers) Last season: 3-5 Offensive leaders: QB Bret Kidik (Pg, 6-0, 185), WR Derek Trinh (Pg., 5-9, 180), C Kevin Smith (Sr., 6-0, 200), WR O’Shea Bell (Sr., 5-10, 180), OL Lukas Dow (Jr., 6-4, 240), OL Cam Dow (Sr., 6-5, 235), WR Andrew Kebalka (Jr., 5-11, 175) Defensive leaders: DE Smith, DB Bell, MLB Charles Andre-Minger (Sr., 6-4, 215), DL Lukas Dow, DL Cam Dow, DB Kebalka Special teams: K Alex Imadijean (Jr., 5-7, 150) Outlook: This year’s team will be drastically different, with more than half the roster turned over. Gritti said the Huskies will be a primarily throwing team. Kidik, of Danvers, Mass., will start at quarterback. O’Shea Bell, who is recovered from offseason shoulder surgery, and Derek Trinh, of Toronto, give the Huskies a talented duo at wide receiver.

New contenders join PTC B Mt. Blue joins perennial conference heavyweight Gardiner in hunt for title BY BILL STEWART AND TRAVIS LAZARCZYK Staff Writers

G

ardiner Area High School returns one of the most explosive players in the state, an experienced line and a few playmakers on the edge. The Tigers, led by tailback Alonzo Connor, reached the Pine Tree Conference Class B title game in each of the last two seasons, losing to Leavitt both times. The road back to the title game won’t be easy, thanks to an influx of new teams and a transition that almost always accompanies a new coach to the program. This season the PTC B will feature several new additions, including Mt. Blue, Brewer, Oceanside (the merged Rockland and Georges Valley) and the Madison-Carrabec co-operative team. Traditional power Winslow dropped to Class C. Mt. Blue won seven games and reached the semifinals of the PTC A playoffs last season. With almost all of the skill position players back from last season, the Cougars join the PTC B as instant contenders for the conference title. “In this league, there are only a couple people on your schedule who aren’t as good as (Class) A teams,” Mt. Blue coach Gary Parlin said. “The others, they can compete with anybody.” Junior quarterback Jordan Whitney, who threw for 899 yards and eight touchdowns last season, is back and fully recovered from a knee injury suffered early in the basketball season. “He had a good summer in the 7-on-7 league,” Parlin said. “He got better and better each week.” Whitney has a few big targets, led by 6-foot-6 senior Cam Sennick and 6-4 senior Nick Hilton. Sennick caught 25 passes for 332 yards and five touchdowns last season, and could also be used out of the backfield. Running backs Izaiha Tracy, who missed half of last season with a broken leg, and Eric Berry return, giving the Cougars depth in the backfield. There are a lot of new faces on the offensive line, led by center Sean Moore and tackle Dustin Zamboni. The Cougars have no starters back on the defensive line, although ends Chad Luker and

TOUGH TO STOP: Gardiner’s Alonzo Connor rushed for 2,032 yards and 31 touchdowns as a junior, leading the Tigers to their second straight berth in the Pine Tree Conference Class B title game. Zak Kendall had plenty of playing time last season. At linebacker, Bradley Jackson, Chris Cautillo and Drew Blanchet move into starting roles. “A lot of guys waited their turn,” Parlin said. The strength of Mt. Blue’s defense is the secondary, where Sennick and Berry return at corner, and Tracy and Aaron Gagnon are at safety. Gardiner is adjusting to life with a new head coach, Matt Burgess. “Last year they were a strong team, and I would think that we should make the playoffs this year,” Burgess said. “Alonzo Connor is a strong kid at tailback. I’d like to utilize some of the athletes we have in Matt Hall and Justin Lovely, too. A lot of things are the same language that the kids are used to. There are some things that are different. It’s a transition for them and for us.” Last season, Connor rushed for 2,032 yards and 31 touchdowns. He also rushed for a school record 346 yards on 27 carries in a Sept.

24 win over Mount Desert Island. “We definitely have the talent,” Connor said. “The talent is there and the depth is there. I’m hoping to have an even bigger year.” Dennis Meehan will start at quarterback for the Tigers, whom Burgess said will feature a more diverse offense this season. “A first-year quarterback is always a first-year quarterback,” Burgess said. Eddie Donnell, who is returning from a broken leg, returns to anchor the offensive and defensive lines. Connor also will play a big role defensively at cornerback. “Things are settling up pretty quickly,” Burgess said. After starting the 2010 season with three wins in the first four games, Waterville dropped its final five to finish 3-6. Some of that had to do with injuries to halfback Aaron Saucier, who was hobbled all season by a bad ankle, and tackle Nick Margitza, who suffered a horrific broken leg at Mt. Desert Island on Oct. 8. Both players are back and healthy this

season. “After Nick got hurt, we struggled because he’s our leader on the line,” Waterville head coach Frank Knight said. Guards Mike Bailey and Mike O’Neil return to the Purple Panthers’ line, and with Margitza, will block for Saucier, fullback J.T. Whitten and halfbacks Racean Wood and Evan Greatorex. Waterville lost a four-year starter at quarterback with the graduation of Kyle Bishop, and the job falls to sophomore Aidan Fitzgerald. “He’s savvy. He’s the starting catcher on the baseball team,” Knight said of Fitzgerald. “He’s used to seeing the big picture.” Defensively, the Panthers should be strong up the middle, with Margitza at nose guard, Whitten at linebacker, and Saucier at safety. Nokomis is starting to develop a little depth, and coach Haggie Pratt also sees a team that’s more focused on the fundamentals. “We look much better tackling. We’re a little more aggressive than we were last year,” Pratt said. The Warriors have returning starters at key positions, including offensive tackle Caleb Vanedistine and quarterback

Nathan Michaud. A trio of tailbacks, Drew Wing, Cody Pelletier and Austin Chipman, will see most of the carries, while sophomore tight end Jake Winslow could emerge as a pass catching threat. Linebackers Tucker Braley and Matt Girroir lead the Nokomis defense. Now in his third season as Madison’s head coach, Matt Friedman expects to see continued improvement, and is looking forward to the challenges moving up to Class B bring. “It’s a chance to develop new rivalries,” Friedman said. The Bulldogs have tweaked their spread offense a little, getting rid of the pistol formation in favor of a more traditional spread. They’ll also try and run the no huddle and try to speed the game up. Quarterback Stephen Cusson, receiver Matt Sucy and running back Stephen Day all return. Travis Emerson, a back last season, moved to guard to help improve the Bulldogs’ offensive line. Cusson and Sucy return to the secondary, while Ryan Malcom, Marcus Berry and Brandon Tolman will be on the defensive line.

Shakeup in Campbell Conference Former Class B power Winslow joins league BY TRAVIS LAZARCZYK AND BILL STEWART Staff Writers

T

Campbell he Conference has a new look this season. Longtime rivals Jay and Livermore Falls merged, took the name Spruce Mountain, and jumped up to Class B, along with the Madison-Carrabec combined team. Telstar of Bethel joined the league as a first-year program, and Winslow, one of the most successful programs in state history, moved from the East B to West C due to declining enrollment. Eastern Maine’s Little Ten Conference grew too, with the additions of Washington Academy and Hermon, but lost Rockland, which merged with Valley to form Georges Oceanside. As recently as 2007, Winslow was playing for the PTC B conference title. The Black Raiders are a much younger team now, with 26 of the 49 players on the roster either freshmen or sophomores. “It’s hard to say what’s going to happen,” Winslow head coach Mike Siviski said. “We’re looking for senior leadership from our captains and returning starters.” Captains Shane O’Connell (wingback), V.J. Tantoco (guard) and Eric Crawley (guard) are three of the upperclassmen Siviski is counting on to lead the offense. Junior Donald Camp saw some time at quarterback last season, and junior Joe Hopkins is the team’s leading returning runner. Crawley and Defensively, Tantoco are back at linebacker, while Camp, Hopkins and O’Connell return to the secondary. “We’re hoping to improve our depth as the season goes on and these younger players can become varsity players,” Siviski said. “The sooner, the better.” Winthrop is coming off a strong season in which it reached the Campbell Conference Western C semifinals. The Ramblers, who finished 8-3, started 6-0. Expectations are once again high this year, but the Ramblers will look a lot different. They graduated 16 starters and return just five seniors. “We’re starting over from scratch,” Winthrop coach Joel Stoneton said, “which is fine. In

Class C, when you lose 16 seniors, when they move on, you are depleted and you have to start over. We could get discouraged but we don’t expect to rebuild. We expect to be competitive. Every team from year to year is different. The mixture is different.” Dan Moody and Zach Glazier will get plenty of touches in the backfield while sophomore Jared Hanson takes over as starting quarterback. Winthrop will feature strong offensive and defensive lines. Tackles Chris Bowers, Robin Cook and Matt Smith, as well as guard Tyler Reeve — all seniors — anchor the lines. “We have quite a bit of talent, we have quite a bit of speed,” Stoneton said. “Our strength is on the line. Four of the five seniors coming back played varsity reps for me up front. We have battle experience. We’re kind of leaning on them and hoping the other guys come along.” Last season Maranacook finished 4-5 and reached the Campbell Conference quarterfinals. The Black Bears return Luke Emery, one of the top tailbacks in the conference, and quarterback Caleb Castonguay. Tight end Andrew Lachance and newcomer Eben Ballard should contribute as well. Coach Joe Emery said the Bears have much more speed this season, but are smaller up front. “Last year we wanted a home playoff game and we should’ve been there,” Joe Emery said. “We have set the bar. We have more speed this year and we’ll try to pass it more.” Added senior captain Ian Palmer, who plays center: “Our expectations are high. We made it to the playoffs last year and we want to go farther this year. We want to get off to a good start and set the pace for the rest of the season. I think we’ll be tough.” Luke Emery rushed for than 1,000 yards last season. “I am definitely going to go all out,” he said. “I want to be No. 1 in rushing.” Oak Hill reached the Campbell Conference semifinals last season a year after it made the quarterfinals.

graduated. Cody DePuy, a senior, and junior Joel Wells will take over at tailback. Junior Cody Collingwood will also see time in the backfield. Sophomore Parker Asselin will start at quarterback. He played three games last season and replaces the graduated Cam Morin. “I don’t think we have the Josh Allen breakaway back,” Oak Hill coach Dave Wing said. “Cody DePuy and Collingwood are good, strong runners but neither one of them are breakaway guys. But our strength is the offensive line. We have a lot of experience there and that bodes well for us.” Caleb Provost, Mike Saunders, Richard Fillion, Luke Washburn and Zach Leeman anchor the lines. Maine Central Institute reached the LTC semifinals for the first time since 2003 last season, but the Huskies lost a ton of talent to graduation. With a few players returning to key positions, and a talented group of underclassmen, head coach Tom Bertrand thinks his team will still contend for a playoff spot. “We’ll put some size on the field, but depth will be a problem, and experience,” Bertrand said. Adam Ogden and Trey Vintinner are the leading returning rushers for the Huskies, and Vintinner is a strong receiver, too. Junior Patrick Noonan takes over at quarterback. Seniors Jake McGowan and Matt Thompson bring experience to the offensive line. Ogden was one of the Huskies’

top tacklers at linebacker last season, and Vintinner returns at defensive back. Dylan Mower, a transfer from Nokomis, should help at running back and linebacker. Mt. View head coach Jack Brady has something he’s never had in his previous three seasons with the Mustangs: a veteran team. Brady has 14 seniors, and they’ve provided experience and leader-

ship. Jalen Babin played some quarterback last season, and moves into the job full-time. Tailback Craig Nealley is a threat to run or get involved with the passing game.

An impressive run should continue Skowhegan Indians seek 10th Class A title in 11 seasons BY MATT DIFILIPPO Staff Writer

T

his section of our fall preview usually beings by talking about Skowhegan. It will again this year. Skowhegan has won the Eastern A title the last 10 years, and has won nine state titles during that time. The Indians outscored their opponents by a staggering 92-3 last fall, and lost only two starters from that team.

2010 State Champions Class A: Skowhegan Class B: Nokomis Class C: NYA Seniors Mikayla Fitzmaurice, Nicole Sevey and Jessie Skillings are stars, as are players like Sarah Finnemore and Makaela Michonski. There are also other players like Haley Holt, Adrianna Martineau and Mikayla Toth who are obvious keys to Skowhegan’s success. “I think this is a really balanced group,” Skowhegan coach Paula Doughty said. “They’re one of the most interchangeable groups I’ve ever had. If someone’s not well today, I have two other kids who can play that position.” Messalonskee will challenge Skowhegan. The Eagles certainly played Skowhegan tough in three meetings last fall. That could be four meetings this year — the teams meet twice in the regular season for the first time since 2006 — but new coach Katie Gorham wants her players thinking more about field hockey than about Skowhegan. “We’re not talking about one individual team all year long,” Gorham said. “We’re only going to talk about that team at the practice before we play that team.” Senior goalie Lexy Cole and junior center midfielder Kristy Bernatchez each were named to the all-state team last season, and 10 other players return. Gorham says the players are quickly adjusting to her expectations. Cony relied a lot on goalie Asia Le last year, in part because of an inexperienced defense. The Rams have more experience in the midfield and backfield this season, and that will help new goalie Kevie Rodrigue.

REMEMBER THAT FEELING: Skowhegan won its ninth Class A state title in 10 years last season. The Indians have a solid roster returning and should make an run at another Class A crown.

Seniors Chelsea Begin and Nicole Rugan led Cony in scoring last season, and will lead the offense again this fall. But coach Holly Daigle feels there are players on the roster who can help with the scoring load. “In our attack, we have a lot of speed,” Daigle said. “There are a lot of girls who have that potential to have that role, too.” Lawrence is in the second group of teams in Eastern A after Skowhegan and Messalonskee. The Bulldogs won 10 games last year for their best season in many years, and return 10 players from that team, including co-captains Regan LaPorte, a midfielder, and Emily Lambert, a four-year starter in goal. The improvement last year was all over the field, as the Bulldogs scored 15 goals in the last four games of the regular season, played solid defense and worked together as a team. With the program moving in the right direction, it’s important for Lawrence to use that to its advantage this fall.

Class C Winthrop finished 12-4 last season and should contend again in Eastern C. The Ramblers are missing sophomore Allie Conant and junior Quahnah Cummings to injury, but there is good depth,

especially for a small school. “I’m really kind of optimistic,” Winthrop coach Sharon Coulton said. “Our defense is all back. We’ve got two strong goalies. My senior captains are backs. We have some goals to replace, but we have a nice crew of young forwards who are eager to score.” For now, Maine Central Institute is playing a Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B schedule and competing in Eastern C. So if the Huskies can pull off a couple big wins — plus reverse a couple losses last year they feel they should have won — they can make a strong run at the playoffs. The Huskies are balanced, but young enough that staying healthy is a must. Maranacook is another team that needs to stay healthy, but the Black Bears were hoping to add a few players and possibly play 7on-7 junior varsity games. Maranacook has only two seniors, but backs Natalie Ware and Miriah Vining give experience to the backfield in front of new goalie Bri Gotez. Coach Tanya Evans says everyone on the roster has improved their game. At Hall-Dale, the Bulldogs have only three seniors — Wendy Goldman, Haley Jaramillo and Ally Moran. With such a young team, coach Christen Lachapelle said much of the focus is on individual improvement.

“They’re learning to think for themselves (on the field), which is huge in athletics,” Lachapelle said. “I think I’ve made it clear

that I want everyone to step on the field and say that they can change the outcome of a game or the outcome of a play.”

CLASS B FIELD HOCKEY

11

As tough a test as there is Nokomis hopes to contend again in a tough Eastern Class B two seasons, but the Mustangs did lose a lot of players who contributed to that record. There are still several standouts, however. While Hayleigh Kein was one of the fastest fliers in the state, senior Anna Piotti is in the same league. Goalie Abbie Charrier is a good one, and forwards Mercedes Reynolds, Delainey Kein and Janelle Thornley all have experience. With 11 newcomers, coach Gloria Hewett is just trying to get everyone in sync. “That was one of the things that I think was a strength of my team last year was how they trusted each other — maybe because they played together so long,” Hewett said. Waterville is hoping to improve on last year’s 6-8 record. There are only five newcomers on the varsity, but one of them is Ally Forkey, who was a starting goalie the last two seasons at her high school in New York. “She holds the cage very well,” Waterville coach Amie Wilcox said. “She makes a lot of smart, careful decisions.” Returning players like Tatyana Schneider, Jenna Gagnon, Kayla Maheux, Jena Nawfel and Gabby Bridger are also key players for

okomis won the Class B state championship last season, but it wasn’t easy. The Warriors won their quarterfinal in overtime, their semifinal in double overtime and their regional final 1-0 by holding off a penalty corner as time ran out. This year, it won’t be easy for whoever wins, either. Eastern B is one of the toughest and deepest leagues in the state, and Nokomis is still among the top teams in the league. Nokomis lost 24 goals when Jordin McGinnis graduated, but Leah Edmondson and Marissa Shaw combined for 33 goals last fall. The biggest change is in goal, sophomore Kendra where Underhill replaces three-year starter Maria Adams. Underhill did see some action last season and fared well. “Kendra has been working hard all summer,” Nokomis coach Katie Thompson said. “She’s gone to camps, and she’s been going to the Friday night leagues all summer long. I think she’s really committed to getting better. It helps that we have such strong goalscorers for her to play against at practice. I think that goes handin-hand. Maria got better when we got better people shooting on her.” Winslow didn’t play state champion Nokomis last season, but showed it could play with anyone else on its schedule. The Black Raiders’ only weakness was that they sometimes had to play a little too much defense, but an improved midfield might help change that this fall. Coach Mary Beth Bourgoin raves about how well Allison LeClair and Jen Poulin play together in the midfield. The offense, led by Michelle Greene (19 goals last season), is also strong. So is the defense, with Syndey Crogan, Jordyn Dorval and Bethany Winkin all returning as key components. The goaltending will again be split between senior Abbi Lutz and junior Alexis Lachance. “If one of them rises to the challenge and becomes the more aggressive one, that person will get more time than the other,” Bourgoin said.

Waterville. Mt. Blue has managed to keep strong numbers despite winning two games in each of the previous two years. Well over 30 players tried out this fall, although the varsity roster will be sophomoreheavy. The Cougars will use Prescott Field at the University of Maine at Farmington as their home field, and are scheduled for only four home games this season. They also have to adjust to a new class and new opponents on their new field. “We’re definitely struggling against barriers this year,” Mt. Blue coach Jeannine Paradis said. “So it’s, OK, here’s another barrier. We’re just going to climb that wall and get over it, and deal.” Oak Hill and Erskine each hired new coaches who are hoping to gradually turn around struggling programs. Erskine’s coach is Skip Chadbourne, and the Eagles have one returning starter, Alyssa Curtis. Oak Hill’s coach is Chadbourne’s daughter, Brittany, and she’d like to stay and see the program achieve more success. “You don’t turn a program around in one season,” she said. “I don’t plan on going anywhere.”

ANOTHER SHOT: Marissa Shaw scored 16 goals and had 10 assists last season to help Nokomis win the Class B state championship. Gardiner was one of the favorites to win Eastern B each of the last two years. The Tigers won a state title in 2009 and lost in the semifinals last fall. This year, no one knows what to expect, because only midfielder Jenna Moore and forwards Olivia Reny and Ellen Kelley are returning varsity players. As it is, 11 of the 15 players on the roster are freshmen or sophomores.

“We are so young,” Gardiner coach Moe McNally joked, “that instead of tissues, we’ve got baby wipes and pull-ups.” So McNally has stressed fundamentals, and she does have a strong record in taking young players and making them better. So there’s a chance Gardiner could be much improved over the second half of the season. Mt. View is 26-5-1 over the last

2010 State Champions Class Class Class Class

A: Bangor B: Yarmouth C: Fort Kent D: Bangor Christian

That may not make it easier in the competitive Class A division of the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference where everyone is counting on a shot at the playoffs. This year, the league is divided into three five-team divisions — north, central and south — with each team playing division opponents twice and picking up a few non-division games to round out the schedule. In the Class B division, Camden Hills is the preseason favorite, although Maranacook is always strong and Winslow could also contend. In addition to Lewiston, Hampden and Bangor, there are a half dozen teams looking to contend in KVAC A. Here in central Maine, Messalonskee, Waterville, Mt. Blue, Lawrence and Erskine all return strong teams. Messalonskee got hot last season, making a late season run into the tournament. The Eagles are ready to start hot this season. Four-year starter Chris Hall should be a key player, leading the defense, which includes goalie Zach Sutherland. Wyatt Omsberg leads the attack, along with Nate DelGiudice and Ryan Erskine. “We return a lot from last year when we finished the season playing our best soccer,” Messalonskee coach Tom Sheridan said. “We have some holes to fill, but we have talented kids to fill them.” Erskine coach Phil Hubbard likes what he saw in a preseason round robin in which his team went 4-0-1 and outscored the

He’s joined by nine other returnees including midfielder Tom Grady and forward/goalie Ryan Pulver. Lawrence also returns a strong core from its starting group of last season, including midfielders Matt Saunders and Drew Bois. “We certainly have the firepower,” Lawrence coach Bob Towne said. “I think we will find out early just where we are.” Mt. Blue features a solid passing game led by Colton Hall and Blake Hart. Goalkeeper Matt Crowley and midfielder Sam Richardson return to anchor the defense. Waterville is struggling with injuries in the preseason, but has goalie Max Brown back, along with Jake French and Callum Thomas. The Panthers will rely on a number of young players this season. Dillon Clark takes over as coach

at Skowhegan after a successful career as a player at the University of Maine at Farmington. The Indians are looking to snap a 14game winless skid. Cony looks to rebuild under first-year coach Jon Millett. Dufour, Connor Midfielder defender Kyle Stifkin and forward Luke Dang are the leading returnees. Maranacook graduated 14 players from last season’s 15-win team but the Black Bears have looked strong in preseason. They return six players led by John Varney, Zach Elwell and goalie Sam Nielson. Oak Hill has a standout player in midfielder Jamiel Kidd but not a lot of depth for first-year coach Chris Albert while Gardiner returns nine seniors led by midfielder Aaron Toman and Jeff McAuslin and striker Jake Palmer. Mt. View likewise returns nine seniors and will contend for a tournament berth while Carrabec/Madison, MCI and Nokomis will all work on recovering from struggling seasons last year.

Bobcats, Bulldogs come back strong Returning players give teams a chance to contend for titles BY GARY HAWKINS Staff Writer and DAVE MCLAUGHLIN Correspondent

W

ith several returning playboth ers, Richmond and Hall-Dale have their sights set on postseason success this fall. Last year, Richmond won its sixth straight Western Maine Class D championship during a socalled rebuilding year while HallDale won 10 games and earned a Class C playoff berth. Richmond upset Greenville in the Western Maine final to reach the state championship where it lost 5-2 to Bangor Christian. The Bobcats sustained some key graduation losses but do return 14 players from that team. They should be especially strong on defense, led by center back Kade Strout and goalkeeper Tyler Harrington. There’s strength in the midfield, too, with Ben Carver, Randy Moody and Brian Snedeker returning. Up front, senior Peter Lorbeski scored 15 goals last year while Nate Tribbett showed well as a freshman last fall. The schedule is a competitive one that includes Class C powers Waynflete and Sacopee Valley,

and with 10 sophomores on the team, the Bobcats likely won’t coast through the season. “We’re young,” Richmond coach Joe Scribellito said. “My goal is to play into November. We’ve been pretty successful getting there.” Richmond opens at Greenville against a Lakers team that lost a lot to graduation but is usually strong. “Our goal has been to get ourselves ready and hopefully click by playoff time,” Scribellito said. “I think we’ve got a pretty good chance to do something special.” Hall-Dale has a new coach in Andy Haskell, who has previously coached at Hebron Academy and Thomas College. He’s familiar with his team and cautiously optimistic. “We had a good preseason,” Haskell said. “We’ve had a couple of good scrimmages against quality teams.” The Bulldogs return 15 players, most of whom saw significant playing time last season. There are five seniors on the team — Ben Crocker, Kevin Zembroski, Brad Shepherd, Austin Bechard and Tyler French — all of whom are key contributors. Crocker and Zembroski are both scorers and will get some help from Colin Lush, one of 10 talented juniors on the team. The

Bulldogs also have two goalies in Zach McNaughton and Sam Shepherd, each of whom can play in the field. The Mountain Valley Conference has returned to one division this fall and each team will play everyone else once. St. Dominic and Hall-Dale will be among the teams to beat while Wiscasset and Lisbon will also be strong. Monmouth appears ready to turn the corner after going 5-8-1 last season. With just four returning seniors on the team, the Mustangs are still young but they return some good players, Kyle including sophomore Fletcher, who led the team with

17 goals last season. Coach Joe Fletcher is counting upon some of those seniors, notably Nick Trenholm and Cam Copeland, to take some of the scoring load off his son. “Our goal is to make the playoffs,” Fletcher said. “They’ve played more soccer this year than they have in their lives. That should pay dividends.” Mt. Abram has shown growth in the preseason and could make a statement in the MVC. Goalkeeper Josh Beedy is one of the best in the league and forward Alex Lopez has skills. Caulin Logan, Parker Kennedy and Nick Carlton give the Mustangs

experience up the middle. Winthrop returns some experience in seniors Mitch Guerette, Connor Doyle and goalie Cameron MacMillan, and picked up another strong player in transfer Pat Ryan. But the Ramblers lack depth and that will hurt. “Every year we put together a team that battles,” Winthrop coach Greg Ruby said. “The key is can we battle for 80 minutes, instead of 65.” Valley has opted to run a co-ed team this season, The boys and girls recorded winless marks last season and the numbers have been rapidly falling.

Panthers still a contender in KVAC A Waterville strong despite graduation of all-time leading scorer BY GARY HAWKINS Staff Writer and DAVE MCLAUGHLIN Correspondent

W

a t e r v i l l e remains one of the teams to beat in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference although it may never find a scorer to replace the recently graduated Jordan Pellerin, who is now playing at the University of Maine.

2010 State Champions Class Class Class Class

A: B: C: D:

Scarborough Falmouth Sacopee Richmond

During Pellerin’s four years at Waterville, she scored a school record 171 goals and the Purple Panthers went 61-6-3, winning a Class A state title in 2009. They still return enough to contend for one of the top spots in the KVAC, as does Mt. Blue. In Class B, Camden Hills, Winslow, Gardiner and Nokomis are each expected to make a run at the top spot in the KVAC. “We are going to make young

mistakes,” Waterville coach Ian Wilson said. “Our defense and midfield are strong, it will take awhile to find our scoring, especially after graduating Jordan, who was the key to our offense the past two seasons.” Seniors Lauren Massey and Abbie Webster lead the defense, while Hannah Jabar anchors the midfield. A host of underclassmen will get plenty of playing time early. “We are bigger and more athletic than we have been,” Wilson said. “Our older players need to provide the leadership.” Mt. Blue is fast and talented, led by seniors Mackenzie Hobbs, Emily Ramsey, Rachel Karno and Marina West, along with junior Mackenzie Conlogue. “We have been working well together,” Mt. Blue coach Fred Conlogue said. “Attacking should be our strength. Our forwards play great defense (but) our defense overall needs to get better.” Both Erskine and Cony are playoff contenders. Erskine squeaked into the playoffs with a couple of key wins late in the season, but that shouldn’t be the case this year. The Eagles return 14 players, including a pair of excellent midfielders in Meryl Bond and Amy Phillips. Those two, along with Bridget Humphrey and Raechale Sage, should give the

STILL IN THE HUNT: Abbie Webster is one of the veterans returning to a talented Waterville Senior High School girls soccer team which lost all-time leading scorer Jordan Pellerin to graduation. Eagles some scoring punch. “That was our issue last year,” Erskine coach Ryan Nored said. “I would be disappointed if we didn’t make the tournament this year.” Jeff Hersey, who coached the junior varsity last year, takes over as head coach at Cony. The Rams return 11 players, including midfielder Mia Diplock and defenders Katrina Duncan and Olivia Deeves. They also picked up an excellent athlete in state pole vault champion Lindsey Folsom. They return some scoring punch in Josie Lee and Becca Fowler and an aggressive goalie in Melanie Guzman. Messalonskee and Skowhegan both have new coaches. Scott Curtis will guide the Eagles while Steve Bodge takes over for the Indians. Both teams are ready to take the next step in the league. Lawrence started to make a move last season but fell short of the playoffs. The Bulldogs have shown they have excellent speed

and quickness and return plenty of experience this season, especially in the sophomore and junior class. Gardiner and Winslow each made the Eastern Class B tournament last year and should repeat. Gardiner is an aggressive, physical team led by junior midfielder Kylee Granholm and sophomore forward/goalie Ally Day. Brittany Carver and Ashley Taylor will be counted upon to score along with Day. “We do have some weapons,” Gardiner coach Chad Kirk said. “We’re not very deep off the bench.” Shawn Carey takes over as the head coach at Winslow, which has been a dominant program in Eastern B. The Black Raiders return plenty of talent, beginning with senior goalie Elizabeth Ferry, who had 68 saves last season. Junior Alliyah Veilleux, meanwhile, has scored 31 goals in her first two seasons at Winslow. Mt. View also has a new coach

in David Page, who will try to turn around a struggling Mustangs program. Nokomis returns 10 starters after finishing 8-6-0 and missing the playoffs. The Warriors will try to avoid early season losses, led by seniors Megan Perry and Emilee Reynolds. Maranacook and Oak Hill each reached the Western Class B tournament last season. Maranacook returns five players from last season’s 7-6-1 team for first-year coach Mike Morin. The Black Bears have a lot of versatility in their lineup, led by Hannah Cumler and Katie Poulin and Kristina Kelly returns in goal. Oak Hill also has a new coach in Camire and, like Nicole Maranacook, the Raiders return a group of skilled veterans led by midfielders Marrissa Caskin and Amanda Bloss. Senior Darby Beaulieu, along with juniors Gabby Green and Julie Moreault are the team’s scorers.

Richmond takes shot at repeat Bobcats have plenty of talent returning in quest for another title BY GARY HAWKINS Staff Writer and DAVE MCLAUGHLIN Correspondent

W

ith six state titles under his belt, Richmond coach Troy Kendrick has learned not to get too high or too low during the preseason. But with 17 players, including eight starters, returning from last season’s Class D state championship team, it’s tough not to get excited. “If we can keep focused, it’s a talented group,” Kendrick said. “If you can bring back eight starters it’s always a good thing.” Among those returning starters is senior striker Danica Hurley, who was named Class D player of the year last season. Hurley scored 28 goals last season including the game-winner in last fall’s state title game against Van Buren. There’s plenty of scoring talent around her, too. Juniors Noell Acord and Sadie Goss scored 17 and 14 goals, respectively, last season while there are a number of talented midfielders who can score as well. “We’ve got to sort some things out defensively,” Kendrick said. “I’ve got some kids who can put

the ball in the net.” The defensive situation isn’t as bad as it sounds. Senior Lindsy Hoopingarner returns for her fourth year in goal while Katie Webster and Bri Snedeker also are back on defense. Senior Leandra Martin will also figure into the mix. She hasn’t played since her freshman year because of ACL injuries to both knees the past two seasons. The Bobcats have beefed up their competition with perennial power Waynflete and defending Class C state champion Sacopee Valley on the schedule. Hall-Dale has the talent to make a run at the Mountain Valley Conference this year while Madison should also contend. Hall-Dale returns its top three scorers in Carylanne Wolfington, Kristina Buck and Maura Stottler. The Bulldogs also return defender Jana Parsons, who was away last season on an exchange program. Junior Megan Cope will play in goal. Hall-Dale coach Guy Cousins is a little cautious because his team only has four seniors, but all of them can play, led by Wolfington who is an adept passer and scorer at center mid. “We’ve only got four seniors and seven freshmen. It’s about trying to give them as much expe-

rience as possible,” Cousins said. Cousins expects some of those freshmen to contribute, especially on offense where he’ll rotate some into the front line to complement Buck. “They’ve got good speed,” Cousins said. Cousins expects St. Dominic and Dirigo to contend for the MVC title and will get a good test in the season opener at Madison. Madison has two excellent scorers in senior Nathalie Michaud, who had 13 goals last season and Carrabec transfer Melissa White. The Bulldogs also

have a top-notch midfielder in Sam McLaughlin. “I feel like we have standout players all over the field,” firstyear coach Mike Herrick said. “We should be able to counter what other teams try to throw at us.” Monmouth came on strong last season at 7-5-2 and expects to make a run at a tournament berth. The Mustangs return 11 players, many of those on defense, but should be wellrounded. There’s also depth up front with the return of seniors Lauren Beaudoin and Chelsea Arsenault, junior Danielle

Bumann and sophomore Kylie Kemp. “I’m not going to have as much depth as I thought, but we’ll do well. We’ll score goals,” Monmouth coach Gary Trafton said. Mt. Abram has talent in the backfield, but has yet to find a scorer. Emily Eames anchors the midfield, while Lyndsay Beane and Elise Luce are solid defenders. Carrabec will continue to build on the foundation started last season when it played a stronger defense and proved it could stay with the tough teams in the MVC.

GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Jon Bolduc (2nd season) Last season: 3-10-1 Top returners: Chelsea White (Sr.), Jocelyn Jackson (Sr.), Leah Poirier (Jr.), Ashlee Knight (Jr.) Key newcomers: Chyanne Williams (Fr.), Nikayla Abruzzese (Fr.), Kylie Nile (Fr.), Leaonna Dunphy (Fr.), Tyler Riley (Fr.) Outlook: Carrabec will be building a new foundation this season with a strong turnout of sophomores and juniors to bolster the returning seniors. Teamwork has been a key ingredient during the preseason as the Cobras look to gain momentum heading into the playoffs. Coach’s comment: “I am looking to improve steadily as the season goes on and our goal is to reach the playoffs. We are very motivated and are looking forward to building strong team bonds as the year progresses.”

BOYS SOCCER Coach: P.J. Vicneire (1st season) Last season: 2-12-0 Top returners: Hunter Williams (Jr.), Charlie Landry (Sr.), Israel Davis (Sr.), Colby Tranten (Sr.), Darren Sheridan (Jr.), Brandon LeHay (Jr.), Nate Knox (Jr.), Nick Bowman (Jr.), Troy Dunphy (So.), Anthony Toneatti (So.). Key newcomers: None at this time. Outlook: Madison/Carrabec has enough talent returning to make a run at the tournament. It should be successful in the Mountain Valley Conference, but plays in Western B in the playoffs, which will be tough. Coach’s comment: “Team is working hard in preseason and are gearing up with scrimmages while looking forward to the season.”

CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Dan Foss (3rd year) Last season: Did not score as a team Top returners: Cameron Abruzzese (Jr.), Katie King (Jr.), Elliot Gore (So.), Key newcomers: Not available at press time Outlook: Last fall, Abruzzese finished 36th in the MVC boys championship (20:53), while King was 37th in the girls race (30:54). Coach’s comment: Unavailable at press time

GOLF Coach: Mike Soule (8th season) Last season: 5-5 Home course: Natanis Golf Course Top returners: Simon Rollins (Sr.), Shyler Scates (Sr.), Josh Bailey (Jr.), Shawn Soucie (Jr.), Josh Horak (Jr.), Ashley Chubbuck (So.), Jamye Marcellino (So.), Jesse Stacey (So.) Key newcomers: Tyler Dailey (Fr.), Trevor Brown (Fr.), Cameron Grass (Fr.) Outlook: The Eagles have experience, with a number of three- and four-year players on the roster. They have put in work in the offseason and should be improved. Rollins, Scates and Bailey are all shooting in the low 40s. Coach’s comment: “This is the most experienced team I’ve ever had. I have a senior with four years of experience and a couple of juniors with three years of experience. They’ve seen the courses, they are very familiar with Natanis and they can think their way around the course.”

Coach: Phil Hubbard (8th season) Last season: 8-5-1 in Class A East Top returners: D Darrell St. Jean (Sr.), MF Tom Grady (Sr.), F/G Ryan Pulver (Sr.), MF Sean Cabaniss (Sr.). MF Adam Michaud (Sr.), MF Nick Kothman (Sr.), D Stephen Atwood (Sr.), D Derek Smith (Sr.), MF Cameron Reed (Jr.), MF Dane Pelletier (Jr.), MF Tyler Adams (Jr.). Key newcomers: D Chris Harris (Sr.), D Cody Davis (Sr.), MF Damon Bailey (Sr.), MF Scottie Pilsbury (Jr.), D Nick Gayer (Jr.), D Jeff Pulver (Jr.), MF John Suga (Jr.), F Devin Duncan (Jr.), G Jared Gartley (Jr.). Outlook: The Eagles have a couple of holes to fill but overall return a strong group of players who should contend for a tournament berth. St. Jean plays stopper and is one of the leading defenders in the conference, but he can also score. The rest of the returning players are strong and experienced. Pulver may play some in goal but he’s also a valuable offensive player. Coach’s comment: “This group’s been very close since their freshman year. They’re very cohesive as a group.”

GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Ryan Nored (5th season) Last season: 4-7-3 in Class A East Top returners: D Beth Bernhardt (Sr.), D Shannon Blanchard (Sr.), MF Meryl Bond (Sr.), D Raven Carlezon (Sr.), D Nicole Glidden (Sr.), MF Amy Phillips (Sr.), MF Taylor Chase (Sr.), F Raechale Sage (Sr.), D Sierra Tjelmeland (Sr.), F Hannah Peabody (Sr.), K Abby Peabody (Sr.), D Courtney Bonsant (Jr.), MF Baylee Doughty (Jr.), F Bridget Humphrey (Jr). Key newcomers: G Hattie Welch (Sr.), MF Alyssa Gartley (Jr.), MF Kelly McCormack (Jr.), MF Hannah Bridges (So.) Outlook: The Eagles came on strong late last year and squeaked into the tournament with some key victories. With 14 letterwinners returning, they should build on that. Bond and Phillips give the Eagles a strong midfield and both can score along with Humphrey. Welch, who is 6-foot-1, takes over in goal. Coach’s comment: “I would be disappointed if we didn’t make the tournament. This year, I’m looking to not squeak in. I’ve got a lot of talent.”

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY

Coach: Scott Minzy (3rd season) Last season: 4th in KVAC B, 5th in Eastern B, 11th in Class B Top returners: Spencer Gray (Sr.); Tom Ferguson (Sr.); Brenden Wood (Sr.); Erik Dodge (So.); Frank Markle (So.); Will Robertson (Jr.); Robbie Fasano (Sr.). Key newcomers: Adam Bovie (Fr.); Zach Childs (So.). Outlook: Eben Hodgkins, who won the KVAC B title last fall, is not running this fall, but Wood is a formidable runner who gives the Eagles a solid foundation. Erskine moves up to Class A this fall. Coach’s comment: “We are in Class A this year and it’s a whole new ballgame. It’s hard to assess where we are going to be at the end of the season. We ran throughout the summer, they’re ready to go.”

Coach: Dianna Fredrikson (10th season) Last season: 7th in KVAC B, 12th in Eastern B Top returners: Marissa Bovie (Sr.); Allison Fortin (Sr.); Grace Killian (Jr.); Meagan Sturgis (So.); Marissa White (So.); Lexie Wright (So.). Key newcomers: Michaela Fortin (Sr.); Moriah Cloutier (So.); Olivia Burke (So.); Jennifer Breault (So.); Kassidy Frost (Fr.). Outlook: Bovie is the Eagles top returning runner and could lead Erskine to an improved performance. Erskine has smaller numbers this season, but the roster is deeper. Coach’s comment: “Our team is very healthy this year. Each athlete has worked through the summer to maintain and they are now ready to get to work. Marissa Bovie and Marissa White look outstanding this season. Allison Fortin looks equally as strong. Newcomer Michaela Fortin is a very strong athlete and should be a real contender this season.”

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Shawn Totman (7th season) Last season: 5th in KVAC A, 5th in Eastern A, 11th in Class A Top returners: Connor Dufour (Sr.); Chris Slonina (Sr.); Dylan Cheever (Sr.); Sam Birch (Jr.); Lane Pelletier (Jr.); Andrew Carron (Sr.); Tyler Quirion (Sr.). Key newcomers: Brandon Benson (Sr.); Julian Hubbard (Sr.); Riley Hopkins (So.); Mikal Federici (So.); Patrick Hassen (So.); Luke Duchart (Fr.); Brandon Emerson (Fr.); Nick Dumas (Fr.). Outlook: The Rams lost Will Lundquist (6th in KVAC A meet) and Alex Smith (7th in KVAC A meet). Still, the experience of qualifying in the Class A state meet last season should pay off. Carron and Dufour are the Rams lead runners heading into the season. Coach’s comment: “We don’t have that elite runner but we have some depth that we haven’t seen in a while. Add in a mix of high quality new kids with our experienced runners and we have the ingredients for a pretty talented team.”

Coach: Holly Daigle (2nd season) Last season: 9-6, lost in Eastern B quarterfinals Top returners: F/M Nicole Rugan (Sr.), F Alyssa Brochu (Sr.), M/B Kaitlyn Labbe (Sr.), F/M Kiersten Bumford (Sr.), M Michelle Bolduc (Sr.), B Megan Garand (Sr.), F Chelsea Begin (Sr.), B Erika Burns (Sr.), M Heather Leet (Sr.), M/F Jenna Harwood (Jr.) Key newcomers: F Desiree Chabot (Sr.), B Lauren Quintal (Sr.), G Kevie Rodrigue (Jr.), M/B Sonja Morse (Jr.), F Molly Daniel (Jr.), M/B Katie Carroll (So.), M Abby Naborowsky (So.), F Arika Brochu (Fr.) Outlook: The Rams are a solid team that happens to play in a league with two powerhouses in Skowhegan and Messalonskee. There are 38 players in the program and 18 on the varsity. Coach’s comment: “We have a lot of veteran players coming back. With that mixed in with some of the new talent on the roster, (the goal) is just defining roles and working as one unit. A lot of girls just came in with that focus.”

BOYS SOCCER Coach: Jon Millett (1st season) Last season: 0-13-1 in Class A East Top returners: MF Connor Dufour (Sr.), D Kyle Stifkin (Sr.), D Tucker Simmons (Sr.), D Garrett Raymond (Sr.), MF Ean Roulliard (Jr.), F Luke Dang (Jr.), D Nick Tyler (Sr.) Key newcomers: MF Nick Dubord (Fr.), MF Peter Ackerman (So.), D Ian Simard (So.), D Nate Silsby (So.), D Brandon Thompson (So.), G Brandon Elwell (So.), F Chris Paradis (Jr.), F Michael Luber (Jr.) Outlook: The Rams haven’t had much success the past couple of years but Millett hopes to turn the program around through hard work and teamwork. Dufour, Dang and Stifkin are the leading returning players but will need some help from the other returnees as well as the newcomers. Coach’s comment: “Our main goal this season is to work on playing together as a team. If we can accomplish that we’re going to do a lot this year.”

GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Jeff Hersey (1st season) Last season: 5-7-2 in Class A East Top returners: MF Mia Diplock (Sr.), D Katrina Duncan (Sr.), F Becca Fowler (Sr.), G Melanie Guzman (Sr.), MF Kaite Perry (Jr.), D Olivia Deeves (So.), F Josie Lee (Sr.), D Alexia Dostie (So.). MF Emily Quirion (So.), F Hayley Quirion (So.), MF Lindsey Quirion (So.) Key newcomers: MF Mackenze Stevens (Sr.), F Lindsey Folsom (Jr.), D Melissa Peterson (Jr.), MF Christine Waller (Jr.), D Alyssah Dennett (So.), MF Bayleigh Logan (So.), F Sara Smith (So.) Outlook: The Rams are strong up the middle, beginning with Guzman in goal along with Deeves and Duncan on defense. Diplock is an excellent distributor at midfield while Cony returns scorers in Lee and Fowler. Folsom, a state pole vault champ, joins the team and gives it another hard-nosed, driven athlete. Coach’s comment: “I’m liking this group. They’re very, very aggressive, they want to be an attacking team. Offensively is where our strength lies.”

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Shawn Totman (7th season) Last season: 5th in KVAC A, 8th in Eastern A Top returners: Jade McGuire (Sr.); Erin Bolduc (Jr.); Elizabeth Dang (Jr.). Key newcomers: Renee Dugal (Sr.); Courtney King (Fr.). Outlook: A young Cony team will continue to rebuild this season led by Bolduc, who finished 13th at the KVAC A meet last season. The addition of Dugal and King gives the Rams solid building blocks for the future. Coach’s comment: “Our girls have shown a strong work ethic so far. If their commitment to improvement continues I see no reason for this team not to have one of the better years the Cony girls have had in quite a while.”

VOLLEYBALL GOLF Coach: Tim Folsom (15th season) Last season: 6-4 Top returners: Tyler Leet (Jr.), Zack Gagne (So.), Ryan Edwards (Sr.) Key newcomers: Ben Leet (Fr.), Thomas Foster (Fr.) Outlook: The Rams lost some talented players from last season. Tyler Leet will likely start the year at No. 1 and Ben Leet should contribute right away. Edwards is the only senior on the roster. Coach’s comment: “I think this year will be a learning experience. We’ll improve as the year goes on and hopefully peak before the KVAC final.”

Coach: Danielle O’Brien (3rd season) Last season: Missed tournament Top returners: Bethany Elwell (Sr.), Julie Arbour (Sr.), Alli Chase (Sr.), Abby Wormell (So.), Molly Russell (Jr.), Key newcomers: Morgan Neill (So.), Emily Russell (Fr.), Maggie Russell (So.), Leyna Tobey (Jr.). Outlook: The Rams will miss Allyssa Marson and Crystal Clark, their two big hitters who graduated, but there are good players coming up through the program. Elwell is the team’s setter and one of five returning players. Wormell, Chase and Molly Russell are the team’s three big hitters. The schedule is a tough one, loaded with experienced teams from southern Maine. Coach’s comment: “We have strong players coming from the JV level in the middle and outside hitting spots.”

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY DIRECT DIAL SPORTS

Coach: Matt Colvin (13th season) Last season: Not enough runners to score as a team Top returners: Meryl Kus (Sr.); Annie Schide (Sr.). Key newcomers: Kelsey Barrett (Fr.); Sophia Oliveri (Fr.). Outlook: Schide improved throughout the season last fall and finished 14th at the KVAC B meet. Kus, the team captain, has battled hamstring injuries in the past. Colvin is pleased with youngsters Barrett and Oliveri. Coach’s comment: “I’m still struggling to find a fifth runner to enable the team to be able to score at meets.”

FIELD HOCKEY Coach: Moe McNally (33rd season) Last season: 10-4-1, lost in Eastern B semifinals Top returners: M Jenna Moore (Sr.), F Olivia Reny (Sr.), F Ellen Kelley (So.) Key newcomers: F Brooke Davis (Jr.), F Courtney Moulton (Jr.), M LeeAnne Greenleaf (So.), M Nicole Chadwick (So.), B Abby Dunn (So.), B Camden Cone (So.), G Emalee Couture (So.), B Abby Dyer (Fr.), B Ellie Luken (Fr.), F Madeline Reny (Fr.), G Olivia Philbrook (Fr.), M Emily Michaud (Fr.) Outlook: For the first time in years, McNally went back to basics in preseason. There are a bunch of new players, along with new practices, new pregame warm-ups and even new uniform tops. Of the returners, Kelley and Olivia Reny can find the cage and Moore has looked good in her move from center back to center midfielder. Coach’s comment: “This is one of the hardest-working groups I’ve ever had. They’ve worked their tails off. This is a great group to work with. I’m having a lot of fun.”

GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Chad Kirk (2nd season) Last season: 10-3-1 in Class B East Top returners: MF Kylee Granholm (Jr.), D Beth Day (Sr.), F/D Ashley Taylor (Sr.), F Maria Turner (Sr.), MF Hannah Fossett (Jr.), F/D Brittany Carver (Jr.), D Cassie Staires (Jr.), F/G Ally Day (So.), G Madison Cutler (So.), MF Katie Owen (So.), MF Erin Slade (So.) Key newcomers: F/D Emma Hickey (Fr.), F Morgan Carver (Fr.). Outlook: The Tigers have developed into a perennial playoff contender and this season should be more of the same. They didn’t allow a goal in five preseason round-robin games and defense should be their strength this season. Kirk is still working out the goalie situation but has two good candidates in Cutler and Ally Day. Granholm returns to anchor a strong midfield while Carver and Taylor will be counted upon to score goals. Coach’s comment: “We’re physical, that’s who we are. 50/50 balls, they don’t lose them.”

BOYS SOCCER Coach: K.C. Johnson (13th season) Last season: 2-11-1 in Class B East Top returners: MF Aaron Toman (Sr.), MF Jeff McAuslin (Sr.), F Jake Palmer (Sr.), D Cody St. Amand (Sr.), D Bryant Whitley (Sr.), MF Cody Whitcomb (Sr.), D Jordan Brown (Sr.), D Zac Abram (Sr.), D Andrew Slade (Sr.), Keegan Smith (Jr.), G Ben Dickey (Jr.), MF Daniel DelGallo (Jr.) Key newcomers: MF/F Johnny Armstrong (So.), D Bobby Rose (So.), D Trevor Quirion (So.) Outlook: Led by a strong group of seniors, the Tigers should be improved this season. Palmer developed into a go-to scorer last season while McAuslin and Toman are experienced midfielders. Johnson likes what he’s seen of Dickey so far in goal. Coach’s comment: “We’ll be strong if we cut down on our mistakes. Those kids all saw a lot of time last year as juniors and sophomores.”

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Matt Colvin (13th season) Last season: 10th in KVAC B, 12th in Western B Top returners: Bradley McCollett (Sr.), Mike Tarrio (Sr.), Christian Heath (Jr.), Zack Woodard (Jr.), Josh Mashke (So.), James Bradley (So.). Key newcomers: Mike Caliandro (Sr.), Hongtau Wu (Sr.), Sam Temple (Jr.), Sam Driscoll (So.). Outlook: Gardiner has three quality runners in Heath, McCollett and Tarrio. The question will be who will fill the two other scoring slots. Colvin thinks Woodard has come a long way and will contribute for Gardiner. Coach’s comment: “I actually have a little depth this year for the boys. We look to move up from last year and it might be our best year yet for the boys if we can stay injury-free and develop.”

GOLF Coach: Karl Swenson (3rd season) Last season: 5-5 Home course: The Meadows Top returners: Brandon Chaput (Sr.), Nate Somes (Jr.), Tucker Dubay (Jr.), Zach Chaput (So.), Matt Clark (So.), Nik Berglund (Jr.), Andrew Treworgy (Jr.), P.J. Richmond (Jr.), Logan Hallett (So.) Key newcomers: Cody Hickey (Sr.), Austin Moore (Jr.) Outlook: The Tigers only lost one player from their top five last season and hope to improve on a .500 record. Coach’s comment: “We had a reasonably good season last year and I expect at least a similar record with the five guys I have coming back.”

Coach: Will Rhem (2nd season) Last season: 12-4-1, MAISAD champion Top returners: MF Reid Blouin (Sr.), MF Abu Mannocchi (Jr.), F Hoo Soo Kim (Jr.), D Dylan Rich (Sr.), D Will Hoffman (Sr.), D Ben Spencer (Sr.), F Mark Dufour (Jr.) Key newcomers: Not available Outlook: The Huskies returned a talented group from last seaons’s MAISAD championshp team led by midfielders Blouin and Mannocchi. They also return forwards Dufour and Kim along with a trio of returning defenders. There are holes to fill, though, and developing depth will be a key to the team’s success. Coach’s comment: “We may not score as many goals or be as technical as we were last year, but we will have a better understanding of the system and be a more cohesive group.”

GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Steve Bell (1st season) Last season: Won MAISAD championship Top returners: G Michaela Faia (Sr.), D Lauren Farnsworth (Sr.), D Sarah Dufour (Sr.), MF Natalie Duplisea (Sr.), MF Caroline Tortorella (Jr.), MF Danielle Bougeois (Jr.), MF Samantha Larrabee (So.), MF/F Sarah Vogel (Sr.) Key newcomers: Not available Outlook: Bell returns to coach this season after a one-year absence. The strength of the team lies in its defense, led by Faia in goal, Farnsworth and Dufour. The private prep school never knows who they’re getting until school begins. Last year Janie O’Halloran showed up and set a school goal-scoring record with 28. Coach’s comment: Not available at press time

Key newcomers: Not available Outlook: McMahon is still getting to know her players, as preseason doesn’t end until almost mid-September. She’s a recent graduate of Harvard University. Coach’s comment: “Throughout high school and college, there are things my coaches have stressed, like hustle and leadership. Those are so key. You can learn a lot. It’s not just all skill. It’s taking things beyond that.”

GOLF Coach: Steve Stortz (5th season) Last season: 2-5-1 Home course: Belgrade Lakes GC Top returners: Justin Ortlip (Sr.), Xander Shaw (Sr.), Sam Hall (Jr.), Ben Bowers (Jr.), Isaac Filderman (So.) Key newcomers: Chris McKee (Sr.) Outlook: The Huskies return five golfers from a year ago, including Hall, who was a captain last season. Ortlip has a big drive, hitting the ball nearly 300 yards, according to his coach. McKee returns to golf after playing soccer last season. Coach’s comment: “This year’s team looks to improve on a 2-5-1 record from last year. We have a core of five returning players and will anticipate the other three slots to be filled by walk-ons during tryouts.”

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Christian Poulin (3rd year) Last season: Not enough runners to score as a team. Top returners: None Key newcomers: Emma Wilson (Fr.); Olivia Welch (So.); Anna Harrigan (So.); Krissy Price (Fr.). Outlook: The Bulldogs have four new runners this season. Poulin has been impressed by their work ethic in the preseason. Coach’s comment: “I’ve been trying to get the word out that we are looking for another runner. The freshman Wilson is a tough, talented and hard-working athlete who should see some good individual results this season.”

Coach: Christian Poulin (3rd year) Last season: 6th in MVC, 9th in Western C Top returners: Harry Cheung (Jr.); Michael Woods (Jr.), Austin Gardner (Jr.), Matt Plourde (Jr.); Taran Wilson (Sr.); Alex McPherson (So.), Steven Hubert (So.). Key newcomers: Tucker Bond (Jr.); Chris Pomerleau (Fr.); Luke Armentrout (Fr.); Sam Day (Fr.); Thomas Plourde (Fr.). Outlook: Poulin likes the depth and experience on his roster. Cheung finished 16th at the MVC meet last season and is joined by fellow juniors Gardner, Plourde and Woods on a team that hopes to improve on a sixth-place finish at the conference meet. Coach’s comment: “Juniors Bond and Ringer should both run in the top six for the team. Freshman Pomerleau is very motivated and trained in a summer track program, and senior Wilson and sophomores McPherson and Hubert stand to make great gains over their PRs last year.”

FIELD HOCKEY Coach: Christen Lachapelle (3rd season) Last season: 4-10-1, lost in Eastern C quarterfinals Top returners: M Wendy Goldman (Sr.), F/B Haley Jaramillo (Sr.), F Ally Moran (Sr.), UT Heidi Towle (Jr.), B Courtney Pierce (Jr.), G Hannah Perry (Jr.), B Shanay Gilbert (Jr.), F Alexa Moran (So.), M Liz Benner (So.) Key newcomers: B Emily Loiselle (Jr.), F Erin Gamache (So.), B/F Brooke Berberich (So.), F Nicole Pelletier (Fr.), M/F Kate Sullivan (Fr.), B Amber Bell (Fr.), F Greta Thiele (Fr.), G Molly French (Fr.) Outlook: The Bulldogs have only 17 players, but as Lachapelle pointed out, low numbers are a problem at almost every school. Hall-Dale has more freshmen than seniors, but Lachapelle likes how hungry her players are to start the season. Coach’s comment: “We’re a young team, but we’re very eager to prove that we belong on the field.”

BOYS SOCCER Coach: Andy Haskell (1st season) Last season: 10-4-0 in Class C West Top returners: D Brad Shepherd (Sr.), D Tyler French (Sr.), F Kevin Zembroski (Sr.), D Austin Bechard (Sr.), F Ben Crocker (Sr.), D Nick Sinclair (Jr.), MF Tyler Fitzgerald (Jr.), F Kurt Thiele (Jr.), G/F Sam Shepherd (Jr.), MF Ezra Jones (Jr.), G/F Zack McNaugthon (Jr.), MF Josh Ringer (Jr.), F Colin Lush (Jr.), MF Spencer Shagouryu (Jr.), MF Zach Plummer (Jr.). Key newcomers: D Stephen Longfellow (So.), D Konnor Longfellow (So.), G/D Brian Allen (Fr.), F Nat Crocker (Fr.). Outlook: The Bulldogs return 16 players from a team that won 10 regular-season games last season and should be one of the top clubs in the Mountain Valley Conference. They’re deep at every position, including goalie and will be strong at both ends of the field. Last year, they worked very well together and will only improve in that area given added size, strength and experience. Haskell takes over after having coached at Hebron Academy and Thomas College. Coach’s comment: “We’ve got a good balance of experience, talent and veteran leadership.”

GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Guy Cousins (10th season) Last season: 8-6-0 in Class C West Top returners: MF Shyanne Bellavance (Sr.), F Kristina Buck (Sr.), MF Paley Sweet (Sr.), MF Carylanne Wolfington (Sr.), D/G Megan Cope (Jr.), MF Shelby McGibney (Jr.), MF Erin Bellew (So.), D Alison Crockett (So.), D Emily Maynard (So.)., F Maura Stottler (So.)

Outlook: The Bulldogs return their top three scorers in Wolfington, Buck and Stottler, led by Wolfington with 16 goals and eight assists. Cope steps into goal with a strong defense in front of her led by the return of Parsons, who was an exchange student last year. Coach’s comment: “We’ve only got four seniors and seven freshmen. It’s about trying to give them as much experience as possible.”

Key newcomers: B Jen Griffin (Sr.), M Mary LeClair (Jr.), F Bethany Rioux (Jr.), F Kaprice Dahms (Fr.), F Julia Lawrence (Fr.), M Taylor Watson (Fr.) Outlook: The Bulldogs doubled their win total from 2009 to 2010 and should remain a quality team in Eastern A. The PAL program means players are entering the program with experience, and with nine seniors, Larrabee said she’s seeing a strong understanding of the game from her players. Coach’s comment: “It’s hard not to be excited. They’re just such good kids.”

JOINING THE TEAM: Lawrence’s Erzsie Nagy should make an immediate impact for the Bulldogs this season.

Coach: Michael Hinckley-Gordon (2nd season) Last season: 5-7-2 Top returners: M Myrilla Hartkopf (Jr.), M Lindsay Morris (Jr.), D Hannah Sheperd (Sr.), D Katie Dudley (Jr.), D Ali Tozier (Jr.), M Michaela Hickley-Gordon (So.), M Samantha Mestieri (So.), F Ahlin Sungsuwan (So.), D Mindy Rowell (Sr.), D Jenna Moody (Sr.). Key newcomers: Faith Forsythe, Marissa Paquette. Outlook: The Bulldogs have a high number of returning starters who will provide leadership. The Bulldogs’ speed and quickness will make them tough to defend. Coach’s comment: “I expect us to improve from last season and hopefully make the playoffs.”

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Sandor Nagy (1st season) Last season: 8th in KVAC Class A Top returners: Elizabeth Walsh (Sr.), Casandra Moreau (Sr.), Hannah Chavis (Sr.), Julia Pershken (Jr.), Sarah Fuller (Sr.), Jennifer Grolimund (Sr.), Elayna Byron (Sr.), Elizabeth Salisbury (Jr.). Key newcomer: Katie Arthurs (Sr.), Erzsebet Nagy (Jr.). Outlook: Fuller and Heald are the Bulldogs top runners this season, while Erzsebet Nagy is coming off a stellar outdoor track season. Coach’s comment: “I just want to make sure the kids have a good time. We have more than enough runners to score as a team.”

BOYS SOCCER Coach: Bob Towne (11th season) Last season: 5-8-1 Top returners: F Tim Dudley (Sr.), F Matt Saunders (Jr.), M Drew Bois (Jr.), M Zach Blomerth (Jr.), M Max Kenney (Sr.), D Sawyer Letourneau (Jr.), D Miles Smith (Sr.), D Alex Scott (Sr.), D Brad MacKenzie (Sr.) Key newcomers: GK Zach Alley (So.), M Zach Ricker (Sr.), F Robbie Paddack (So.), M James Collins (So.), D Thad Chamberlain (Sr.), D Nick Blomerth (Fr.), M Nick Chamberlain (So.), M Jacob Blodgett Cummings (So.), M Nick Murray (Jr.), F Jordan Duffy (Fr.), M Zak French (Sr.) Outlook: The Bulldogs have a strong group of starters returning and hope to improve on last season. Lawrence is led by senior captains Dudley, Scott and Kenney. Strong play in the midfield by Boisand and Blomerth will help control the flow of the game, while forwards Saunders and Dudley should be difficult to defend. Coach’s comment: “The team has been together for only a short time but the team chemistry is obvious. This is a great group of kids who want to learn and improve. If the team works as a collective unit focusing on ball possession, attacking, and defending as a team we will be successful.”

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Tim Alberts (9th season) Last season: 10th in KVAC A, 10th in Eastern A Top returners: Ian Klane (Sr.), Jesse Pomeroy (Jr.). Key newcomer: Ben Blaisdell (Fr.) Outlook: The challenge for the Lawrence boys this fall will be to find runners who can replace graduated seniors like Jimmie Perhsken (13th in KVAC Class A) and Michael Zebiak. Alberts is confident that Klane will improve. Pomeroy, who is a racewalker in outdoor track, is new to the sport and is using this fall to get ready for both the indoor and outdoor track season. Coach’s comment: “At this point, we’ll go with what we have for numbers. I’ll just be focusing on individual development. That’s kind of where we have to go.”

GOLF Coach: John Donato (11th season) Last season: 3-6 Home course: Clinton CC Top returners: Aaron Brown (So.), Nick Noiles (Jr.), Tyler Boudreau (Jr.), Jordan Nutting (Jr.), Keith Chesley (Sr.), Issaiah Fleming (Sr.), Nick Rousselle (Jr.) Key newcomers: Kelsie Dessent (Fr.), Seth Sales (Sr.), Zachary Hale (So.), Aidan Baker (Fr.), Spencer Folsom (Fr.), Maxx Cobb (Fr.), Derek Waugh (Fr.), Outlook: The Bulldogs return five of their top six scorers from a year ago, leading to high expectations this fall. Brown opens the season at No. 1 while Noiles will play No. 2. Boudreau, Nutting and Chesley should all score well, too. Newcomer Dessent should also provide a huge lift, as well. She won the Maine Junior Amateur Championship in the Girls 14 and Under division. Coach’s comment: “This is probably my best golf team in a long time. The future looks good. We have many starters back. Our goal is to be .500.”

Key newcomer: Ashley Bown (Fr.); Bronte Elias (Fr.); Sarah Poulin (Fr.); Courtney Edgerly (Jr.). Outlook: Hagopian takes over for his father, who coached the team for 20 years. He hopes to build the team into an MVC contender. McClintock is the top runner and finished sixth at the MVC championshps last season. Elias and Poulin have shown promise as freshmen after strong junior high careers. Coach’s comment: “(McClintock) knows she can be better. She is starting to step out of her brother’s (Matt) shadow. She has improved her form and I expect her to at least get top five at MVCs.”

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY

Cross country and golf schedules were unavailable at press time Staff photo by Joe Phelan

MADISON QUARTERBACK STEPHEN CUSSON returns under center this season as the Bulldogs move up to Class B and will try to improve on their 1-7 record.

GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Mike Herrick (1st season) Last season: 7-6-1, lost in Western C prelims Top returners: F Nathalie Michaud (Sr.), M Sam McLaughlin (Sr.), D Lyndsay Weese (Sr.), D/M Kianna Libby (Jr.), D Kayla Booker (Jr.) D/M Erika Parker (Jr.), M Courtney Taylor (Jr) M Kirstin Wood (So.) G Savanna Kandiko (So.), M Cristie Vicneire (So.), D Alex Jarvais (So.), F Whitney Lloyd (So.) Key newcomers: F Melissa White (Sr.), M Monica Ouellette (Fr.), M/D Madison Curtis (Fr.) Outlook: Madison returns most of its starting 11, including several players who played big minutes as freshmen. Coach’s comments: “We should be competitive on day one. The girls have shown me that they are willing to accept my coaching input and strategies. They had a taste of the playoffs last year and I think we can build from that. I look forward to their growth.”

BOYS SOCCER Coach: P.J. Vicneire (1st season) Last season: 2-12-0 Top returners: Hunter Williams (Jr.), Charlie Landry (Sr.), Israel Davis (Sr.), Colby Tranten (Sr.), Darren Sheridan (Jr.), Brandon LeHay (Jr.), Nate Knox (Jr.), Nick Bowman (Jr.), Troy Dunphy (So.), Anthony Toneatti (So.). Key newcomers: None at this time. Outlook: Madison/Carrabec has enough talent returning to make a run at the tournament. It should be successful in the Mountain Valley Conference, but plays in Western B in the playoffs, which will be tough. Coach’s comment: “Team is working hard in preseason and are gearing up with scrimmages while looking forward to the season.”

Coach: Brandon Hagopian (1st season) Last season: Not enough runners to score as a team Top returners: Matt McClintock (Sr.); Alex Helderman (Sr.); Ross Sirois (So.); Edward Brown (So.). Key newcomers: Tim Beaulier (Fr.); Brandon Davis (Fr.); Cody Emery (Fr.); Samuel Harper (Fr.); Tristen Rich (Fr.); Ron Helderman (So); Steve Lawrence (Jr.). Outlook: McClintock is the defending state champion and will battle Boothbay’s Chase Brown for MVC dominance again this season. The Bulldogs have a few more runners to score. Coach’s comment: “McClintock looks stronger and faster than he did last year. I can see he’s filling out and becoming a more powerful runner. I expect him to be in the mid-15’s, which only a few runners in Maine have ever done.”

GOLF Coach: Heath Cowan (6th season) Last season: Did not field a team Home course: Lakewood GC Top returners: Seth Sweet (Sr.), Levi Richardson (Jr.) Key newcomers: Hunter Smith (So.), Jarod Miller (Fr.), Tripp Libby (Fr.), Ty Cowan (Fr.)

Outlook: The Bulldogs feature one of the state’s top junior golfers in Sweet, who won the Class C individual title last season. He is joined by a strong top four, which should put the Bulldogs in contention in the MVC. Coach’s comment: “With Seth anchoring the lineup we’ll be pretty good. The other guys, Levi is coming around good and the three freshmen have been playing a lot.”

Coach: Nancy Hughes (4th season) Last season: 4-9 in Eastern B Top returners: F Michaela George (Sr.), M Taylor Wright (Sr.), G Sarah Bennett (Sr.), M Katelyn Sousa (Jr.), F Carolyn Newhouse (Jr.), B Victoria Drake (Jr.), B Sarah Lagross (Jr.), F Paige Larochelle (So.), B Paige Topel (So.) Key newcomers: M Haley Tibbetts (So.), B Katie Hughes (Fr.), F Katie George (Fr.), M Cassie Miller (Fr.), M/B Heidi Duncombe (Fr.) Outlook: Coach Hughes is impressed with the freshman class, pointing out they’ve played a lot of field hockey in the past. Some of them may have to play both varsity and JV games so the Huskies can play a JV schedule. Bennett appears to have recovered from ACL surgery and looks strong in the cage. Coach’s comment: “This is a group that gets along well together. They understand that they have a common purpose. They’ve all bought in to what we’re trying to do.”

MCI GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Jessica Cardenas (3rd season) Last season: Not enough runners to score as a team Top returner: Megan Orchard (Sr.) Key newcomers: Abigail Bergdoll (Fr.); Amie Walton (So.) Outlook: MCI will host its first meet in its three-year existence Sept. 23. Orchard looks to be healthy after an injury filled season. Bergdoll has potential, according to Cardenas, and Walton continues to improve. Coach’s comment: “There’s a good possibility that when the dorm students and the freshmen arrive, we’ll recruit a few runners and possibly have enough to score as a team.”

MCI BOYS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Jessica Cardenas (3rd season) Last season: 12th in KVAC Class B Top returners: Samuel Gachagua (Sr.), Tyler Nobel (Jr.), Allen Li (Sr.), Nick Deng (Sr.), Blade Guo (Sr.). Key newcomers: Gary Kersbergen (Sr.); Nevin Goewey (Jr.). Outlook: Gachagua is coming off a solid track season and is likely the Huskies’ top runner. Nobel has shown improvement in the preseason and MCI has added some depth. Coach’s comment: “I’m going to have five strong, solid runners which should allow us to move up in the KVACs.”

MCI GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Felipe Arias (10th season) Last season: 1-11-2 Top returners: MF Paula Arias (Sr.), D Alana Oliver (Sr.), D Natasha Wallace (Sr.), M Allison Sinclair (Sr.), F Ashley Kitchin (Sr.), M Hillary Maloon (Sr.), D Katie Cronkite (Jr.), D Molly Raye (Jr.), D Shantel Lousier (Jr.), M Chimene Goewey (So.), M Brianna Losee (So.), M Hannah Wardwell (So), F Kartissa Ballard (So.), F Hannah Emery (So.) Key newcomers: Erin Donahue, Victoria Cunningham, Ashley Alton, Rheine Lawn, Laura Johnson, Jessica Courtney, Silvia Guzman. Outlook: MCI gave several teams tough games last season and with a number of seniors returning, could be improved. Coach’s comment: “This is a very disciplined and hard-working group. These two elements plus a strong commitment for excellence will be key to a successful year. I expect a season that will be marked by the team’s dedication and best effort.”

MCI BOYS SOCCER Coach: Scott Giallombardo (4th season) Last season: 3-11-0 Top returners: D BJ Philbrick (Jr.), F Cameron Michaud (Jr.), M Chris Bourdeau (Jr.), G Matt Lessard (Jr.). Key newcomers: G Shane Hathaway (So.) Outlook: The Huskies’ youth, athleticism and determination could lead to their success this season. MCI lost a number of players to graduation and will look to gain experience this season. Coach’s comment: “We lost 10 seniors to graduation, but have a solid group of freshmen who will begin to fill their shoes during the season. They are eager and determined to prove themselves and add to the success of MCI soccer.”

MCI GOLF Coach: Paul Greco (8th season) Last season: 3-7 Home course: J.W. Parks Top returners: Dillon Watrous (So.), Kale McCarthy (Jr.), Cameron Neal (Sr.), Garth Stockwell (Sr.), Trevor Kitchin (So.) Key newcomers: Gavin Dugas (Fr.) Outlook: The Huskies are young, but have some talented golfers out. Among them is Dugas, one of the top junior golfers in the state and the son of J.W. Parks golf pro Mike Dugas. Coach’s comment: “We are young. I have two seniors that will be my five and six men and my top four are underclassmen.”

MESSALONSKEE BOYS SOCCER Coach: Tom Sheridan (5th season) Last season: 8-7-1, lost to Brunswick in semifinals Top returners: B Chris Hall (Sr.), F Nate DelGuidice (Sr.), G Zach Sutherland (Sr.), M Billy Blake (Sr.), M Wyatt Omsberg (So.), M Ryan Erskine (So.), M Jarrod Simpson (Jr.), M Kevin McCarthy (Jr.). Key newcomers: F Kyle Holmsen (Jr.), F Aiden Caulkins (Jr.). Outlook: Messalonskee returns a number of quality starters from last season, beginning with Hall, a four-year starter, on defense. Hall will lead a very deep and experienced unit in back. Omsberg will provide plenty of punch on attack using his vision on the field to make his teammates better. Coach’s comment: “The team is ready for another great year and we are looking to make a run deep into the playoffs.”

MESSALONSKEE GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Scott K. Curtis (1st season) Last season: 5-9 Top returners: M Sammy Mathieu (Sr.), M Sidney Shackett (Jr.), M Anna Heath (Sr.), GK Shawna Oliver (So.), D Jane Van Der Kerr (Sr.), F Sara Grenier (So.), MF Chloe Elliot (Sr.), M Alexis Lane (Sr.), M Allie Fischang (Jr.), M Necole Harrison (Jr.), D Andrea Eschenbrenner (Sr.), D/MF Amanda Knight (So.), D Kaylee Bates (Jr.), D Becca Hunsinger (So.). Key newcomers: F/MF Kassadi McPherson (Fr.), MF Colby McPherson (Fr.), MF Ally Lagassey (Fr.), D Calla Balboni (Fr.), MF/D Jess Charrier (Fr.). Outlook: The Eagles have a mix of seniors and younger players who could carry them to a strong season. The midfield is experienced and the Eagles can dominate with their quickness. Coaches comment: “A very strongly committed group of student-athletes playing an advanced game of soccer with each player challenging themselves on and off the field will take us along the road to success.”

MESSALONSKEE GOLF Coach: Jim Kerschner (16th season) Last season: 10-2 Home course: Belgrade Lakes Top returners: Justin Rollins (Jr.), Taylor Clark (Jr.), Derek Guerrette (Jr.) Key newcomers: Billy French (Fr.), Cody Simpson (So.) Outlook: The Eagles do not have a senior on their roster and lost a number of players over the last few years. Rollins, Clark and Guerrette were all starters last season. Belgrade Lakes is a nice home-course advantage. Coach’s comment: “For some reason we’ve missed that one class and seniors make a big difference in any athletic endeavor. Missing that class will makes us really struggle at the beginning of the season and get better as the year progresses.”

Friday, September 2, 2011

BLOCKING OUT: Messalonskee’s Kristy Bernatchez, left, blocks Brunswick’s Lillian Kjellman during their Eastern A quarterfinal game last season in Oakland. No. 2 Messalonskee scored four unanswered goals in the second half to beat No. 7 Brunswick 7-1. Bernatchez returns to the midfield to help the Eagles improve on their 14-3 record.

Coach: Katie Gorham (1st season) Last season: 14-3, lost in Eastern A final Top returners: B Katie Bernatchez (Sr.), M Haley Pelletier (Sr.), F Mara Balboni (Sr.), B Jess Boghosian (Sr.), G Lexy Cole (Sr.), M Kristy Bernatchez (Jr.), F Lynnae Luettich (Jr.), F Emily York (Jr.), B Bri Garland (Jr.), SW Natalie Hunt (Jr.), M Kylee Knight (So.), M Mikayla Turner (So.) Key newcomers: B Jen Coulombe (Jr.), F Syndey Gagne (So.), G Abby Roberts (So.), F/M Kassi Michaud (Fr.), F Brooke Quirion (Fr.), M Kristy Prelgovisk (Fr.) Outlook: Even though seven seniors graduated, the Eagles are a definite contender in Eastern A. They have a top-notch defense led by Boghosian, Cole and Katie Bernatchez. Gorham was an assistant and junior varsity coach in Messalonskee in 2008-09 and also coached many of these girls on the school’s lacrosse team this spring. Coach’s comment: “I think right now this team’s greatest strength is they work together very well.”

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY

Coach: Sara Rushton (1st season) Last season: 9th in KVAC A, 9th in Eastern A Top returners: Cam Dick (Sr.); Thomas Frasca (Sr.); Harlow Ladd (Sr.); Nate Paradis (Sr.); Riley Wentworth (Sr.); Brady Snowden (So.); Emmitt Heath (So.); Kyle Howard (So.). Key newcomers: Aldo Servillo (Sr.); Nick Hart (Sr.); Daeghan Elkins (Fr.); Logan Moses (So.); Devin Campbell (Jr.); Jacob Smith (So.); Thomas Luce (Fr.). Outlook: Perhaps the most improved runner in the area last season, Ladd looks to build on that success and compete for a state title. He won the Eastern Class A title by nearly 10 seconds with a time of 16:31. He is working this year to ensure that he doesn’t peak too early in the season and has the proper energy left to improve on his disappointing eighth-place finish at the Class A championships. Dick and Hart will have to contribute for the Eagles to succeed as a team. Coach’s comment: “My goal is to coach and encourage so that each athlete develops to reach their full potential and to continue the transition to getting Messalonskee to be a strong team within the region.”

Coach: Sara Rushton (1st season) Last season: 4th in KVAC A, 5th in Eastern A, 13th in Class A Top returners: Rebecca Luce (Sr.); Liz Young (Sr.); Lawryn White (Sr.); Holly Wentworth (So.); Nikki Collier (Jr.); Taylor Turcotte (Jr.); Holly Wentworth (So.). Key newcomers: Amber Sutherland (Fr.). Outlook: Rushton takes over a team that has reached the state championship twice. Collier finished seventh at the KVAC A meet last fall. Luce, White and Young will be counted on for scoring depth, as the Eagles return six of their seven runners from last season. Sutherland has looked strong in the preseason. Coach’s comment: “The Messalonskee administration is very supportive of their coaching staff and athletes. The individuals are bonding well to become a very cohesive team. This is being developed by the strong senior leaders.”

Coach: Don Beckwith (9th season) Last season: 13-0-1 in Class B West Top returners: F John Varney (Sr.), D Zach Elwell (Jr.), G Sam Nielson (Jr.), D Nick Lacasse (So.), MF Taylor Wilbur (So.), MF Andrew Pouliun (Jr.), Key newcomers: Carson Mitchell (Sr.), MF Duy Vo (Sr.), F Cody Stimans (Fr.), MF Matt Dubois (Fr.), MF Cameron Guild (Sr.) Outlook: The Black Bears graduated 16 players from a team that lost in overtime to Falmouth in the Class B West semifinals. They also lost a returning starter to football. Coach Beckwith put together a grueling preseason schedule filled with Class A contenders. The five seniors on the team will be relied upon a lot, particularly Varney and Elwell. Coach’s comment: “I’m probably going to have more depth but I won’t be as fast as I’ve been in the past. We’re not as bad as people think.”

Coach: Mike Morin (1st season) Last season: 7-6-1 in Class B West Top returners: MF Hannah Clough (Sr.), F/MF Hannah Cumler (Sr.), MF/D Katie Poulin (Sr.), MF Sydney Gilbert (Jr.), G Kristina Kelly (Sr.), D Taka Jackson (Sr.), D Ashley Belanger (Jr.) Key newcomers: G Elizabeth DiAngelo (Fr.), MF Adrian Huntington (Jr.), MF Katelyn McGregor (So.), MF Lily McGregor, MF Natalie Wicks (Fr.), MF Sarah Clough (Fr.), MF Michelle Beckwith (Sr.), MF Sarah Beckwith (So.) Outlook: Morin, who coached the Erskine junior varsity girls last year, takes over and is implementing a short passing system which he says the team bought into this summer. The Black Bears are a versatile group that has played a lot of soccer together and Morin believes a couple of freshmen will contribute as well. Michelle and Sarah Beckwith, both of whom transferred from Erskine, are key additions to the team. Coach’s comment: “We have a lot of flexibility this year. I think we’re pretty balanced.”

Coach: Tanya Evans (2nd season) Last season: 4-9 in Western B Top returners: B Shannon McGuire (Sr.), B Natalie Ware (Sr.), B Miriah Vining (Jr.), F Lindsay Jackson (So.), M/B Taylor Pierce (So.), F/M Emily Smith (So.) Key newcomers: B Rebecca Adams (Jr.), G Sara Duplisea (Jr.), B Veronika Eriacher (Jr.), M/B Whitney Dubois (So.), G Bri Gotez (So.), B Lydia Rice (So.), F Lindsay Webber (So.), F/M Elise Lincoln (Fr.), F Amber Ridion (Fr.) Outlook: Maranacook will still play a Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B schedule but will compete in Western C. The Black Bears are young, but have shown glimpses of playing beyond their years. The key, Evans said, is to somehow increase that to playing that way for about three-quarters of the game. Coach’s comment: “We don’t have the luxury of putting fresh legs in (often). So they’re going to have to work hard and stay focused.”

Coach: Rosalea Kimball (8th season) Last season: 9th in KVAC B, 6th in Western B, 10th in Class B Top returners: Abby Mace (Sr.), J’rae Mendall (Sr.); Harley Graziano (Sr.), Kate Paradis (Jr.), Deanna Morris (Jr.), Caroline Colan (Jr.), Sarah Adams (Sr.), Emma Gyorgy (So.), Maddy Chiappetta (So.), Victoria Nollette (So.), Hannah Colan (Jr.), Olivia Swimm (So.), Mary Manley (So.), Gracie Kavanah (So.). Key newcomers: Coleen Wright (Fr.), Hannah Despres (Fr.), Ellie Nazar (So.), Ellie Longfellow (Fr.), Ashley Anderson (Sr.), Thea Pederson (Jr.). Outlook: Mace is one of the top runners in the state and is injury free after an injuryplagued junior season. As a sophomore she won the Class B title by 1:09. She finished second last fall. Colan finished fourth at the KVAC B meet last season and Despres has been impressive early. Coach’s comment: “Right now we have a number of girls who could make up our top seven. Our varsity team may change several times over the course of the season. Hannah Despres has had an impressive summer of training and I’m looking forward to seeing her race. We also have a couple of foreign exchange students running on the girls team. It’s hard to say yet what difference that could make for us.”

Coach: Rosalea Kimball (8th season) Last season: 3rd in KVAC B, 5th in Western B, 10th in Class B Top returners: Taylor Watson (Sr.), Louis Chiappetta (Sr.), Christian Wick (Sr.), Kilton Webb (Jr.), Tristan Stockford (Jr.), David Robinson (Sr.), Matt Davis (So.), Austin Landry (So.), Kelby Mace (So.), Jason Stevenson (So.), Koji Kobayashi (Jr.), Ian Perry (Jr.). Key newcomers: Quintin Diou-Cass (So.), Nick Barnes (So.), Kae Pakulski (Fr.), Chad Lee (Jr.), Colby Watts (Fr.), Ethan Harriman (Fr.), Toby Smith (So.), Calen Mendall (So.). Outlook: Mace finished 16th in the Western B regional last season. Watson came on strong last fall and finished 11th at the KVAC B meet. Watts has also been impressive and was labeled by Kimball as a “runner’s runner.” Coach’s comment: “We have quite a solid top group of guys this year and have some very promising looking newcomers as well. Colby Watts has been dying to run on the high school team for two years and Ethan Harriman was a top nordic skier last winter. Again, our top seven will probably shift as the season goes on. Several of the boys have put in more miles than usual over the summer and we hope to see that make a difference for us.”

Outlook: The Black Bears have some quality golfers returning, including Ruffing, who played No. 1 as a freshman. Delmar, Webb and Whitman form a solid corp behind Ruffing. Coach’s comment: “(Ruffing) seems to be the No. 1 right now. He has a decent spread on No. 2, and then everyone is close together, in the low to mid 40s.”

BOYS SOCCER Coach: Joe Fletcher (2nd season) Last season: 5-8-1 in Class C West Top returners: G Devin West (Jr.), MF Nick Trenholm (Sr.), F Kyle Fletcher (So.), D Drew McFerren (Jr.), D Kyle Brown (Sr.), F Cam Copeland (Sr.), MF Ethan Bickford (Sr.), MF Russell Neal (Jr.), F Joe Menice (So.) Key newcomers: D Ben Bolstridge (Fr.), G/D Sherman Spears (Fr.), G/D Casey Smtih (Fr.), D Ben Woodman (Sr.) Outlook: The Mustangs showed improvement in Fletcher’s first year as coach and figure to get better still. Kyle Fletcher, the coach’s son, scored 17 goals as a freshman but will likely be getting some help this season from Trenholm and Copeland. This group played a lot of soccer during the offseason and Coach Fletcher hopes that pays dividends. Coach’s comment: “The team chemistry is really good. I really believe we’re going to be better than we were last year. Our goal is to make the playoffs.”

GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Gary Trafton (5th season) Last season: 7-5-2 in Class C West Top returners: D/GK Molly Menice (Sr.), D Colby Wilson (Sr.), D Kourtnee Langlois (Sr.), D Angie Bechard (Sr.), F Lauren Beaudoin (Sr.), F Chelsea Arsenault (Sr.), D Danielle Bumann (Jr.), F Melissa Brassard (Jr.), D Lenny Urquhart (Jr.), MF Ashley Coulombe (So.), F Kylie Kemp (So.). Key newcomers: G Natalie Young (So.), G Adriane Gomez (Jr.) Outlook: The Mustangs turned the corner last season as many of their players built on two or three years experience. Most of them are back, including six seniors, which should put them in the Class C tournament mix. With six returning players on defense that should be the team’s strong suit. But Trafton said the team has also shown it can score goals over the summer and during preseason. Coach’s comment: “I’m not going to have as much depth as I thought, but we’ll do well. We’ll score goals.”

Coach’s comment: “Robert joined us last year at the start of the year before we decided not to have a team and from what I’ve seen has markedly improved. D.J. McHugh is an athlete plaing golf. I don’t think it will take him very long to see significant improvement when he is able to practice every day.”

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Tom Menendez (10th season) Last season: 3rd in MVC, 9th in Western C Top returners: Mackenzie Kelley (Sr.), Tiffany Pease (So.), Amanda Anair (So.), Tammy Cushman (Sr.). Key newcomers: Christine Kahl (Sr.), Becky Bryant (Fr.), Jordan Mann (Fr.), India Pickett (Fr.), Emily Szotkowski (Fr.). Outlook: Once a dominant force in the MVC, the Mustangs underwent a rebuilding project last fall. Pease finished fourth at the MVC championships as a freshman last fall. If Kelley and Roberts can improve their times, the Mustangs might have enough team depth to contend for the conference title again. Coach’s comment: “After last year’s low numbers, this year is more promising with quality new blood and a strong desire to get better. The philosophy is nothing matters until the end of the season. Our goal is to get ready to run in October. Qualifying for states this year would be the goal and I think that is doable.”

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Tom Menendez (10th season) Last season: 2nd in MVC, 5th in Western Class C, 4th in Class C Top returners: Matt Bryant (Sr.), Tyler Horsford (Jr.), Dylan Thombs (So.), Ben Bailey (So.), Marques Houston (So.), Stewart Buzzell (So.), Brian Nugent (Sr.). Key newcomers: Alex Turbide (Fr.), Hannon Sanford (Fr.). Outlook: Menendez had a big influx of runners last fall and nearly won the MVC championship, losing to Boothbay by four points. Horsford, Buzzell and Bryant finished 17th, 18th and 19th respectively in that meet. Menendez’ goal is to get his boys runners to form a nice, tight pack running below 18:30 this season. Coach’s comment: “Having lost the top three runners it will be interesting to see who steps up. The pack needs to get faster for the team to do well this year.”

Abram returns eight starters and should improve last season’s record. The Roadrunners are searching for a scorer. Coach’s comment: “Depth will be an issue for us. We have to stay healthy, something we could not do last year. We are already missing two seniors due to knee surgery, but are looking forward to improving each day and providing a better outcome than last year.”

Abram returns a strong core of seniors. The Roadrunners were strong defensively last year and could be tough to score on. They are still looking for a scorer or two to emerge. Coach’s comment: “I expect to get rid of a few of the ties from last year and put them in the win column. We would like to get a home playoff game after traveling the last two years to Wiscasset and Waynflete. The kids have worked hard over the summer and are looking forward to the season.”

FIELD HOCKEY

BOYS SOCCER

Coach: Jeannine Paradis (9th season) Last season: 2-12 in Eastern A Top returners: F Meghan Bullen (Sr.), B Corinne Dingley (Sr.), M Heather Farrington (Sr.), B Nicole Tracy (Sr.), B Taylor Harris (Sr.), G Kasey Gaboury (Jr.), F Alyssa Williams (Jr.), M Kayla Newbill (Jr.), M Sarita Crandall (So.), F Mikayla Oswald (So.) Key newcomers: F Kati Bessey (So.), B Courtney Austin (So.), F Krista McLatchy (So.), B Shula Yeaton (So.), B Keri Harnden (So.), G Rileigh Blanchet (So.), M Victoria Newbill (Fr.), M Erynn Hiscock (Fr.) Outlook: Everything’s new for Mt. Blue this season — a new class, a new field and a bunch of new players. So it will take time for the Cougars to iron out the kinks and get used to their surroundings. Coach’s comment: “I want to see us improve every day. If we learn a skill on Monday, I want it implemented in Tuesday’s practice or Tuesday’s game. We have to work hard for everything we’re going to get.”

Coach: Joel Smith (11th season) Last year: 7-5-3, lost in Eastern A quarterfinals to Brunswick Top returners: M Colton Hall (Sr.), F Blake Hart (Sr.), D Steven Yardley (Sr.), D Matt Crowley (Sr.), M Sam Richardson (Sr.), D North Kay (Sr.). Key newcomers: M Drew Parsons (Fr.), M Sam Taylor (So.), Mike Doirion (So.), M Casey Taylor (So.). Outlook: The Cougars should be strong up the middle and are looking for players to play on the wings. Coaches comment: “This year’s team is working hard and, at times, have shown signs that they will be competitive. The guys realize that in order to be successful they need to work hard and play solid team defense. The team is definitely excited that they can move forward and compete at a high level.”

GOLF Coach: Mark Cyr (4th season) Last season: 8-1 Home course: Wilson Lake Top returners: Matt Dustin (Sr.), Drew Ferarri (Jr.), Derek Hoyt (Sr.), Cam Henkel (Sr.) Key newcomers: Taylor French (Fr.) Outlook: The Cougars suffered a few key losses from last season’s team. Dustin will likely play No. 1 to start the season. Coach’s comment: “I think if we can finish above .500 we’ll be happy. All of our toughest matches are away this year.”

GIRLS SOCCER

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY

Coach: Fred Conlogue (3rd season) Last season: 7-5-3, lost to Bangor in East A quarterfinals Top returners: D Mackenzie Hobbs (Sr.), M Emily Ramsey (Sr), M Rachel Karno (Sr.), F Marina West (Sr.). D Carolyn Poliquin (Jr.), D Kristen Brown (Jr.), F Cherokee Clements (Jr.), F Mackenzie Conlogue (Jr.), M Chelsea Newhall (Jr.), M Makenzie Thompson (Jr.), D Lauren St Laurent (Jr.), M Katie Lewis (Jr.), D Jaycee Mullen (Jr.), M Zyrah Giustra (Jr.), D Brianna Gelinas (Jr.), K Gabby Foy (Jr.), M Miranda Nicely (So.). Key newcomers: D Shireen Luick (Jr.), M Kianna Thompson (So.), M Emma Enoch (So), K Thia Bridges (So.), M Savannah Swain (So.) Outlook: The Cougars have depth at all positions with a wealth of juniors and should remain in the hunt. Mt. Blue is well-balanced and could be one of the top teams in Eastern A this fall. Hobbs, Ramsey, Karno and West are team leaders. Coach’s comment: “For us to take the next step we need to work hard every day. The effort is there so far.”

Coach: Kelley Cullenberg (19th season) Last season: 3rd in KVAC A, 3rd in Eastern A, 10th in Class A Top returners: Addie Cullenberg (Sr.); Molly Fissette (Sr.); Emily Gardner (Sr.); Juliette Luchini (Sr.); Courtney Qi (Sr.); Louisa Stancioff (Sr.); Abby Lochala (Jr.); Maryam Norton (Jr.); Anja Nordstrom (So.); Sarah Wade (So). Key newcomers: Alexaiya Backman (Sr.); Louise Legein (Sr.); Emily Roberts (Sr.); Deanna Richards (Jr.); Macee Qi (So.); Casey Rogers (So.); Katherine Gunther (Fr.); Chenoa Jackson (Fr.). Outlook: Cullenberg and Stancioff are a formidable pairing at the top of the Mt. Blue lineup. Hilton has emerged as a reliable runner along with Wade. Norton went to two running camps over the summer and is starting out right about where she left off last season. Coach’s Comment: “Several of the girls have stepped up and did what they had to do to get their times down. It will be really neat to see what they are capable of. We may not turn heads initially. I think because of the newness of some of these girls it will take some time to adjust. But by the end of the season, we might be vying for a competitive spot in the KVAC.”

Coach: Kelley Cullenberg (19th season) Last season: 2nd in KVAC A, 2nd in Eastern A, 6th in Class A Top returners: Jonah Jones (Sr.); Alex Chandler (Sr.); Jackie Chen (Sr.); Justin Tracy (Jr.); Sully Jackson (Jr.); Corey Iba (Jr.); Dustin Staples (So.); Silas Rogers (So.). Key newcomers: Joshua Horne (So.); Noah LePage (So.); Tim Meservier (So.); Allen Taylor (So.), Rickie Chen (Fr.); Brendan Hickey (Fr.); Dan Lesko (Fr.); Sam McIntosh (Fr). Outlook: Jones finished 14th in the KVAC A meet last season and led the way for a deep Mt. Blue squad. He has some injury concerns this season and it is not known how much he’ll be able to contribute. Cullenberg believes that Chandler, Jackson and Tracy provide the type of depth that will keep Mt. Blue competitive throughout the season. Coach’s comment: “The most exciting development for Mt. Blue is their bonding and togetherness that has taken place. It’s great to see them coming together. Like the girls, the boys numbers are down a bit. How it’s going to pan out, it’s hard to say at this point.”

Outlook: The Mustangs lost nine players to graduation, but they should still be competitive in Eastern B. Stubbs, a back last year, moves to center midfielder and looks strong there. There are also enough returning players that there is experience in every area. Coach’s comment: “The thing they need is to come together as a team now, with so many new players.”

Key newcomers: M Morgan Clifford (So.), D Shaniah Gilley (So.), D Courtney Morse (So.), D Alexis Strain (So.), G Logan Basford (Fr.) Outlook: Mt. View will need a young defense to play well to succeed this season. Also, the forwards and midfielders need to finish with confidence and composure. The Mustangs will rely on team speed. Coach’s comment: “It’s exciting to have the opportunity to work with these girls. It would have been easy for them to give up after the last few difficult seasons but they haven’t. They’re excited, they’re enthusiastic and they’re working hard to take this program in a new direction.”

Coach’s comment: “Eric Larrabee played a lot this summer and is shooting very well. He’ll be my No. 1 golfer this year. We are looking for a lot out of him.”

The Warriors need to get off to a quick start after dropping crucial games early in the season last fall. Coach’s comment: “This group finished strong last season, returning 10 of 11 starters I am looking forward to a strong start to the season and am excited to see where this team can take us.”

BOYS SOCCER GOLF Coach: Tom Kus (20th season) Last season: 3-7 Home course: Palmyra Golf Course Top returners: Ethan Pearl (Sr.), Casey Wickens (Sr.), Michael Bickford (Jr.) Key newcomers: Not available at press time Outlook: The Warriors are young, with four sophomores and five freshmen. Pearl will play No. 1 this season. Coach’s comment: “I look forward to these kids progressing over the next couple, three years.”

Coach: Bill Freudenberger (12th season) Last season: 2-10-2 Top returners: D Mitchell Mendonca (Sr.), M Cody Brawn (Sr.), K Thomas Batchelder (Sr.), F Lucas Hayden (Jr.). Key newcomers: F Josh Orcutt (Jr.), F Jeff Ludden (Jr.), M Aron Smestad (Jr.) Outlook: Nokomis needs a strong defensive effort and to limit the number of fast-break opportunities it allows to succeed this season. Coach’s comment: “Our goals for this season include making the playoffs and improving on last season's record. With our positive attitude and work ethic I expect the team to meet the goals we have set for ourselves.”

BOYS SOCCER

GIRLS SOCCER

Coach: Joe Scribellito (6th season) Last season: 9-3-2, Class D West champs Top returners: MF Ben Carver (Sr.), D Kade Strout (Sr.), MF Brian Snedeker (Sr.), F Peter Lorbeski (Sr.), G Tyler Harrington (Sr.), MF Randy Moody (Jr.), D Xavier Trask (Jr.), MF Brett Stillwell (Jr.), F Sam Lorbeski (So.), F/MF Nate Tribbett (So.), G Dustin Sullivan (So.), D Evan Esancy (So.), MF James McAuliffe (So.), F Colin Acord (So.), Key newcomers: D Derek Davidson (Jr.), MF Skyler Myers (So.), MF William Gaudet (so.), MF Sean Bernier (So.), F Cameron Emmons (Fr.), D Marcus Blake (fr.) Outlook: In a “down” year last season the Bobcats managed to reach the state final for the sixth straight time where they lost to Bangor Christian. They gained a lot of experience in the process and hope to cash in on that this season. Strout is a stalwart at center fullback and runs the defense while Harrington returns for a second year in goal. Carver and Moody form a strong tandem at midfield while Lorbeski and Tribbett are proven scorers. Coach’s comment: “If we overcome the simple mistakes, I think we’ve got a pretty good chance to do something special.”

Coach: Troy Kendrick (23rd season) Last season: 16-1-0, Class D state champions Top returners: Danica Hurley (Sr.), MF Sadie Gosse (Jr.), Noell Acord (Jr.), MF Peyton Johnson (Jr.), MF Taylor Clapp (Jr.), MF Andra Meagher (Jr.), D Bri Snedeker (Jr.), D Ciarra Lancaster (Jr.), D Katie Webster (Sr.), G Lindsy Hoopingarner (Sr.), MF Emily Leavitt (Jr.), D Marlena Carter (Jr.), D Haley Murphy (So.), F Jessie Anair (Jr.), F Kayla Taylor (Jr.), MF Jamie Plummer (Jr.), MF Kayla Beaulieu (So.) Key newcomers: F Amber Loon (Fr.), MF Michaela Lewia (Fr.), MF Saige Strout (Fr.), D Leandra Martin (Sr.) Outlook: The Bobcats return nearly everyone from last year’s state championship team including a pair of four-year starters in Hurley and Hoppingarner. Hurley scored 28 goals including the game-winner in the state title game and was named Class D Player of the Year. Acord added 17 goals and Gosse scored 14. Martin, who has battled two knee surgeries and hasn’t played since her freshman year, will be a welcome addition. Coach’s comment: “It’s a talented group. If you can bring back eight starters that’s always a good thing.”

GIRLS SOCCER Coach: Steve Bodge (1st season) Last season: 0-13-1 Top returners: D Alison Redmond (Sr.), D Lexia Dorr (Sr.), M Katie Richards (Sr.), D Kylie Richards (Sr.), F Amanda Johnson (Sr.), D Megan Perkins (Sr.), M Anna Marshall (Sr.), D Renee Libby (Jr.), K Andrea Quirion (So.) Key newcomers: F Christina Caggiano (So.), M Shelby Watson (So.), Kaitlyn Therriault (So.), M Alana Atkinson (So.), F Morgan Buker (So.), F Taylor Johnson (So.), M Cailee Manzer (Fr.), D Brittany Hemphill (So.), M Olivia French (Fr.). Outlook: The Indians have a new coaching staff and a roster dominated by seniors and sophomores. Scoring was a challenge last season and the Indians will look to some younger players to improve in that area. Coach’s comment: “This team has been working extremely hard and expects to compete game in and game out.”

CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Laura Farrington (3rd season) Last season: Not enough runners to score as a team Top returners: Kenikki Hutchinson (Sr.); Rhiannon LaPlante (Sr.); Christie Smith (Jr.); Betsy Li (So.). Key newcomer: Noah Stevens (Fr.). Outlook: Farrington believes that individually Skowhegan’s returning runners are on track to set strong PR’s this season. The experience that LaPlante, Li and Smith gained competing at the KVAC A meet last October will certainly help. Coach’s comment: “Numbers continue to be an issue, so our focus is on helping each runner succeed individually. We hope to recruit one more girl so that we can have a scoring team.”

BOYS SOCCER Coach: Dillon Clark (1st season) Last season: 0-14 Top returners: M Matthew Kay (Sr.), M Henry Ametti (Jr.), GK Chase Palmer (Sr.), M Camden Despres (Jr.). Key newcomers: F Josh Surette (Fr.), D Lyric Daegle (Fr.). Outlook: A former player at the University of Maine at Farmington, Clark takes over the Indians this season. Conditioning has been a top priority in the preseason. Coach’s comment: “I am very excited to start this season and can truly see a ton of potential in a program that hasn’t seen the success they deserve in the past couple of years. The players all remain enthusiastic and are definitely looking for a great season.”

GOLF Coach: Dave Martin (1st season) Last season: 0-10 Home course: Lakewood GC Top returners: Isaac Wacome (Sr.), Caitlyn Johnson (Jr.) Key newcomers: John Swett (So.), Chase Nelson (So.), Trevor Hisler (Jr.) Outlook: Martin returns to coach the Indians after two years away from the program. He has good numbers, with 18 new players out. Coach’s comment: “We are obviously a young team and we will have a bit of a learning curve when it comes to matches. However, I think that we have a very strong core of players to build for the future.”

FIELD HOCKEY Coach: Paula Doughty (31st season) Last season: 18-0, Class A state champions Top returners: M Nicole Sevey (Sr.), F Jessie Skillings (Sr.), B Mikayla Fitzmaurice (Sr.), F Cierra Labbe (Sr.), F Haley Holt (Sr.), M Sarah Finnemore (Jr.), B Mikayla Bolduc (Jr.), F Makaela Michonski (Jr.), B Erica Blake (Jr.), B Adrianna Martineau (Jr.), G Anne-Marie Provencal (Jr.), B Gabrielle Tenan (Jr.), M Allison Lancaster (So.), B Logan LeBlanc (So.), M Holly Lupo (So.), M Mikayla Toth (So.), F Zoey Gleason (So.) Key newcomers: F Charlotte Johnstone (Jr.), B Heather Lupo (So.), F Renee Wright (Fr.), F/M Rylie Blanchet (Fr.), B Tory Mullen (Fr.), G Jasmine Gordon (Fr.) Outlook: All but four players are back from a team that outscored its opponents, 92-3, in winning the Class A title. Sevey and Skillings are headed to the University of Maine next year, and Fitzmaurice, one of the better backs in the state, is also a Division I prospect. There is also a lot of depth here. Coach’s comment: “It’s sort of a potpourri. We’ve got five or six kids from each class. They’re really interchangeable. They play well together.”

FIELD HOCKEY

Coach: Mike Pelletier (7th season) Last season: 1-9 Home course: The Meadows Top returners: Jacob Martin (So.), Connor Keene (So.), Dan Woodward (So.), Oleg Wing (Jr.), Casey Vachon (Sr.), Alexis Priest (Sr.), Josh Martin (Sr.) Key newcomers: Cam Ayers (Fr.), Jacob Bannister (Fr.), Matthew Gilbert (Fr.), Matthew Arnold (Fr.) Outlook: The Raiders lost just one golfer to graduation but still return a young team. The four freshmen and three sophomores are all expected to contribute. Pelletier said the Martin brothers showed dramatic improvement and are in line to lead the team as well. Priest also returns as a strong contributer. She’s qualified for the ladies championship in each of the last three seasons. Coach’s comment: “We’re very young. We’re pretty much loaded with freshmen and sophomores. It’s another rebuilding year.”

Coach: Brittany Chadbourne (1st season) Last season: 1-12 in Western B Top returners: B Miranda D’Allesandris (Sr.), B Kaitlyn Pelletier (Sr.), B Monica Grass (Sr.), B Sandy Wilson (Jr.), B Bri Hodgkins (Jr.), F Heather Krook (So.) Key newcomers: B Emily Akers (Sr.), G Ashley Ward (Sr.), F Baylee Ayers (So.), F Cassidy Cunningham (So.), F/M Livannah Zieira (So.), F Heather Hannigan (Fr.), F Abbey Dodge (Fr.), F Courtney Roy (Fr.), F/M Sadie Goulet (Fr.), F Hayley marshall (Fr.), M Danielle Samson (Fr.), M Autumn Frechette (Fr.), M Kaylka Veilleux (Fr.), B Michaela Hilb (Fr.) Outlook: Chadbourne, who played at Gardiner and at the University of Connecticut, takes over a program which has not been able to compete with the top teams in recent years. Still, she points out they’re having fun and are willing to try what she’s asking of them. Chadbourne said she’s hoping to build up the youth program. Coach’s comment: “It’s a great group of girls. The chemistry is great, which is always helpful.”

BOYS SOCCER

GIRLS SOCCER

Coach: Chris Albert (1st season) Last season: 7-6-1 in Class B West Top returners: MF Jamiel Kidd (Sr.), F Dalton Burns (Jr.), MF Caleb Meserve (Sr.), MF D Cody Rolston (Sr.), D Logan Gardner (Jr.) Key newcomers: MF Trevor Samson (Jr.), D Adam Priest (So.), D Kenyon Frasier (Sr.), F Kyle Ridley (So.), G Sam Morin (Jr.), F Kam Doyon (Fr.) Outlook: The Raiders have a blue-chip player in Kidd to go with four solid returnees, but not much depth. The addition of Samson and Morin, good allaround athletes, will give the team a big boost. Albert comes on to coach after working in a successful program at Lewiston. Coach’s comment: “We may start a little slow but we’re definitely going to finish. We have good chemistry already.”

Coach: Nicole Camire (1st season) Last season: 8-5-1 in Class B West Top returners: F Darby Beaulieu (Sr.), MF Marrissa Caskin (Sr.), D Jane Marston (Sr.), D Leah Rossi (Sr.), MF Amanda Bloss (Jr.), F Gabby Green (Jr.), MF Brooke LeBel (Jr.), D Megan Rodrigue (Jr.). Key newcomers: D Sarah Carpenter (So.), F Alyssa Rouleau (Jr.), F Julie Moreault (Jr.), MF Kayla Ross (Jr.), G Desiree Johns (Jr.), G Kelsey Collins (So), D Toni Hart (Fr.), MF Vanessa Wright (Fr.). Outlook: Camire takes over after coaching the junior varsity last year. She has a strong returning group led by Caskin and Bloss at midfield. The Raiders also return three defenders which should bode well for first-year keeper Johns. Beaulieu is a solid scorer who should receive help from Green and Moreault. Coach’s comment: “It’s a pretty deep team. We’re going to have a really strong defense.”

Key newcomers: Daniel Rogers (Jr.), Outlook: Valley hopes to bring on some more runners to be able to compete as a team and improve on last year’s results.

Coach’s Comment: “I am anxious to start my first year of coaching our cross country team. The young men who have committed to this program are a very determined group. I look forward to helping them achieve all their personal goals throughout the season.”

Coach: Ian Wilson (5th season) Last season: 12-3-1, lost in East A semifinals Top returners: M Hannah Jabar (Sr.), D Lauren Massey (Sr.), F Abbie Webster (Sr.), M Colleen O’Donnell (So.), M Alexa Frame (Jr.), M Morgan Pellerin (Jr.), D Jamie Saulter (So), D Mel Bureau (Jr.), D Marissa Jolicoeur (Jr.), M Jen Christensen (So.), M Emily Dufour (So.), D Cassidy Daingler (So.), K Hannah Allen (So.), K Kira Buker (Jr.) Key newcomers: M Lydia Roy (Fr.), F Sarah Shulta (Fr.), D Kellie Bolduc (Fr.), M Brooke Ettinger (Fr.), M Morgan Tortorella (Fr.) Outlook: The Panthers have tremendous team speed and athleticism. They did lose alltime leading scorer Jordan Pellerin, who is now at the University of Maine. Waterville will look to its upperclassmen to lead the younger players. Coach’s comment: “We always have the highest expectations for our players and our team, and this year is no different. There are many young players in crucial positions this year, so the older leaders must do an outstanding job of guiding and teaching them in order for us to attain our goals.”

GOLF Coach: Reggie Grenier (8th season) Last season: 9-1 Home course: Waterville Country Club Top returners: Jim Lavin (Sr.) Key newcomers: Lauren Hallenbeck (Jr.), Devin Burgess (Jr.) Outlook: The Panthers have very low numbers early in the preseason and graduated a lot of their roster from a year ago. Coach’s comment: “We are trying to improve throughout the season and, hopefully, by the time states qualifying comes around, we’ll be doing well.”

IT’S MINE: Waterville’s Jenna Gagnon, right, battles for the ball with Gardiner’s Olivia Reny during a game last season. Gagnon returns to the forward spot to help the Purple Panthers try to improve on their 6-8 record.

FIELD HOCKEY Coach: Amie Wilcox (7th season) Last season: 6-8, lost in Eastern B quarterfinals Top returners: B Meghan Drummond (Sr.), F Tatyana Schneider (Sr.), B Brianna Bernier (Jr.), F Jenna Gagnon (Jr.), B Sage Duguay (Jr.), B Kelsea Tortorella (Jr.), F Kayla Maheux (So.), M Jena Nawfel (So.), M Gabby Bridger (So.), M Olivia Lopes (So.) Key newcomers: G Ally Forkey (Sr.), F Tricia Hasson (So.), M Paige Plourde (So.), B Rachael Bergeron (So.), B Kaitlyn Spalding (So.) Outlook: With 10 players back and a talented new goalie in Forkey, the Purple Panthers are poised to be competitive in a tough league. Nawfel plays beyond her years at center midfielder and Gagnon, Maheux and Schneider work well together on the forward line. Coach’s comment: “We have a lot of leadership and heart. We have a few girls who have really improved their stick skills.”

Coach: Kerry Serdjenian (3rd season) Last season: 8-6-1, lost to Morse in East A quarterfinals Top returners: G Max Brown (Sr.), F Tommy Samson (So.), M John Terhune (Jr.), D Ryan Tozier (So.), D Jake French (Sr.), M Callum Thomas (Sr.) Key newcomers: F Cameron Gardiner, M Denilo Guthro, M Kaleb Kane, D/M Adrianne Rivas, D Zack Carey, F Nate Rector. Outlook: The Panthers have been slowed in the preseason by injuries. Brown was the Morning Sentinel Player of the Year last season and leads a solid defensive unit. Coach’s comment: “We had a fun summer and really kept the momentum going forward following a great season last fall. I’ve got strong leadership in my captains and returning players, and some exciting new players. We are looking to develop our passing game and how we move the ball.”

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY

Coach: Rob Stanton (1st season) Last season: 8th in KVAC B, 11th in Eastern B Top returners: Margaret Robe (Sr.), Tiana Thomas (Jr.), Shannon Ritter (Jr.). Key newcomers: Bethanie Brown (Jr.), Lara Bluhm (Jr.), Anna LeClair (Sr.), Amelia Remillard (Sr.), Emily Cote (Jr.), Abigail Weston (Jr.), Louisa Nyhus (Fr.), Adelia Scheck (Fr.) Outlook: After four seasons coaching the Lawrence girls team, Stanton moves down the road to take over the Waterville program. He will need improved times from solid runners like Thomas and Robe if the Purple Panthers are going to move up in the KVAC and compete for a Class B title. Stanton is pleased with the mix of veteran runners and promising newcomers like Brown, who finished sixth in the 1,600meter race at the New England outdoor championships in the spring. Coach’s comment: “Brown is a game-changer. I would expect her to be our top runner. The girls team is a nice mix of veterans and newcomers. Many are coming off excellent track seasons and are looking fit and strong to start the season. They are a focused and determined group that I know will be looking to improve on last year’s performances.”

Coach: Rob Stanton (1st season) Last season: 8th in KVAC B, 12th in Eastern B Top returners: Ryan Lopes (Sr.), James Robe (Jr.), Jaymes Riley (Jr.), Alan Brickett (Jr.), Anselm Scheck (So.), Danny Pham (Sr.), Aaron Limberger (So.), Nick Derosby (So.), Joseph Bellavia (So.). Key newcomers: Alex Sasuclark (Sr.), Riley Barth (So.), Emmettt De Maynadier (Fr.). Outlook: Replacing Jeff Hale, who finished third in the KVAC B meet, will be a tough task. Stanton has some raw potential in the sophomore class, including Bellavia. Coach’s comment: “With several returning runners, the boys team is ready to move up the ladder in the KVAC and Eastern B region. Strong pack running and consistency will be the key to their success.”

Coach: Mary Beth Bourgoin (6th season) Last season: 10-4, lost in Eastern B quarterfinals Top returners: G Abbi Lutz (Sr.), F Christine Parrilli (Sr.), F Michelle Greene (Sr.), M Rebekkah Raymond (Sr.), F/B Allison Woodside (Sr.), B Sydney Crogan (Sr.), M Allison LeClair (Jr.), M Jen Poulin (Jr.), G Alexis Lachance (Jr.), B Megan Richards (Jr.), B Bethany Winkin (So.), M Sierra Joler (So.), SW Jordyn Dorval (So.) Key newcomers: F Brooke Haskell (Fr.), F/M JoAnn Bourgoin (Fr.), F Mackenzie Winslow (Fr.) Outlook: The Black Raiders are again a solid team, and the junior and and senior classes have considerable experience. Winslow graduated back Danielle Quirion, an all-state player the last two years, but defense should still be a strength of this group. Coach’s comment: “They have great potential, and (the key) is just believing in that and taking it to another level of play.”

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY Coach: Christina Bertolaccini (5th season) Last season: 2nd in KVAC B, 5th in Eastern B, 8th in Class B Top returners: Riley Jones (Sr.), Lauren Schassberger (Sr.), Erica Bertolacccini (Jr.), Heather Freeman (Jr.), Monique Quirion (Jr.), Molly Schassberger (Jr.), Chloe Crosby (So.), Autumn Hopkins (So.), Audrey Jones (So.), Monique Sutherland (So.). Key newcomers: Nicole Fletcher (So.); Shawna Pelotte (Fr.); Taylor Reynolds (Fr.); Alyssa Wright (Fr.). Outlook: The Raiders finished eighth in Class B last fall and have a talented No. 1 in Molly Schassberger, who finished second at the KVAC B meet last fall. Jones also returns after finishing 12th at the KVACs. Jones and Lauren Schassberger add to the Raiders depth. Coach’s comment: “The Winslow girls have been working hard and hope to have a strong season. We would like to contend at KVACs and improve our finish at states. They recognize if they do some hard work, they can improve on what they did last year.”

Myranda Dodge (Jr.), M Autmun Poulin (So.), M Rachel Sirois (So.). Key newcomers: F Pilar Elias (Fr.), D Krista Moody (Fr.), D Meg Nadeau (Fr.), M Devin Fitzgibbons (Fr.), M Kelsey Houston (Fr.), F Cassidy Roderick (Fr.), M Gabrielle Languet (Fr.). Outlook: Winslow lost a number of senior starters but has a solid core of returning players in the midfield and on defense. The freshmen are talented. Coach's comment: “I believe that once the new members of the team mesh with the returners we will be a team to contend with offensively and defensively. Winslow has been historically one of the most competitive and well respected programs in the state of Maine, we intend to carry on that tradition.”

BOYS SOCCER Coach: Carrie Larrabee (3rd season) Last season: 11-4-0, lost to Old Town in East B quarterfinals Top returners: GK Mackenzie Michaud (Sr.), M Finn Ducker (Sr.), D Pierce Ducker (Sr.), D Nick Papsis (Sr.), F Gabe Smith (Jr.) Key newcomers: None at this time. Outlook: Winslow showed major improvement last season and returns key players from that team. The seniors will play a key role in the development of the younger players this season. Midfield and defense should be strong areas for the team this season. Coach's comment: “We have a strong core of returning players and we are looking to continue to be a competitive team in the KVAC. We have a very strong group of young players who will be making a lot of contributions this year.”

Coach: Christina Bertolaccini (5th season) Last season: 2nd in KVAC B, 4th in Eastern B, 8th in Class B Top returners: Josh Larsen (Sr.), Conner Bourgoin (Sr.), Griffin Davis (Jr.), Nick Shuckrow (Jr.), Cody Speropolous (Jr.), Thomas Cassidy (So.). Key newcomers: Caleb Ellis (Fr.), Jacob Larsen (Fr.), Logan Theriault (Fr.). Outlook: Winslow finished second in the KVAC meet last fall, but lost a lot of talent to graduation. Davis and Shuckrow will be looked upon to fill in the gaps. Shuckrow finished fifth at the KVAC B meet last season and ninth at the Eastern B meet. Ellis could contribute immediately. Coach’s comment: “Winslow graduated a lot of seniors this year. Our returning runners look stronger than they did at this time last year, and our underclassmen will have to step up and fill some holes to make states again this year. We have a new assistant coach, Jared Goldsmith, who brings a lot of enthusiasm to the team. It will be fun to see what this boys team can accomplish without the large number of seniors that we had last year.”

GOLF Coach: Bruce Stafford (4th season) Last season: 4-6 Home course: Natanis GC Top returners: Justin Murray (Sr.), Ryan Dutil (Sr.), Justin Kervin (So.), Mike Poulin (Sr.), Michael McLaughlin (Sr.), Jarrod Parish (Sr.), Mike Carpenter (Sr.), Jamison White (Jr.), Michael Strahan (Jr.) Key newcomers: Josh Kervin (Fr.), Parker Morrison (Fr.), Quenten Kelly (Fr.) Outlook: The Raiders finished strong last season, winning four of their final six matches, and hope to build off that run. Murray, Dutil and Justin Kervin are all solid golfers and can all shoot in the low 40s. Coach’s comment: “I think we have a pretty competitive group. I’ve got three kids — Murray, Dutil and Kervin — who are competitive golfers and should be able to compete head-to-head with most teams.”

Coach: Sharon Coulton (31st season) Last season: 12-4, lost in Eastern C semifinals Top returners: B Nikki Burgess (Sr.), B Paige Wood (Sr.), F Mary Claire Blanchard (Jr.), G Lorin Bryant (Jr.), M Shauna Carlson (Jr.), F Lauren Kaiser (Jr.), F Erica Ouellette (Jr.), B Jessica Scott (Jr.), M Jess Ames (So.), G Alyssa Arsenault (So.), B Micaela Hajduk (So.), F Rachel Ingram (So.), F Emmah Spahr (So.) Key newcomers: M Liz Glover (Jr.), F Sara Devoy (So.), F Aja Dostie (Fr.), B Danielle Hutchinson (Fr.), B Gabby Stewart (Fr.) Outlook: The Ramblers lost only three seniors from a team that gave top-ranked Dexter all it could handle in the Eastern C semifinals. Arsenault and Bryant are both solid in goal and will have an experienced defense in front of them. The offense lost all-state forward Nikki Scott (19 goals, 23 assists) to graduation, but other players are definitely capable of scoring. Coach’s comment: “What we have to work on is our quality shots and quality goals, so we can increase our scoring against the top teams.”

GIRLS SOCCER

BOYS SOCCER

Coach: Marc Fortin (9th season) Last season: 2-12-0 in Class C West Top returners: D Amy Belanger (Sr.), MF Alison Sekerak (Sr.), F Lauren Selwood (Sr.), F Corena Richards (Sr.), G Danielle Pease (Jr.), D Caitlin Allen (Jr.), D Brianna Cox (Jr.), F Amber Pitchard (Jr.), MF Kressy Doughty (So.), MF Abby Helm (So.), F Olivia Tsouprake (So.) Key newcomers: D Hailey Eason (Fr.), G/MF Lily Beauregard (Fr.), F Annie Guerette (Fr.), D Nicole MacMillen (Fr.) Outlook: After several strong seasons, the Ramblers struggled last year. With 11 returning players and some talented freshmen they’re a good bet to improve. Pease returns for her second year in goal and has a couple of strong defenders in front of her. Coach’s comment: “We hope to improve every game. We’re going to be looking for some offense. We have some talented freshmen, but they’re freshmen.”

Coach: Greg Ruby (5th season) Last season: 2-12-0 in Class C West Top returners: MF Mitch Guerette (Sr.), MF Connor Doyle (Sr.), G Cameron MacMillen (Sr.), D Devin Kaufman (Sr.), D Will Frost (Sr.), D Peter Michelson (Jr.), MF Tom Pietroski (Jr.). F Justin Lapointe (Jr.) Key newcomers: MF/F Pat Ryan (Jr.), D Declan Chu (Jr.), MF Aaron St. Pierre (Jr.) Outlook: It’s tough for schools of Winthrop’s size (220 students) to field competitive teams in both football and soccer. But the numbers are pretty good in both sports and neither team is feeling sorry for itself. The Ramblers return experienced players in Guerette, Coyle, MacMillen and Ryan, a transfer from Livermore Falls. There’s not a lot of depth, though, and they’ll need to control tempo to be successful. Coach’s comment: “We’re starting to get a little chemistry. I think we’ve got a strong, strong defense.”

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY

GOLF

Coach: Jay Lindsey (11th season) Last season: 2nd in MVC, 6th in Western C Top returners: Molly Kieltyka (So.), Randi Dennett (So.), Sydney Bourgoin (So.). Key newcomer: Theresa Easterbrook (Fr.). Outlook: The Ramblers lost the MVC title by three points to St. Dominic last fall. As a freshman, Kieltyka finished eighth, while Dennett placed 21st overall. Winthrop did lose Anna Doyle, who finished second at the Western C meet last season. Winthrop will have to recruit a few more runners in order to be able to be a scoring team this fall. Coach’s comment: “Working towards creating a solid girls team. We are trying to create some depth. I would love to be as competitive in the MVC’s as we were last year and to move on to the states as a team.”

Coach: Jay Lindsey (11th season) Last season: 5th in MVC, 10th in Western C Top returners: Kameron Souza (Sr.), Marc Hachey (Jr.), Tom Quimby (So.). Key newcomers: Ben Allen (Fr.), Isaac Johnson (Fr.), Dylan Berney (Jr.). Outlook: Souza finished seventh and Hachey 13th at the MVC championships last fall. Berney could be chasing Souza for the top spot on the Ramblers roster. Despite low numbers, Lindsey thinks his squad will be competitive this season. Coach’s comment: “We’ve added some good runners this year and hope to bring the newcomers along. Hope to surprise some people, but the MVC’s has good depth in the boys teams and it will be tough competition.”

Coach: Lonney Steeves (3rd season) Last season: Did not field a team Home course: Springbrook Top returners: Tyler Foster (Sr.) Key newcomers: Tyler Morang (Fr.), Adam Hachey (Fr.), Zach Steele (So.) Outlook: The Ramblers didn’t field a team last year, but Foster played and finished eighth in the Class C championship. He is joined by a good group of underclassmen, and the Ramblers hope to add a fifth scorer and be competitive in the MVC. Coach’s comment: “(Tyler Foster) has added significant length to his game, but has also really improved his mid-range game. Morang and Hachey will give good matches to anyone’s No. 2 and No. 3.”
