Local teams have good turnout BY KEVIN ROUSSEAU Correspondent

T

he preseason has been a challenge for tennis teams, but many local schools optimistic are because of large turnouts and talented returning stars. Cony High School finished 10-2 last season and returns 2010 Kennebec Journal Player of the Year Taylor Edmondson, as well as senior Nicole Kirschner. Edmondson moves up to No. 1 this season after two undefeated regular seasons at No. 2.

The Rams have 36 players on their roster, meaning coach Carol Pateneaude has a lot of talent to choose her starting seven from. “Many of the girls are working hard to improve their game,” Pateneaude said. “This should be a fun season.” Mt. Blue’s roster features a number of seniors, including singles players Lena Kendall and Elizabeth LeClair. The Cougars had 41 players come out for the team this spring and hope to make the Eastern A playoffs after finishing 7-5 last spring. At Messalonskee, senior Paige Oliver will step into the No. 1 singles spot after playing No. 3 a year ago. The Eagles must fill in for graduates Audrey Knowlton and Erin Chapin, who both reached the individual qualifier last season. “It’s going to come down to playing smart and consistent,” Messalonskee coach Caroline Mathes said. “I’m not going to have a power player like Audrey this year.” Junior Amanda Quirion will play No. 1 singles for a Skowhegan team that coach Andrew Staples says is motivated after winning two matches last season. At Mt. Abram, new coach Jamie Bandershall has three returners and seven newcomers. The Roadrunners finished 9-3 a year ago and will look to junior Staci Plog for leadership. Oak Hill (11-1 last season) has made it to the Western B finals the last two seasons only to lose to perennial powerhouse Falmouth on both occasions. With five

Senior Hannah Langlois advanced in the singles tournament last season. Last year, Maranacook went 9-3 and reached the Western B semifinals. Junior Adrienne Nel plays tennis year-round and will be a valuable piece of the Black Bear team this spring. Nel moves up from No. 3 to No. 1 this season. “She’s a pretty solid player but it’s a big step up form third singles to first singles,” Winthrop coach Louis Gingras said. New coach Jill Cristan is no stranger to the Waterville tennis program. She coached the Panthers junior varsity team for six seasons. The Panthers have a strong group of freshmen who could contribute right away. Winslow, meanwhile, lost two of seven starters from last season. Jessica McCaslin will likely play No. 1 for the Black Raiders. In the Mountain Valley Conference, Hall-Dale went 10-2 last season but lost five of seven starters from that team. Junior Wendy Goldman returns at No. 1 singles. She beat all but one of her opponents last spring, Winthrop’s Kelsey Ouellette, who graduated. At Monmouth, senior Taylor Scott moves from No. 3 singles to No. 1. Juniors Molly Plossay and Brittany Roberts will likely fill the other two singles spots for the Mustangs. Winthrop lost its top two sin-

gles players, Ouellette and Elaine Theriault, and have just three starters returning. There will be plenty of competition between Molly Lindsey, Amber Pritchard, Jessica Scott and Emma Spahr for the top three singles spots. Travis Rogers takes over a young Madison team which has just one senior and one junior on its roster.

Ramblers, Bulldogs should be in mix Mountain Valley Conference teams will make a run at Western C title BY KEVIN ROUSSEAU Correspondent

M

o n m o u t h Academy reached the last two Western Maine Class C finals, but its two of the Mustangs’ rivals who could make a run at the Mountain Valley Conference title this season.

2010 STATE CHAMPS Class A: Windham Class B: Cape Elizabeth Class C: Waynflete Individual: Brandon Thompson, Waynflete Winthrop is one of the teams that could challenge for a title. The Ramblers went 12-0 last season before losing to Madison, 3-2, in the Western Maine Class C quarterfinals. The Ramblers have all seven starters returning this season. “We have everyone returning and we got some new players who add some depth,” Winthrop No. 1 singles player Adam St. Pierre said. St. Pierre added a kick serve and is more confident about his backhand this season. He is joined by senior Evan Arbour and junior Dan Miles in the singles lineup. Hall-Dale, meanwhile, has two formidable singles players in brothers Joseph and Spencer Shagoury. The Bulldogs went 10-2 last season before losing to Monmouth in the Western C semifinals. “We feel like we kept enough depth to be competitive in the singles matches,” Joseph Shagoury said. “We have experience at the top and a lot of skill at the bottom of the roster.” Monmouth went 12-0 in the regular season last spring, but lost its top four players to graduation. Madison went 8-4 last season, reaching the Western C semifinals. The Bulldogs, however, return only two starters from last season. Luke Klinker moves up from second singles to the No. 1 spot. In Class B, Maranacook graduated just one senior from a team that went 6-6 last season in Western B. The Black Bears have depth, with 13 players on the roster. Senior Sean Daigle moves up to No. 1 singles. “(Sean) is sometimes too hard on himself,” Maranacook coach Mike Morin said. “He has high expectations for himself.”

LOOKING GOOD: Dan Miles is part of a strong returning starting lineup for the Winthrop boys tennis team. The Ramblers return all three of their No. 1 singles players. Waterville, meanwhile, hasn’t had a losing season in 16 springs and there is no reason to believe that streak will end this spring. Senior Marcus Godin will likely play No. 1 singles for the Purple Panthers, while senior Thomas Greenspan and junior Callum Thomas will likely fill the other two singles spots. “The first three players are interchangeable,” Waterville coach Jim Begin said. “My goal

realistically is to go 9-3 or 10-2. If we do that, we’ll put ourselves in a good position.” Brian Bradstreet returns at No. 1 singles for Oak Hill after winning a match in the singles tournament last spring. He is joined by seniors Joe Turcotte and Jack Champagne in the singles lineup. must replace Gardiner Kennebec Journal Boys Tennis Player of the Year Jared

Hornecker, who graduated. The Tigers competed in Class B for the first time last spring and earned the No. 1 seed in Western B, losing to eventual state champ Cape Elizabeth in the regional

semis. Seniors Isaac Luken and sophomore Justin Ladnar will man the top two singles spots for a rebuilding Gardiner team. “I’m not worried about wins and losses this year,” Gardiner coach Rob Disch said. “My goal is to get my guys playing and developing for the future.” Mt. Blue, a club team four seasons ago, qualified for the Eastern A tournament last spring. The Cougars lost two state tournament qualifiers, Matt St. John and Nick Wilkins, to graduation. Senior Seth Wegner and junior Jake Veayo will be asked to fill the void. Messalonskee has some depth, with 18 players on the team. Sophomore Jai Aslam or junior Chris Knight will likely man the No. 1 singles spot. Jeff Fowler takes over the Cony Rams program from Tom Hinds who coached the program for seven seasons. Senior Dylan Rich has a 25-1 record for Kents Hill over the last two seasons and has won the Maine Association of Independent Schools Athletic Directors title both seasons. Seniors Brendan Keating and Tim Firestone return this year after winning the MAISAD doubles championship last season.

Pitching a question for contenders Cony, Messalonskee searching for answers on the mound BY TRAVIS LAZARCZYK AND GARY HAWKINS Staff Writers

N

o team looks like a runaway favorite in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference’s Class A division this season, although the usual suspects — Bangor and Brewer — should be among the top teams in the north division.

TOP TALENT: Messalonskee High School’s Sam Dexter will move from second base to shortstop this season for the Eagles. Last spring, Dexter hit .397.

2010 STATE CHAMPS Class Class Class Class

A: Oxford Hills B: Waterville C: Dirigo D: Richmond

After a strong run the past three seasons, Cony may take a step back. Lewiston will be favored in the southern division of the KVAC based on returning talent, but the Rams still return enough to contend. Luke Duncklee, Corey Lapierre, Colin McKee and Nick Lucas all started for the Rams last season and are strong hitters and fielders. The big question is what will the Rams have on the mound. Junior Ryan Edwards and sophomore Zac Lachance saw limited action last year but will be counted upon for big innings this spring. Duncklee and McKee will pitch in relief while Tyler Lewis and Chandler Shostak are battling for the No. 3 starter spot. “It’s a big change from what we had last year,” Cony coach Don Plourde said. “We don’t have the pop we had last year so we’re going to have to do things differently.” Messalonskee has one of the best players in the state in shortstop Sam Dexter, who moves over from second base this season. The Eagles also return catcher Justin Tinsman, utility man Parker Forsley, and Gage and Josh Landry. The big question mark for the Eagles is pitching. Coach Ray Bernier has a number of pitchers he can use, just few with varsity experience. “We have kids who are ready to take the challenge. We just have to coach them well,” Bernier said. At Lawrence, first-year coach Rusty Mercier has plenty of pitchers with varsity experience, including Blair Blaisdell, Mike Capponi and Alex Leathers. Shawn Russell, a hard-throwing lefty, had arm surgery in the fall

and should be able to rejoin the rotation. “He worked all winter to come back strong,” Mercier said. The Bulldogs have one of the top catchers in the league in senior Matt Woodbury. Senior Xaviere Scott is playing baseball for the first time since eighth grade, and will provide speed in the outfield. After an 0-7 start, a young Skowhegan team showed improvement and went 5-4 down the stretch last season. The Indians are young again this season, with just six returning players. “Youth is the word of 2011,” Skowhegan coach Rick York said. “We’ve got some quality young kids, but not much varsity experience.” Junior first baseman Isaac Wacome is the top returning hitter. He hit .382 last season. Senior left fielder Sebastian Dumont returns, and sophomore catcher Henry Ametti is back after starting his freshman season. Newcomers Cody Moody, Derek McCarty, Kameron Nelson, and Taylor Bacon are expected to lead the pitching staff. Mt. Blue has the makings of a solid pitching staff, with seniors

Jimmy Neal and Dylan Vining, along with juniors Nick Hilton and Blake Hart. However, Vining is coming off an arm injury that kept him off the mound last season, and coach Dan Stefanilo isn’t sure how much Vining will throw. “He’ll start in the bullpen,” Stefanilo said. “I’m not sure what we can expect, innings-wise.” Senior Clint Lowe returns at second base for the Cougars. Bradley Jackson and Matt Crowley also will find spots in the Mt. Blue lineup. Despite going 1-15 last season, Erskine could be a dark horse this spring. The Eagles return three starting pitchers in Tyler Belanger, Jory Humphrey and Shyler Scates and have a quality closer in shortstop Ryan Pulver. In all, they return 11 players from last season and have some quality bats in Caleb Bragg-Grady, Tom Grady, Pulver and Scates. solid defensively,” “We’re Erskine coach Lars Jonassen said. “Our problem (last year) was scoring runs.” Jonassen hopes a strong American Legion campaign from many of his players last summer will carry over to this season.

“Just in a few weeks I’ve noticed the maturity level is different,” Jonassen said. “We’re competitive at every position.”

The Eagles are the only team in the KVAC without a division and once again play every team in the conference at least once.

Purple Panthers poised to repeat Veterans give Waterville shot for 2nd Class B title BY GARY HAWKINS AND TRAVIS LAZACZYK Staff Writers

A

fter winning its firstever baseball state championship last season, Waterville might not have to wait too long for a second. The Purple Panthers have the pitching and hitting to repeat and are the favorites in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference’s Class B division this season if not the state. Regional champ Cape Elizabeth, Yarmouth and Lincoln Academy are the leading contenders in Western Maine. With five players back who started last season’s state championship game, Waterville is the favorite in the KVAC B again. The Panthers are led by seniors Kyle Bishop, Tim Locke, and Cam Sawyer. All three are four-year starters, and Bishop and Locke went a combined 16-0 on the mound last season, including 4-0 in the playoffs. They’ll be joined by either junior J.T. Whitten, himself a three-year starter at first base, or sophomore Tyler Bouchard in the rotation. Sawyer, Waterville’s second baseman, will hit leadoff for the Panthers. Bouchard takes over at shortstop, and sophomore Racean Wood and freshman Aiden Fitzgerald, who started a number of games for the Waterville American Legion team last summer, are vying for the catcher’s spot. Last season, Waterville made just 14 errors in 20 games. Defense will again be key. “We have to make the routine plays, that’s all you can ask, and make outs,” Waterville coach Don Sawyer said. Gardiner returns a good group of athletes led by pitcher Spencer Allen and catcher Mike Phelps, both seniors. The Tigers expect to be strong defensively while the offense has plenty of hitters if not a lot of power. The key question will be developing a couple of pitchers to complement Allen. Dennis Meehan and Josh Ouellette are competing for the No. 2 spot in the rotation while Aaron Toman and Ian Lane will see action on the mound as well. Winslow has a new coach, Kyle Gunzinger, and returns a talented core of players who helped the Black Raiders win 12 games last season. Three-year starter and conference selection John

McCabe returns at catcher, where he was one of the league’s top hitters last season. Jordan Holt, Zach Carey and Donald Camp are the top returning pitchers, although Gunzinger expects to use a number of players on the hill. “We’re going to try and limit wear and tear on arms by using more than one kid (each game),” Gunzinger said. Camp returns at shortstop, while MacKenzie Michaud moves from the outfield to second base. Kris Smith is back at third for the Black Raiders. Maranacook has a young team and an enthusiastic coach in alumnus Jared Lemieux. The Black Bears return six players led by junior pitcher Eben Ballard and shortstop Dakota Duplissie. Lemieux is auditioning a number of pitchers for the No. 2 spot and beyond. Their development will be the key to the team’s success. “I’m pretty confident in what we have,” Lemieux said. “I think if we get our minds straight we can put together a pretty potent offense.” Oak Hill coach Chad Drouin has confidence in his four man pitching staff led by junior Josh Martin. Craig Morrill is the team’s top returning hitter and this season moves from center field to shortstop. Cody Provost will take over in center when he’s not on the mound. “Defensively, especially in the outfield, we’re going to be very solid,” Drouin said. “Offensively, we’ve got three hitters that are proven.” Last season was a season of

The Warriors won five games after a winless 2009. Now, with a number of players back, coach Jared Foster feels his team can make a run at a playoff spot. “If not, it will be a disappointment,” Foster said. The Warriors have a pair of solid pitchers in lefty Jared Seamans and Justin Amoroso. Hitting could be a concern, Foster said, but shortstop Spencer Hartsgrove and first baseman/catcher Justin Kasprzak should lead the Nokomis offense. Chris Hink is the fourth coach in as many years at Mt. View. Also the boys soccer coach at Mt. View, Hink takes over a team without

much varsity experience. Cutting down on walks issued and errors is the first key to improving on last season’s 2-14 record. “We have kids who can throw strikes. That’s all I want,” Hink said. “I just want a chance to get outs.” Captains Alec Davis (infield/pitcher) and Craig Nealley (pitcher/outfielder) will lead the Mustangs. MCI is coming off back-to-back one win seasons, but coach John

Dean feels the Huskies are set for improvement. “We have a couple of veterans and some young guys who are pleasantly surprising me now,” Dean said. Seniors Ryan Crocker and Yuya Izumi are the top returning pitchers, and newcomers Cody Robbins and Dylan Watrous could see time on the mound. Zack Fortin returns at third base, and Adam Ogden is back behind the plate for the Huskies.

Saints tough, Ramblers could contend Winthrop has a load of talent returning BY GARY HAWKINS AND TRAVIS LAZARCZYK Staff Writers

S

t. Dominic is the favorite in the southern division of the Mountain Valley Conference this season based on both tradition and returning talent. But the Saints should be challenged this season by Winthrop and Wiscasset. In the MVC north, Telstar returns a strong nucleus and defending state champion Dirigo should also contend. Winthrop gained valuable experience last season while taking its lumps with just three wins. The Ramblers played without Ryan Conant, Eric Duplissis and Ryan Castonguay, all of whom were deemed ineligible for violating the school’s participation policy. All three are back this season and will play key roles. Conant, who hit over .500 as a sophomore, will be the team’s No. 1 starter. Junior Tyler Reeve and senior Travis Luce both started last season and will be second and third in the rotation. “We’ve got three nice starters,” Winthrop coach Marc Fortin said. “I wish we had a little more depth.” Duplissis hit .560 as a sophomore while Castonguay is also a strong hitter. Including the three who missed last season, the Ramblers return 11 players. “I think we’re going to hit the ball pretty well,” Fortin said. Hall-Dale has a new coach in Steve Acedo who coached the soccer team last fall and was an assistant for the softball team. The Bulldogs lost six starters and don’t have a senior on the team, but do return eight players who saw action last season. “The infield should be pretty good and the outfield is pretty solid overall,” Acedo said. “They should be pretty good.” Junior Ben Crocker and sophomore Colin Lush are competing for the top spot in the pitching rotation. Crocker, who will play shortstop when he doesn’t pitch, went 2-2 on the mound

“Our outfield is going to be brand new,” Monmouth coach Eric Palleschi said. “The middle of the infield, I don’t know.” Seniors Roger Bachelder, Blake Burnham and Jeremy Ashlock all saw time on the mound last season as did sophomore Josh Fournier. And Billy Cummings returns to catch. Of the 26 players who tried out for the team, Palleschi kept freshmen Brandon Goff, D.J. McHugh and Kyle Fletcher, all of whom can pitch and figure to contribute. Now in his second season, Madison coach Scott Franzose sees his team as a dark horse in the MVC playoff race. “Our mentality is WIN: What’s Important Now,” Franzose said. “I think this is a talented bunch.” The Bulldogs have no seniors on the roster. Junior Stephen Cusson looks to become the staff ace. “He’s really worked hard on his mound presence,” Franzose said. Day will be Stephen 2 starter. No. Madison’s

Sophomore Garrett Emery will catch and pitch, while infielder Rhett McKenney is recovering from an ankle injury. Travis Emerson will play short and pitch, while newcomers Logan Cowan and Dustin Henry will fight for starting roles. Mt. Abram graduated many of the players that helped the Roadrunners win 10 games last season, and former Mt. Blue assistant Lee Nile is the new head coach. “The good thing is, we’re an experienced young team,” Nile said. Junior Josh Beedy moves up to become the staff ace this season, and Nile will fill in behind him with a number of young arms, including sophomore Jay Chenard, who started at shortstop last season. Senior Will London and juniors Parker Kennedy and Trent Rosenberg also return, and have some varsity experience. With few upperclassmen out for baseball this season, Carrabec will play a junior varsity schedule this spring. The Cobras plan on fielding a varsity team again next year.

Western D remains competitive Richmond rebuilds after winning state championship last season BY TRAVIS LAZARCZYK AND GARY HAWKINS Staff Writers

D

espite being the smallest baseball region in the state with just seven teams, Western D has enjoyed some success in recent seasons. Richmond is the defending Class D state champions, and Rangeley won a state title in 2008. Since North Yarmouth Academy moved up to Class C following the 2005 season, either Richmond or Rangeley has won the regional title. Both should be in contention again this season, along with Greenville, last season’s runner-up. Richmond graduated several starters and its top two pitchers from last year’s state championship team. This season, the Bobcats are as young and inexperienced as they’ve been in years with just one senior on the mound. Wade Tuttle is the lone senior and he’ll be counted on to be the team’s No. 1 pitcher and one of its top hitters. Juniors Ben Carver, Kade Strout and Brian Snedeker,

who all saw plenty of action last year, move into prominent roles with Strout taking over at shortstop and Carver moving behind the plate. Coach Ryan Gardner will also have to develop more pitching from a group that includes Carver and sophomores Moody and Tyler Randy Harrington. “We’re going to have to manufacture runs, there’s not a lot of power there,” Gardner said. “It’s unique but these kids love to play. I’ve seen that already.” Last season, Rangeley had a string of four consecutive appearances in the Western D championship game snapped with a loss to Greenville in the semifinals. The Lakers are led by seniors Jordan Richard and Zeke Hall, who will be the team’s top two pitchers. For Richard, it’s a familiar role. “Jordan, he’s definitely a key in us doing well,” Rangeley coach Mark Gordon said. Zeke Hall will be Rangeley’s No. 2 pitcher and also will play center field. Regan Sargent is a veteran at third base, and Alex Morton returns as the Lakers catcher. Forest Hills lost a key player to graduation in Cory Plante, but

READY FOR ANOTHER RUN: Wade Tuttle, sliding, and the Richmond baseball team won the Class D state championship last spring. The Bobcats lost a number of players to graduation, including two pitchers, meaning Tuttle will move into the No. 1 spot in the starting rotation. the Tigers return a pair of pitchers — Dylan McNally and Evan Worster — who have plenty of varsity experience. “Dylan and Evan were my number two and three (starters) last year. They’re a pretty good one-two punch,” Forest Hills coach Mike LeBlanc said. “After that, it’s hit or miss.” Spencer Conrad is a senior outfielder who should provide some offense for the Tigers, and junior Ethan Levesque returns at third base. As always, Forest Hills will count on younger players. Three eighth-graders are on the roster this season. Valley might be the youngest team in the entire state. The Cavaliers have no seniors, one junior, four sophomores and

seven freshmen. “I don’t think we’ve ever had a team this young before,” Valley coach Paul Belanger said. If there’s a silver lining to Valley’s youth, it’s that three of Belanger’s freshmen — Dylan Belanger,

Andrew Marden and Sam Mathieu — started every game as eighth graders last season. Sophomore first baseman Seth Malloy and catcher Dylan Belanger are the top returning hitters to the Valley lineup.

Things have changed in East A Skowhegan, Bangor are no longer clear-cut favorites BY MATT DIFILIPPO Staff Writer

L

ast spring, Skowhegan and Bangor split two games in the regular season, went 17-0 in their other games, and had their expected matchup in the Eastern A softball final.

2010 STATE CHAMPS Class A: South Portland Class B: Hermon Class C: Telstar Class D: Richmond This year, there are not two obvious favorites. In fact, there might not even be one. “I think you’re going to see a different league as a whole,” Skowhegan coach Lee Johnson said. “This year, I really think it’s anybody’s ballgame. I don’t see anybody being really dominant.” Then again, maybe there will be a favorite. Brewer coach Skip Estes told the Bangor Daily News, “I think Cony could run the table, I really do. They’re that good.” “No presssure,” Cony coach Rocky Gaslin joked in reply to that assessment. “There’s so many of us so close together, it’s ridiculous.” Cony does have talent, and finished 14-4 last season. The Rams will miss the big bat of Amy Jones (now playing at The University of Maine at Farmington) but have a good nucleus led by center fielder Suzannah Deeves, who hit .545 last spring. Gaslin wants to make sure the Rams’ opponents get Cony’s best game every single time out. “We have to play together as a team,” Gaslin said. Skowhegan has probably the best player in the league in shortstop Whitney Jones, who will play softball at Seton Hall next year. Jones is still recovering from her preseason basketball injury and is questionable for the start of the season. “She’s making real good progress right now,” Johnson said. The Indians are replacing their battery of Becca McCarty and Sam Gray and must also revamp their offense. Kady Esty is the front-runner among the pitchers right now, but there is talent behind her. “I have five, six pitchers that I’m comfortable I could throw,” Johnson said. “It’s just a matter of getting them enough innings.”

Since going 2-14 in 2007, Messalonskee has gone 7-9, 9-8 and 8-9 in the last three years. The Eagles have not advanced past the preliminary round since 2006, and would like to get out of the .500 neighborhood and into a higher seed. Among the returning players, second baseman Alei Collier made second-team all-conference last year, Bri Warren is a steady third baseman and Alyssa Eugley will move from outfield to catcher. Erskine had essentially the same team in 2009 and 2010, but graduated four key seniors. There are still some veterans here: Seniors Danielle Burns and Jessica Souther have played every inning since they were freshmen, and Meryl Bond is one of the top catchers in the conference. “I think that compared to the last couple years, we’re a little younger and a little less experienced,” Erskine coach Mikle Soule said. “But I’ve got three pitchers, three quality catchers and some returning seniors in the infield that can lead on the field and off.”

The final record of 3-13 wasn’t one Mt. Blue could point to with pride last year, but the Cougars were actually close to being much better than that. “Offensively, I think we struggled last year,” Mt. Blue coach Lisa Dube said. “We got shut out four times. We lost several games by three runs or less. We’re just going to take a more relaxed approach.” Hannah Allen, who had 10 hits in Mt. Blue’s first four games last season, leads a group of six returning seniors for the Cougars. Allen has played center field for years, but Dube is toying with the idea having her catch. Offensively, Allen can help set the table for big sticks like Tanisha Dellarma, Jillian Perron and Sara Turner. If some pieces fall into place, Lawrence could improve on its 412 record of last spring. The Bulldogs have quality players up the middle like catcher Krysta Pelletier, shortstop Jess Poulin and center fielder Megan Moen. With those three in the middle of the lineup and Megan Miville and Sophie Lindsay at the top of the

order, Lawrence should score some runs. “If our pitchers can keep us in the game — throw strikes, mix up

the location, keep batters off balance — our defense will be sound,” Lawrence coach Joey Marcoux said.

Players to watch

Meryl Bond Jr., Erskine Bond is a solid catcher with power and experience for the Eagles.

Suzannah Deeves Sr., Cony Deeves, who hit .545 last season, plays a top-notch center field.

Others to watch

Whitney Jones Sr., Skowhegan Jones, a shortstop, is perhaps the best player in the KVAC when healthy. She’ll play at Seton Hall next season.

CLASS B SOFTBALL

Teams hope to make some noise Winslow could contend in East, while Oak Hill should compete in West BY MATT DIFILIPPO Staff Writer

F

or years, pitchers have dominated Class B softball in central Maine. However, there are no Sarah Maxwells on local rosters this season. Still, at least two teams have the potential to make some playoff noise. Among the local Eastern B teams, Winslow probably has the best shot at a high seed. The Black Raiders won 11 games last season, despite suffering several lateinning losses. All but three starters return, and sophomore catcher Jennifer Poulin is one of the standouts among the newcomers. Pitchers Kaite Bernard and Julie Riordan return and are backed by Mackenzie Drake. Allison LeClair is back after batting cleanup as a freshman and leading the Raiders in most offensive categories. “We have six starters back, and we have some girls who are doing a nice job filling in those spots,” said Winslow coach Steve Blood, whose team entered last year’s playoffs as the sixth seed and lost in the quarterfinals. “I think we should at least compete to be where we were last year, and maybe move up a little bit.” Oak Hill, which competes in Western B, will be another of the top teams in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference. The Raiders have two standout pitchers in Lauren Hall and Kortni Michaud. Both are also part of a dynamic offense. Taylor Fillion, Alexis

Priest, Alyssa Rouleau and Katie Wood are also all capable of delivering big hits for Oak Hill. “I think we were strong defensively last year,” Oak Hill coach Julie Boucher said. “One of the key aspects of our success this year is going to be offense.” Maranacook’s run with Maxwell ended without a trip to the state finals. The Black Bears must replace her and other key players lost to graduation, but still have two top-level players in third baseman Katie Dore and catcher Heidi Shaw. Gardiner won 10 games last season with a combination of pitching, excellent control defense and timely hitting. Pitchers Cassie Snell and Kelsey Moody both return, and while neither is a flamethrower, they each limited their walks to around two per game. “Both of those two girls throw strikes, which I think is very important in softball,” Gardiner coach Conrad Lewis said. Freshman Brittany Rollins could also do some pitching, and the Tigers have nine players returning who saw significant action last spring. “They’re an awful good group of kids,” Lewis said. “I think if they play to their ability and do the little things we have to do, we’re going to be competitive.” Nokomis has only a handful of players returning in the same positions they played last year. The pitchers — Sierra Fortin, Becky Orcutt and Sarah Packard — are all freshmen, and as a team,

the Warriors will make some mistakes of inexperience in the early going. But a good percentage of the players worked on their games over the summer, and coach J.D. McLellan thinks that will help this season. “It’s unreal how dedicated they are,” he said. Waterville is also showing dedication. After starting off 0-10 last season, the Purple Panthers rallied to win a couple games. Coach Matt Madore said the team has an attitude to the effect of, “Last

year was bad, but we still had fun, so now we can handle anything.” “The girls have fun when they come to practice,” Madore said. “We’re doing a lot more things together, JV and varsity, so that we can develop all together as a program. I’m very impressed with the girls 9-12, all grades. They really have stepped up.” Maine Central Insititute had one of the best pitchers in the league last year in Mandy Kennedy, but just missed the playoffs. The Huskies ended last season with nine players, but start

this season with more than double that. MCI has only one senior, so the Huskies will look to build both the team and the individual player skills this spring. Mt. View went from 3-13 in 2009 to 2-14 last spring. The Mustangs are looking for better showings against the league’s top teams behind pitcher Hailey Giggey and four-year starter Channing Murphy. Coach Mike Gagnon was also impressed with freshman Shaniah Gilley, a standout athlete who could be the starting catcher.

Experience in short supply in MVC Local teams are young, will look to gain experience BY MATT DIFILIPPO Staff Writer

T

he quote is from Mt. Abram coach Jeff Pillsbury, but it might as well be from any local softball coach in Western C. “There’ll be some growing pains,” Pillsbury said of his team. “We’ve got a lot of potential, but we’ve got a lot of work to do.” If Pillsbury feels that way, you can imagine how the other coaches feel. Mt. Abram has four seniors, which is not only the most of any of the six local teams in the Mountain Valley Conference, it’s more than Madison, Monmouth and Winthrop — combined. While pitcher Kayla Merrill makes Telstar the favorite in Western C, the rest of the region is more muddled. The North division is especially balanced. “Our division, there’s probably two teams that could compete in the playoffs and probably won’t even go,” Pillsbury said. “So we’re going to be scrapping just to get into the playoffs.” Mt. Abram won 10 games last year, but four of them were nailbiters, including an 11-10 playJay. The off win over Roadrunners had a great left side of the infield last season in third baseman Kylie Rolbiecki and shortstop Jillian Withee, but both have graduated. Those two positions will be a focus for Mt. Abram throughout preseason. Monmouth is a pretty safe bet to post a winning record each year, but the Mustangs have not advanced past the quarterfinals since 2008. Although there are only two seniors on the roster, there are a total of nine returning players, which gives Monmouth more varsity experience than most teams in the area. Madison has no seniors and three juniors this year, but two of those juniors, shortstop Nathalie Michaud and catcher Kayla Belanger, are proven hitters. In the circle, Madison will go with a combination of sophomore Kayla Booker and freshman Emily McKenney. “Both are quality pitchers,” Madison coach Al Veneziano said. “They both work very hard at it. I think they’ll do a fine job.” That’s pretty much the story of the team this season.

Staff file photo by Joe Phelan

BACK IN ACTION: Hall-Dale catcher Carylanne Wolfington is one of just five players returning to a Hall-Dale team that won 12 games last season. Veneziano likes the talent on hand, but says it just needs game experience. After winning 12 games with a senior-laden lineup last spring, Hall-Dale has only five returning players this year. Three players have been on the roster for more than one year — senior shortstop Kayla Barton, senior center fielder Kelsey Wright and junior catcher Carylanne Wolfington. “We’ve got some great young players, and three upperclassmen with a lot of experience to build around,” Hall-Dale coach Dave Kaplan said. “We’re going to lean on the two seniors and the junior pretty hard. They’re expected to shoulder quite a load.” Carrabec had some superb games last season when the Cobras seemed to have their pitching, hitting and fielding all working together. They couldn’t quite get enough of them to earn a playoff spot, and they’ll look for that this year as they face a tough schedule. Eight of Carrabec’s 17 players are freshmen, but a lot of them

are showing promise, such as catcher Brooklyn Lewis. Ashlee Knight will play one of the corner infield positions, and the middle infield of second baseman Becca Bergeron and shortstop Kara Hebert is a big strength for the Cobras. Offensively, Carrabec may play more of a small-ball style this Pitchers Courtney spring. Turner and Lacey Fenlason have both shown moments of brilliance in the past and will look to get into a groove. Winthrop was playing quite well at the end of last season, and the Ramblers will look to pick up from that point this spring. Sasha Flaherty is the only senior, but there are 10 freshmen on the roster, and there were years in the past when Winthrop had trouble finding 10 softball players, period. Meagan Scully led the Ramblers in hitting last season, and junior Amy Belanger is a capable No. 1 pitcher. Second baseman Alison Sekerak leads the defense, and coach Sean Scully said it’s nice to have the

depth that comes with an 18player roster. “I’m seeing a very good bunch

of aggressive young ballplayers,” Scully said. “I’m just seeing a lot of positive things for this year.”

Richmond ready for run at repeat Bobcats have majority of roster back after winning Class D title BY MATT DIFILIPPO Staff Writer

R

ichmond is almost a fixture in the Western D softball final. The Bobcats are certainly favored to get there again this year. They have two returning pitchers: Leandra Martin, who went 70 last spring, and Jamie Plummer, who was 6-1 and won the Western D final. Martin wore two knee braces last year, but is down to one and throwing well. Offensively, Richmond was good enough last year to score 33 runs in three playoff games, and the core of that lineup is back. “Theoretically, we should have better hitting this year than last, and we were a good hitting team last year,” Richmond coach Rick Coughlin said. Tara Hurley was one of Richmond’s top hitters last season, and her sister Danica can hurt opponents with her speed. Catcher Lindsy Hoopingarner should also be a big contributor at the plate. “A lot of kids have gone down to Portland for batting practice and so forth,” Coughlin said. Still, with all the talent on hand, Coughlin does caution that this will not always be an easy ride. He took time to remind the players that, as defending state champions, they will get everyone’s best game — especially in the playoffs. “As long as we don’t get compla-

cent...,” Coughlin said. “In essence, you have to work twice as hard.” Rangeley’s new coach is Ashley Quimby, a former three-sport standout for the Lakers. The Lakers have nine returning players, including outfielder Allie Hammond, who missed all of basketball season with a knee injury. “They’re hoping by the beginning of May, she should be ready to go,” Quimby said. “She’s a huge asset, not only on the field, but leadership-wise.” Quimby is emphasizing fun, and the Lakers should also be competitive. One interesting note is that the Lakers two catchers — Taylor Bean and Seve DeeryDeRaps — are both eighthgraders. “They both caught last year in middle school,” Quimby said. “I really had no other girls who were interested. They both stepped up and are working really hard. It’s been good for us.” Valley also has a new coach. Scott Laweryson, an assistant under former coach Robin Lindeman, takes over the program. Despite a school enrollment of well under 100 students, the Cavaliers have 19 players on their roster, including seven seniors. While not quite at the level of perennial co-powers Richmond and Buckfield, Valley is consistently competitive, and that should be the case again this season. Cindy Schultz is back after sitting out last season, and she’s one

of three pitchers, along with Kirsten Mathieu and Teagan Laweryson. Coach Laweryson said he hasn’t decided yet how he will allocate the innings between the pitchers. After finishing 0-14 last season, Forest Hills brings back a lot of experience. The Tigers have 13 players on their roster, and their new coach is a familiar one: Ernie Giroux, who coached the Tigers for 15 years before retiring after the 2009 season. “I missed coaching softball,” said Giroux, who turns 72 this summer. “I really missed it, big

time.” Pitcher Erica Turner is a sophomore, and catcher Dana McNally is a freshman, but both held those jobs last season. “I think Dana could be the best catcher I’ve ever had,” Giroux said. “She’s very athletic and she’s got a great arm.” Cleanup hitter Kaila Achey will probably be the biggest bat in the lineup. Even after last season’s frustration, Giroux said the players are pumped up and ready to go. “You can feel the excitement,” Giroux said. “They want to be out

there playing ball.” Kents Hill lost most of its starting lineup to graduation, but coach Meg Bennett is so excited about the newcomers she feels the Huskies will be in contention for their third straight Maine Association of Independent Schools Athletic Directors title. “This is an athletic team with good pitching and catching and a strong defense to back it up,” Bennett said. “Offensively, we have power hitters and small ball players with speed that should make things exciting.”

Ready for another run at glory Waterville poised to defend title after dominant performance BY BILL STEWART Staff Writer

W

aterville Senior High School coach Ian Wilson says it will be difficult for his team to duplicate last season’s dominant performance. The Purple Panthers won the state title with a whopping 168 points. York was second with 94.

2010 STATE CHAMPS Class A: Scarborough Class B: Waterville Class C: John Bapst Waterville is still plenty good enough to contend for what would be its fifth consecutive Class B state championship. “The girls team was so dominant last year that no one was close to them,” Wilson said. “It’s hard for me to believe that we will be better than last year, but we will try.” Hall-Dale, meanwhile, hopes to contend for the Mountain Valley Conference title thanks to a strong core of returning talent. Abby Mace and Maranacook, as well as Winthrop, should contend in Class C. In Class A, Lawrence, Messalonskee, Mt. Blue and Cony hope to make a little noise in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference as well. Class B: Waterville crushed the field at the Class B state championship meet last year, besting York by a whopping 74 points. The Panthers return plenty of talent, including Olivia Thurston, Bethanie Brown, Courtney Williams and Alexa Frame. Thurston and Brown are coming off strong indoor seasons. Thurston broke the state record in the 400-meter run while Brown won a pair of events. Newcomer Georgia Bolduc should make an immediate impact in the sprints, as well. “They have high expectations of themselves,” Wilson said. “They expect to win.” Winslow, with yet another deep squad, could challenge Waterville in the KVAC. The Raiders have more than 40 athletes out and should be well-covered in all the events. “We’re definitely going to be there at KVAC’s,” Winslow coach Shawn Carey said. “We’ll be

noticed. I won’t say we’re going to win it, but we’ll be there.” Kelsea Bouchard (sprints), Emily Farrell (distance, jumps), Lauren Schassberger (distance), Riley Jones (race walk), Ferry (throws), Elizabeth Christine Parrilli (hurdles and jumps), and Alliyah Veilleux (sprints) should all score well this spring for the Raiders. Gardiner, despite fielding a small team, features a few individuals who could shine at the conference and state meets. Annie Schide finished fourth in the race walk at the Class B meet last year while teammate Olivia Reny had three top-10 finishes — the long jump, 100 hurdles and 100 dash. “We have a good strong nucleus that we’ve had for the last three years,” Gardiner coach Eric Hall said. Mt. View, Nokomis and Erskine should all field competitive teams again, as well. Class C: Bri Crisci and Kristy Fredette lead a talented HallDale team. Crisci won the 200 and finished second in the 100 at the Class C meet last spring. Fredette should fair well in the throwing events, as will Sara Price in the hurdles. Price finished second in the 300 hurdles at the Class C meet last year. “We have the real potential to be MVC champs,” Hall-Dale coach Kristen Davis said. “We are strong right across the board. We have a solid team. We envision great things from Bri. Fredette has great skills in the throwing events and Price can dominate the hurdles. Hopefully, they will lead the way to get us some points.” Maranacook, thanks to Mace, should also be in the mix. Mace won the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 at the Class C meet last spring and is one of the top distance runners in the state. Coupled with Maddie Nazar (jumps and sprints), and the Black Bears should field another strong team. Mace is dealing with a knee injury and could miss some time early in the season. “We have some real strength coming back,” Maranacook coach Ronn Gifford said. “We have a good core coming back. I think we’ll be very competitive. We have that early energy.” Winthrop returns a strong core of distance runners, led by Anna Doyle, Grace Burnett and Sarah Warner. Karen Rice, the defend-

Carrabec, led by Felicia Landry (throws) and Sikwani Dana (distance), should be strong as well. Maine Central Madison and Institute, Monmouth also should improve. Class A : Cony sophomore Lindsey Folsom returns as one of the top pole vaulters in the state. She won the event at the Class A meet last season. She also won the KVAC and state titles in the event during the indoor season. “She’s a top performer in her event,” Cony coach Jon Millett said. Erin Bolduc (hurdles and jumps) should also contribute for the Rams. Meg Collier (distance) and Jane VanDerKarr (jumps) lead Messalonskee, while Lawrence coach Tim Alberts said his team could crack the top five in the conference. The Bulldogs, led by Sara Quimby (jumps), Khristina Craig (throws) and Sasha Letourneau (sprints), finished sixth at the

KVAC meet last season. “I do have high hopes for the girls,” Alberts said. Mt. Blue coach Kelley Cullenberg said the Cougars are more “well-rounded” this season.

Gwen Beacham (distance), Allison Brown (sprints), Emily Reed (race walk) and Addie Cullenberg (middle-distance) pace Mt. Blue. “We are a much more versatile team,” Cullenberg said.

Time to take the next step Waterville, Maranacook among contenders for state titles and Edward Little are once again the KVAC A favorites. Harlow Ladd, one of the top distance runners in the state, returns for Messalonskee. He finished seventh in the 1,600 and 10th in the 3,200 at the Class A meet last spring. He suffered an injury early during the indoor season and will ease his way into the spring. “He’ll do quite well this year, but we won’t push him early,” Messalonskee coach Scott Wilson said. Josiah White (sprints) and Ken Zahner (throws) lead Lawrence. “We still know we have areas that we just don’t have the competitors,” Lawrence coach Tim Alberts said. Mt. Blue for the first time in several years had a high turnout of football players, which gives it depth in the throwing events. “We have a lot of potential,” Mt. Blue coach Kelley Cullenberg said. Last spring, Cony finished third in the KVAC A meet and fifth at the state meet. Julian Hubbard (jumps), Connor Dufour (sprints), Will Lundquist (distance) and Luke Dang (sprints) should perform well this spring. “When it comes down to the KVACs we could be back up at the top again,” Cony coach Jon Millett said.

aterville Senior High School has come ohso-close to winning the Class B state championship the last two seasons, finishing second in 2009 and third last spring. The Panthers, buoyed by an eye-popping turnout of 63 boys, have enough talent and depth to win their fourth state title in six years.

2010 STATE CHAMPS Class A: Brunswick Class B: Falmouth Class C: Sacopee Valley “We’re more talented and deeper than what we were last year,” Waterville coach Ian Wilson said. “I really like this team. We have a lot of athletes out.” Maranacook also returns a deep squad that should contend for the Class C title. Hall-Dale, Winthrop and Monmouth should also be in the mix. In Class A, Cony hopes to build off a strong finish last season, in which it finished third in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference and fifth at the state meet. Class B: The Panthers finished a distant third to Falmouth at the Class B state meet last spring, but they return a loaded team this season. Isaiah Spofford is coming off a dominant indoor season, in which he won the 55-meter dash and triple jump titles. He is joined by Alex Rowe (jumps), Nick Margitza (jumps), Jeff Hale (distance) and Darien Acero (jumps), who are expected to score well this spring. Rowe finished second to Spofford in the 55-meter hurdles at the indoor meet, and the Panthers finished second to Falmouth. “I think we gained an awful lot of talent off the winter teams,” Wilson said. “My hope is they give us enough firepower to make up the difference on Falmouth.” Erskine and Winslow could challenge Waterville. The Eagles came close last season and feature another deep team this season, led by distance runner Eben Hodgkins. He fin-

eight points at the Class C meet. The Black Bears return Evan Vincent (race walk), Taylor Watson (sprints, hurdles) and Harry Lanphear (throws). “They will be the leaders of the team,” Maranacook coach Ronn Gifford said. “We’re looking for big seasons out of them. We’ll cover all the events pretty well.” Watson, who is recovering from a back injury, won the 110 hurdles and 300 hurdles at the Class C meet last spring. Lanphear won the shot put and Vincent was second in the race walk. Travis Hutchins returns for Winthrop and should be one of the top throwers in the Mountain Valley Conference. He is the defending state champ in the discus. Elsewhere, Matt McClintock, another top distance runner in the state, leads Madison while Maine Central Institute senior Colby Patterson will look to win a state title in the 400. McClintock is the Class C cross country state champ. “We expect to see him come into his own,” Madison coach Bob Hagopian said. Monmouth, led by a strong core of distance runners, should also contend in the MVC. Carrabec and Valley will field deeper teams this season, as well, giving them reason to be optimistic.

IMPACT PERFORMER: Waterville Senior High School’s Isaiah Spofford is the defending Class B state champ in the 100- and 200meter runs. He’ll lead a Waterville team that hopes to contend for the state championship. ished third in the 3,200-meter run at the outdoor championship meet last spring. “We expect a big year,” Erskine coach Chris Bennett said. “We are well-covered and we have depth in the distance and depth in sprints, which we didn’t have last year. A lot of the seniors and juniors are pretty hungry. I’m not sure if the underclassmen understand how good we are.” Jarrod Lenfest (distance), Zach Lee (sprints), Zach Peaslee (jumps) and Aaron Taylor (sprints, throws) should con-

We’ve pulled a lot of top athletes from other sports and a lot of them have been together since the seventh grade. Hopefully, it comes to fruition this year and we make it to the state game.” The Eagles went 10-4 last season. The only teams to beat them were Eastern A champion Portland and Brunswick. Messalonskee has a strong group returning from last season, including attacker Nate DelGiudice, a first-team Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class A selection who scored over 30 goals last season. The Eagles do have a freshman in goal, Jake Smith, but have a strong unit in front of him, led by Josh Smith. “We’ve got a freshman goalie, but I do have all of my starting ‘D’ back,” Sheridan said. “We are only replacing three starters from last year.” The Eagles are also strong in the midfield, with Keenan Knox, Cam Douglas and Jacob Erskine all returning. The Mt. Blue boys moved back up to Class A last season and struggled after losing 10 players from the 2009 team to graduation. The Cougars are playing under a new coach this year, John McDonough, who wants to change his team’s style of play. “Mt. Blue has always been known as the physical team,” McDonough said. “I’m trying to

get them past that. I use a reference like Maine Maritime Academy. They may not be the best team, but they are in such good shape they can play with a lot of people. If you can run, you can stay in a lot of close games.” The Cougars lost some talented players, but return a good group of midfielders. Griffin Conlongue leads the offense. The Cony boys, meanwhile, hope to build off the lesson they learned last season. The Rams lost some talented defensemen from a year ago, but many of the returners played significant minutes last spring. In Class A girls, the Cony girls return the tools to remain competitive in Eastern A. The Rams finished 8-5 last spring, losing in the Eastern A semifinal. “We are pretty versatile,” Cony coach Gretchen Livingston said. “I think most of these girls could play anywhere and almost all of them likely will be asked to.” Livingston thinks the Rams will be solid defensively, with a group led by Julie Arbour, Heather Leet and goalie Katrina Duncan.

girls The Messalonskee knocked Cony out of the playoffs last season and return a good deal of talent this season. The Eagles should be strong offensively, led by attackers Abbey Stacey, Maddie Kadnar and Amy Jose. Ally Delisle and Ali Omsberg will also help generate offense from their midfield positions. “I believe that we will be very strong competitors,” first-year coach Katie Messalonskee Gorham said. Locally, Class B boys has a new addition in Maranacook/Winthrop. The cooperative team has been a club team, the Kennebec Cannons, the last few years and will play in Eastern B this spring. “One wildcard might be (Maranacook/Winthrop), they have some good athletes,” Gardiner coach K.C. Johnson said. “They will make an impact.” Maranacook/Winthrop is led by attacker Luke Emery, who has an impressive shot, according to coach Jared Knowlton. “He has one of the fastest shots I’ve ever seen,” Knowlton said. “It

makes our goalies tremble.”

Gardiner just missed the playoffs last spring but did win the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B title game. The Tigers have a strong group returning, including goalie Peter Williamson and midfielder Dalton Eldridge, who were both named all-conference first-team selections. Steve Cobb takes over at Oak Hill and has a strong group of defensemen returning. He will start a freshman, Bailey Beaulieau, in goal, but has three seniors (Will Aronson, Nick Wells and Zach Surette) playing in front of him. The Gardiner girls reached the playoffs last spring and return a strong group of players from that team. Becca Paradee and Jen Day lead the offense, scoring a combined 95 goals in the last two seasons. Kaylee Heath returns to lead the defensive unit, while Hayley Thibeau moves from goalie to attack this season. “I think we’ll do very well,” Gardiner coach Sharon Gallant said. “After this year, we’ll have a building year. They are very competitive and work great together.” The Kents Hill boys, who won the Maine Association of Independent Schools Athletic Directors title two years ago, are young but gained valuable experience last season. The Kents Hill girls are also young, with veteran Maya Bentley returning in goal.

Player to watch

Nate DelGiudice Jr., Messalonskee A first-team all-conference selection, DelGiudice had over 30 goals last season for the Eagles.

Becca Paradee Sr., Gardiner A first-team all-conference selection, Paradee has 53 goals in the last two seasons.

Luke Emery Jr., Maranacook An attack with an impressive shot, Emery leads a first-year team that could make an instant impact.

BOYS TENNIS Coach: Jeff Fowler (1st season) Last season: 5-7 Top returners: Max Hutchinson (Jr.), Robert Swain (Jr.), Key newcomers: Garrett Raymond (Jr.), Dallas Clark (So.), Ean Rouillard (So.) Outlook: Fowler takes over a team he says is in a rebuilding year. Only two players return from the varsity team last season and neither started consistently. Coach’s comment: “We are a little short on experience but our players are athletic and most importantly, coachable.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Carol Patenaude (6th season) Last season: 10-2, last in Eastern Class A semifinals Top returners: Alli Chase (Jr.), Elizabeth Cote (Sr.), Taylor Edmondson (Sr.), Melanie Guzman (Jr.), Nicole Kirschner (Sr.), Kirsten Pietri (Sr.), Kiersten Bumford (Jr.), Bethany Elwell (Jr.), Alison Guzzetti (So.), Alison Zubrod (Sr.) Key newcomers: Molly Daniel (So.), Katie Guzman (Fr.), Meghan Jellison (So.), Alexsandra Orio (So.), Maggie Priest (So.), Erin Whitney (So.) Outlook: The Rams will be lead by Edmondson and Kirschner. Patenaude had 36 players come out this spring. Chase and Melanie Guzman return as a solid doubles team. Patenaude likes her team’s overall athletic ability and how coachable they are. Coach’s comment: “Many of the girls are working hard to improve their game. This should be a fun season. I feel fortunate to coach such a fine group of young women.”

Coach: Jon Millett (1st season) Last season: 12th in Class A, 4th in KVAC Top returners: Kaitlyn Marks (Sr., sprints, middle-distance), Lindsey Folsom (So., pole vault), Corey Lim (Sr., hurdles), Leah Howard Berry (So., throws), Erin Bolduc (So., hurdles, jumps) Key newcomers: Sarah Smith (Fr., middle-distance), Leyna Toby (So., throws) Outlook: Folsom returns as one of the top pole vaulters in the state. She is the defending Class A state champ in the event, in which she cleared 10-foot-3 last spring as a freshman. She cleared 11-3 to win the event at the Class A indoor championships. Bolduc should also perform well this spring. She finished sixth in the 300 hurdles at the Class A meet last spring. Coach’s comment: “I think we’ll be competitive throughout the season. We’ll try to build toward the KVACs and see how we fare.”

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Jon Millett (1st season) Last season: 5th in Class A, 3rd in KVAC Top returners: Julian Hubbard (Jr., jumps), Cody Paulin (Jr., jumps), Connor Dufour (Sr., sprints, middle-distance), Will Lundquist (Sr., distance), Luke Dang (So., sprints), Sam Birch (So., throws) Key newcomers: Thon Phasathon Itthipalakorn (Jr., sprints), Norton Revell (So., pole vault) Outlook: The Rams challenged for the KVAC title last spring, but lost several key athletes to graduation. Millett expects Dufour and Hubbard to score well this spring. Hubbard finished fifth in the high jump at the KVAC A meet last spring. Luke Dang was part of the team’s title-winning 4x100 relay team last spring and should anchor the sprinting events this season. Coach’s comment: “We should be competitive in the KVACs. We have a shot at winning some meets this year. I think we can be at the top.”

BASEBALL Coach: Don Plourde (2nd season) Last season: 15-3, lost in Eastern A semifinal Top returners: Nick Lucas (Sr., 3B), Luke Duncklee (Sr., OF-P), Colin McKee (Sr., P-SS), Corey Lapierre (Sr., 1B), Ryan Edwards (Jr., P-2B), Zac Lachance (So., P-2B) Key newcomers: Joe Whittier (Sr., OF), Carter Weiss (Sr., OF), Simon Yorks (Jr., OF), Jake Harriman (Jr., C), Matt Swan (Jr., C-INF), Chase Shostak (Jr., C), Tyler Lewis (So., P-1B), Chandler Shostak (So., P-Util) Outlook: The Rams lost most of their pitching and power but should be among the contenders in the East based on the return of Duncklee, Lucas, McKee and Lapierre. Edwards and Lachance each saw action on the mound last season and will move into prominent roles this spring. Chandler Shostak and Lewis are battling for the third spot in the rotation while Duncklee and McKee are expected to pitch in relief. Lapierre gives Cony a power bat from the left side. Coach’s comment: “We don’t have the pop we had last year so we’re going to have to do things differently, but I’ve liked what I’ve seen so far.”

SOFTBALL Coach: Rocky Gaslin (7th season) Last season: 14-4, lost in Eastern A semifinals Top returners: Elizabeth Barker (Sr., RF), Allison Cote (Sr., 1B), Suzannah Deeves (Sr., CF), Morgan Jones (Sr., LF), Laina Younes (Sr., 3B), Alyssa Brochu (Jr., 2B), Cecilia Fuller (Jr., LF), Nicole Rugan (Jr., C), Emily Soule (Jr., P), Jenna Howard (So., P), Molly Russell (So., SS) Key newcomers: Mackenzie Stevens (Jr., OF), Allison White (Jr., C), Olivia Deeves (Fr., 3B), Alyssa Dennett (Fr., SS), Maggie Russell (Fr., IF) Outlook: Cony lost to eventual regional champion Bangor in last year’s semifinals, and returns three first-team all-conference players in Rugan, Soule and Suzannah Deeves. Soule will do most of the pitching, and she’s one of the best in Eastern A. The Rams should be solid both offensively and defensively. Coach’s comment: “We have most of the same team coming back. Our kids are a little stronger this year, a little more mature. We have a real nice group of girls that are willing to work.”

BOYS LACROSSE

GIRLS LACROSSE

Coach: Chad Foye (2nd season) Last season: 0-12 Top returners: Colby Carolin (Sr., A), Ryan Hernandez (Sr., D), Keenan Tilsley (Sr., D), Ricker Wells (Sr., D), James Fongemie (Sr., G), Stewart Emery (Sr., A), Dakota Bowie (Jr., MF), Derek Elvin (Jr., A), Kyle Elvin (So., MF), Sam Hopkins (So., MF), Dayshawn Roberts (So., MF), Brandon St. Michael (So., D), Mike Luber (So., G) Key newcomers: Ian Gingras (Fr., D), Frank Cicia (Fr., A), Levi Mason (Fr., D) Outlook: The Rams lost some key defensemen, but have a number of players back who gained experience last season. Foye, new to the game, has learned along with his team, and hopes Cony can continue to grow as a program. Coach’s comment: “They are working really hard. We have a lot of kids who gained experience last year. Hopefully, we can move forward from there.”

Coach: Gretchen Livingston (4th season) Last season: 8-5, lost in Eastern A semifinals Top returners: Hayley Lachance (Sr., A), Kasey Lee (Sr., MF), Brooke Logan (Sr., A), Brianna Yates (Sr., MF), Julie Arbour (Jr., D), Chelsea Begin (Jr., MF), Mia Diplock (Jr., C), Katrina Duncan (Jr., G), Heather Leet (Jr., D) Key newcomers: Crystal Clark (Jr., D), Josie Lee (So., MF), Michelle Bolduc (Jr., A), Erica Burns (Jr., D), Renee Dugal (Jr., D), Sydney Farrin (Jr., A), Kaitlin Labbe (Jr., MF) Outlook: The Rams are coming off a successful season, but lost four of their top scorers. They should have the tools to compete again this season, as their program continues to grow. Coach’s comment: “We are pretty versatile. I think most of the girls could play anywhere and most of them are likely to do so. Defensively, we should be quite solid.”

GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD

Coach: Chris Bennett (1st season) Last season: 25th in Class B, 13th in KVAC Top returners: Marissa Bovie (Sr., distance), Brittany Sherman (Sr., sprints), Kay Hanson (So., sprints), Brittany Doughty (So., sprints), Marissa Jordan (So., sprints), Casey Alexander (Sr., throws) Key newcomers: Jade Canak (Fr., jumps), Bridget Humphrey (So., Sprints), Kelly McCormac (So., sprints), Sarah Basham (Fr., distance), Becca Reed (Fr., distance) Outlook: The Eagles struggled a bit last season but should be competitive in the KVAC thanks to a strong group of returners. Sherman returns as a strong sprinter while Bovie leads the way in the distance events. Coach’s comment: “We’re getting stronger. We have some depth and have some high expectations.”

Coach: Chris Bennett (1st season) Last season: 6th in Class B, 2nd in KVAC Top returners: Eben Hodgkins (Jr., distance), Jarrod Lenfest (Sr., distance), Zach Lee (So., sprints, hurdles),Greg O’Connor (Sr., distance), Kevin Graham (Sr., distance), Ethan Bronson (So., distance), Zach Peaslee (Sr., jumps), Aaron Taylor (Sr., sprints, throws), Sean Gary (Sr., throws), Cameron Campbell (Sr., sprints), Cory Sprague (Sr., sprints), Cameron Reed (So., sprints), Greg O’Connor (Sr., distance) Key newcomers: Brian Potter (Sr., sprints), Erik Dodge, (Fr., distance) Outlook: The Eagles last season nearly pulled off a stirring upset over Waterville in the KVAC B meet, only to fall by 3.5 points. The team returns plenty of talent and is poised to challenge Waterville again this year. Hodgkins finished third in the 3,200 at the Class B state meet last season. Coach’s comment: “We have high expectations. We expect a big year. We are well-covered in all the events.”

BASEBALL Coach: Lars Jonassen (7th season) Last season: 1-15 in Class A East Top returners: Caleb Bragg-Grady (Sr., OF-P), Matt White (Sr., OF), Matt Potter (Sr., Util), Shyler Scates (Jr., P-INF), Tyler Belanger (Jr., P-1B), Jory Humphrey (Jr., P-1B), Brendan Wood (Jr., C), Sean Cabaniss (Jr., INF), Tom Grady (OF-P), Ryan Pulver (Jr., SS-P), Darrell St. Jean (Jr., OF-P) Key newcomers: Nathan Burns (Jr., OF-P), Nick Kothman (Jr., OF), Josh Bailey (So., 1B-P), Keith Cloutier (So., C), John Suga (So., INF). Outlook: With 11 returning players, including four pitchers, the Eagles are cautiously optimistic about having a break-through season. They’ve taken their lumps since moving back to Class A a couple of years ago. Despite their record, they played a number of close games last season and hope to win those this year. Belanger, Humphrey and Scates all saw significant time on the mound last year while Pulver is ready to move into the closer’s role. The defense is solid while hitting, a problem last season, is much improved. Coach’s comment: “We’re in a position now where we’ll compete on a daily basis.”

BOYS TENNIS Coach: Ryan Nored (9th season) Last season: 0-12 Top returners: Chase Drummond (Sr.), Zhong McClure (So.), Dan Holzwarth (So.) Key newcomers: Charlie Abbott (Sr.), Robert Robilliard (Sr.), Kelcy Thompson (Sr.), Jeremiah Simonsen (Jr.), Nathaniel Trask (So.), Dominic Pizzo (Fr.), Luis Roldan (Fr.), Richard Preston (Fr.) Outlook: Drummond, who is heading to West Point in the fall, will be the captain and is showing a lot of leadership in putting the team together. Three of the seven starters from last season are back and Preston looks promising, according to Nored. Coach’s comment: “My seniors are natural leaders and competitors. Chase, Charlie, Robert, and Kelcy will put in the time and effort it takes to make progress and eventually compete. My younger guys already emulate their work ethic and dedication and are showing improvement.”

GIRLS TENNIS

SOFTBALL Coach: Mike Soule (4th season) Last season: 12-6, lost in Eastern A semifinals Top returners: Danielle Burns (Sr., 3B), Jessica Souther (Sr., 2B/SS), Carleigh Wilson (Sr., 1B), Meryl Bond (Jr., C), Raven Carlezon (Jr., OF), Sonja Morse (So., P/1B) Key newcomers: Ashley Green (Jr., P/OF), Mikhaela Helm (Jr., OF/1B), Hannah Peabody (Jr., 2B/OF), Hattie Welch (Jr., 1B), Alyssa Gartley (So., P/OF), Alison Gauvin (So., C/1B/2B) Outlook: The Eagles will make a go again without pitcher Sam Morse, who now pitches for the University of Southern Maine. Soule said Gartley, Green and Sonja Morse could all pitch, or one could emerge as the No. 1 by opening day. Coach’s comment: “We’re going to have to put the ball in play. We’re going to have to put some runs across to be competitive.”

Coach: Shara MacDonald (8th season) Last season: 0-12 Top returners: Mallorie Rauch (Sr.), Bethany Burnhardt (Jr.), Emily Wood (Jr.), Emily Howard (Sr.), Emily Jordan (Sr.), Chrissy Begin (Jr), Nicole Glidden (Jr), Sierra Tjelmeland (Jr.), Marina Williams (Jr), Nichole Dutil (So). Key newcomers: Katelyn Balmer (Jr), Taylor Bailey (Fr.), Tasha Dutil (Fr.), Kathryn Fraser (Fr.), Danika Barnum (Fr.) Outlook: The Eagles have two solid singles players in Burnhardt and Wood. Turnout is never an issue for Erskine girls tennis and this year is no exception. Coach’s comment: “I have a wonderful group of young ladies that love working together and the game of tennis. I cannot wait to see what they are able to accomplish this year.”

He said there is a lot of optimism from the players despite last season’s record. There was still about two or three feet of snow on the field last week. Coach’s comment: “They’ve got a lot of enthusiasm. They really want to learn. They try as hard as they can.”

BASEBALL Coach: Mike LeBlanc (2nd season) Last season: 8-7, reached West D semifinals Top returners: Dylan McNally (Sr., C-P), Spencer Conrad (Sr., OF), Ethan Levesque (Jr., 3B), Evan Worster (So., SS-P), Derek Ouellette (So., 1B), Nathan Jalbert (Fr., OF), Tyler Lawrence (Fr., OF) Key newcomers: James McCall (Sr., OF), Karl Richter (Jr., UT), Anthony Carrier (Jr., OF), Matt Turner (8th, C-P), Brandon Ouellette (8th, IF), Thomas Haggan (8th, 1B-OF) Outlook: With two experienced pitchers, McNally and Worster, the Tigers should be able to stay competitive in Western Class D, where only four teams advance to the playoffs. McNally also will see time behind the plate. Conrad is one of the top returning hitters, along with Derek Ouellette. As always, Forest Hills will need contributions from younger players. The Tigers roster has three eighth graders this season. Coach’s comment: “We’ll be all right. We need to make the plays you should make. Spectacular plays don’t win games, the routine plays do.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Mark Biggs (7th season) Last season: 5-7, lost in Western B quarterfinals Top returners: Katrina Nikornpan (Sr.), Kaitlyn Turmelle (Sr.), Hannah Kavanaugh (Jr.), Broghann Fles (Sr.), Helen Mohney (Sr.), Hannah Luken (So.), Carly Rose (Jr.), Cristina Stade (Jr.). Key newcomers: Meryl Kus (Jr.), Meri Korhonen (Sr.), Bri Mosher (Fr.), Lydia Williams (So.), Outlook: Last year’s No. 1 singles player, Katie Schide, graduated and Nikornpan will be asked to fill that role this spring. Mohney played doubles last season and will likely move up to one of the three singles positions. Turmelle and Fles will likely be battling it out for the final single spot. Coach’s comment: “We lost a number of players from last year’s top seven, but I’m eager to see how the returning players will fill out our new top seven and especially our seniors.”

DIRECT DIAL SPORTS KENNEBEC JOURNAL — 621-5763 MORNING SENTINEL — 861-9167

Coach: Eric Hall (9th season) Last season: 19th in Class B, 7th in KVAC Top returners: Emily Staples (Sr., multi), Rebecca Woodard (Sr., sprints), Olivia Reny (Jr., sprints, hurdles), Annie Schide (Jr., race walk) Key newcomers: Emalee Couture (Fr., multi), Lee-Anne Greenleaf (Fr., multi), Haley Tomberlin (Fr., multi) Outlook: The Tigers lack the depth to contend for team titles this year, but they feature plenty of strong individual athletes. Schide finished fourth in the race walk at the Class B meet last season while Reny was seventh in the 100-meter hurdles. She was sixth in that event at the KVAC meet as well. Coach’s comment: “We have a good nucleus. We’re looking to have a good year.”

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Eric Hall (9th season) Last season: 13th in KVAC B Top returners: Nate Lapointe (Sr., jumps, sprints), Joey Thompson (Sr., throws), Cody Whitcomb (Jr., distance, jumps), Jordan Brown (Jr., middle-distance) Key newcomers: Dan Ross (Sr., multi), Alonzo Connor (Jr., sprints, throws), Eddie Donnell (Jr., throws), Jimmy Rose (Fr., multi), Bobby Rose (Fr., multi), Jeff Abram (Fr., multi), Ken Williams (Fr., multi), Trevor Quirion (Fr., multi) Outlook: The Tigers are young again this season but feature some key returners who should perform well. Lapointe is coming off a shoulder injury suffered in football season, but should perform well in the jumps and sprints. Also out this spring is Donnell, who suffered a leg injury in the football season. Coach’s comment: “We’ll be young, but we will try to build as many pieces as we can.”

GIRLS LACROSSE Coach: Sharon Gallant (3rd season) Last season: 8-5, lost in East B semifinals Top returners: Becca Paradee (Sr., MF), Jenn Day (Sr., A), Kaylee Heath (Sr., B), Caitlin Phillips (Sr., MF), Hayley Thibeau (Sr., A), Shauna Moulton (Sr., G), Paige Pillsbury (Jr., D), Brooke Davis (So.) Key newcomers: Ally Day (Fr., D), Kayla Reinaldi (Sr., MF). Outlook: The Tigers took a step forward in their growth as a young program, making the playoffs last season. Paradee and Jenn Day lead a strong attack and Reinaldi, a transfer from New York, should help immediately. Coach’s comment: “This is a very competitive group and they work great together. They have been the group that has been together since we started as a varsity program.”

BOYS TENNIS Coach: Rob Disch (15th season) Last season: 12-0, lost in Western B semifinals Top returners: Isaac Luken (Sr.), Justin Ladner (So.), Eddie Abbondazio (So.), Mitchell Chesley (So.), Andrew Roberts (So.), Sam Temple (So.) Key newcomers: Zibin Liu (So.), Alexander Roberts (So.), Raymond Sargent (Jr.), Christian Heath (So.) Outlook: The Tigers lost No. 1 singles player Jared Hornecker to graduation. The Tigers excelled in their first season competing in Class B last season, earning the No. 1 seed in the West and losing to eventual state champ Cape Elizabeth. The program will be in a rebuilding mode with Luken and Ladner moving up to take the top singles spots. Coach’s comment: “This year they are ready to step into the season. They’re enthusiastic and our goal is to develop them as players. I’m not worried about wins and losses this year. My goal is to get these guys playing and developing for the future.”

BOYS LACROSSE Coach: KC Johnson (13th season) Last season: 8-5 Top returners: Peter Williamson (Sr., G), Kaleb Smith (Sr., A), Dalton Eldridge (Sr., MF), Tyler Salley (Sr.) Key newcomers: Not available at press time Outlook: The Tigers missed the playoffs last spring, but won the KVAC B title game. They return a number of players from that team and should be competitive again. Williamson returns to lead an experienced defensive group. Coach’s comment: “I think we’ll still compete. We are a little young at midfield and we are experienced defensively.”

SOFTBALL

BASEBALL

Coach: Conrad Lewis (15th season) Last season: 10-8, lost in Eastern B quarterfinals Top returners: DeAnna Armstrong (Sr., OF), Cassie Snell (Sr., P/C/SS), Molly Snell (Sr., CF), Katie McAllister (Jr., UT), Jenna Moore (Jr., 1B/SS), Taylor Banister (So., 3B), Kelsey Moody (So., P), Steph Plourde (So., C/1B), Brittany Carver (So., OF) Key newcomers: Nicole Chadwick (Fr., IF), Camden Cone (Fr., IF), Katelyn Boyington (Fr., IF), Brittany Rollins (Fr., P) Outlook: This will be a different team with Ashley Abbott and Hannah Lawrence gone to graduation instead of turning nearly everything hit to the left side into an out. Moore and Armstrong head up what should still be a tight defense, and there are three solid pitchers on the roster. Coach’s comment: “Offensively, the three seniors that graduated were 75 percent of our offense, so that’s going to be something we have to concentrate on.”

Coach: Jim Palmer (11th season) Last season: 10-7 in Class B East Top returners: Spencer Allen (Sr. P-INF), Mike Phelps (Sr., C), Aaron Toman (Jr., 1B), Jake Palmer (Jr., CF), Brandon Chaput (Jr., LF), Josh Ouellette (Jr., P-INF), Dennis Meehan (So., INF-P) Key newcomers: Frank Chepke (So., OF), Ian Lane (So., INF-P), Hunter Belanger (So., INF-P), Zach Farrin (So., OF-P), Jensen Orweiller (So., C), Sam Tardiff (Sr., Util), Travis Kelley (Jr., 2B) Outlook: Allen gives the Tigers a solid No. 1 pitcher but after that they’re pretty inexperienced. Meehan and Ouellette are competing for the No. 2 spot while Toman and Lane are also in the mix. Palmer likes his team’s defense, especially up the middle. Phelps returns to catch while Meehan and newcomer Travis Kelly are middle infielders and Palmer is back in center. Ouellette, Palmer and Chepke all have excellent speed and will be part of a lineup that will manufacture more runs than in the recent past. Coach’s comment: “If we work hard and improve on a daily basis I think we’ll be right there.”

Crisci is the reigning Class C state champ in the 200 and also finished runner-up in the 100. Price finished second in the 300-meter hurdles at the Class C meet. Fredette returns as one of the top throwers on the team. Coach’s comment: “We are strong right across the board. We have a real potential to be MVC champs.”

BOYS TRACK Coach: Kristen Davis (1st season) Last season: 16th in Class C, 3rd in MVC Top returners: Tyler Fitzgerald (So., sprints), Michael Woods (So., middle-distance), Harry Cheung (So., distance), Calen Lapointe (Sr., distance), Monte Jones (So., throws), Josh Ringer (So., distance), Key newcomers: Sam Shepherd (So., jumps), Steven Longfellow (Fr., sprints, jumps), David Pierce (So., jumps, throws) Outlook: The Bulldogs received a boost with the addition of assistant coach Jarod Richmond, who comes over from Monmouth Academy. The team should be competitive in the MVC with Fitzgerald leading the way in the sprints. He finished sixth in the 100 at the MVC meet last season. Davis also expects newcomer Shepherd to produce as well. Coach’s comment: “We have some talent. I expect as good a year, if not better, than what we had last year.”

BOYS TENNIS Coach: Dan Bence (2nd season) Last season: 10-2, lost in Western C seminfinals Top returners: Daniel Klitgaard (So), Nicholas Messier (Sr.), Joseph Shagoury (Sr.), Spencer Shagoury (So.) Kevin Zembroski (Jr.) Key newcomers: Christopher Gudino (Sr.), Lukas Hjertquist (Sr.), James Longfellow (Sr.), Tyler Large (Jr.), Derrick Vigue (So.), Nicholas Bates (Fr.), Ryan Branscom (Fr.), Konnor Longfellow (Fr.), Joshua Peterson (Fr.) Outlook: The Shagoury brothers give the Bulldogs a dangerous combo. Last season, Hall-Dale suffered three losses, all to rival Monmouth. The Bulldogs should contend this spring. Coach’s comment: “I’m looking for the returners to get back to where they were when the season ended as soon as possible. Then we will add on more advanced skills. I’ll be happy if the kids learn about tennis and have a great time.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Guy Cousins (7th season) Last season: 10-2, Western Class C quarterfinals Top returners: Wendy Goldman (Jr.), Megan Daigle (Sr.), Whitney Wei (Sr.), Kathryn Wiederhorn (Sr.), Kerri Withee (Sr.), Shelby McGibney (So.), Jessica McKenna (So.) Key newcomers: Carly Beaudoin (So.), Michelle Pelletier, (So.), Anais Truman (So.), Maura Stottler (Fr.), Emily Loisel (Fr.), Olivia Welch (Fr.) Outlook: The challenge for Hall-Dale this year will be to overcome the loss of five of the seven starters from last season’s team. Goldman’s only losses last season were against Winthrop’s Kelsey Ouellette, who graduated. Goldman returns to play No. 1 for the Bulldogs for the third straight season. Wiederhorn and Withee are slated for the other two singles slots. Withee went 10-1 at No. 3 singles last season. Coach’s comment: “We are definitely in a rebuilding phase. We’ve got great kids and a great work ethic. Fitness is not an issue for us. It is just a matter of sorting out how to get some wins out of them.

Friday, April 15, 2011 | Kennebec Journal | Morning Sentinel | Special Supplement

BOYS TENNIS

BOYS LACROSSE

Coach: Pat McInerney (10th season) Last season: 11-0 Top returners: Dylan Rich (Jr.), Brendan Keating (Sr.), Tom Firstone (Sr.), Billy He (Sr.), Aaron Yang (Sr.), Sam Hall (So.), Kevin Bae (Jr.), Halsey Vandenberg (Sr.) Key newcomers: Robert Patenaude (Fr.) Outlook: Rich has a 25-1 record over the last two seasons and has won the MAISAD title both seasons. Firstone and Keating were MAISAD doubles champions last season and will be key pieces for Kents Hill this spring. Coach’s comment: “At this point I have no idea who will be playing singles other than Dylan, who will be our No. 1 singles player.”

Coach: John Brubaker (3rd season) Last season: 2-6 Top returners: Jared Cockrell (So., G), Ethan Pelletier (Sr., D), Miles Carey-Snow (Sr., MF), Ben Spencer (Jr., MF). Key newcomers: Cole Godfrey (Sr., A), Will Hoffman (Jr., MF), Ross Wicker (Sr., A). Outlook: The Huskies are a young team, but gained experience last season. Brubaker expects his midfield to be a team strength, thanks to a number of versatile players. Comment: “The fact that many of our younger players gained significant varsity playing experience last season should pay dividends.”

GIRLS TENNIS

BASEBALL

Coach: Jeff DeHaven (12th season) Last season: 6-4, MAISAD Champions Top returners: Mihona Yo (Jr.), Rosie Guimaraes (Sr.), Rachel Mitchell (Sr.), Temi Odimayo (Sr.), Lela Harrison (Sr.), Jay Kim (Sr.), Yuqi Chen (Sr.) Key newcomers: Elena Mandzhukova (Sr.) Outlook: Kents Hill returns seven players from last year's team that won the MAISAD championship and should dominate again this spring. Mandzhukova won the MPA singles title while playing for Brunswick last season. Guimares and Mitchell, who played No. 1 and 2 singles last season, will occupy the other singles spots. Coach’s comment: “The team had a great attitude and a lot of fun last year. All of the girls helped each other to improve as the season progressed. Because there are seven players returning from that team, I’m optimistic about the coming season.”

SCHEDULE

GIRLS LACROSSE Coach: Sarah Hunt (5th season) Last season: 2-8 Top returners: Thaney Cockrell (Sr., MF), Caroline Torterella (So., A), Maya Bentley (So., G), Becca Robinson (So., A) Key newcomers: Ashley Doyle (Fr., A). Outlook: The Huskies are a young team, with some players who gained experience a year ago. Bentley returns in goal to lead an inexperienced defense. Coach’s comment: “We have a number of new players this year but they are strong athletes and committed to the game.”

Coach: Jim Smucker (11th season) Last season: 6-7, won MAISAD title Top returners: Matt Hayes (Sr., P-1B), Chad Martin (So., INF), Dan Levy (Sr., INF), John McAleer (Sr., OF). Key newcomers: Matt Dalton (PG, SS), Andy Kebalka (So., P-INF), Matt Gibson (PG, C) Outlook: Last year the Huskies rebounded from a slow start and beat Hebron in the conference title game after losing twice to them in the regular season. The same could happen this year. Hayes returns as the team’s No. 1 pitcher while Martin is a solid fielder. Among the newcomers, both Dalton and Gibson are postgraduates as well as team captains and should have a big impact. Coach’s comment: “If the players continue to respect the game by improving fundamentals, learning game situations and learning how to compete, I am confident that the season will be a success.”

SOFTBALL Coach: Meg Bennett (8th season) Last season: 6-2, MAISAD champions Top returners: Katie Connelly (So., C/3B) Key newcomers: Katherine Bowie (Sr., P/1B), Jordan Finley (PG, 1B), Kiki Smart (PG, CF/P), Samantha Larrabee (Fr., SS), Marissa Tarrio (Fr., 2B/C), Mickayla Hartford (Fr., 3B/C) Outlook: Kents Hill has won the MAISAD title the last two years and will strongly contend again this season. Central Maine is well-represented, as Connelly is from Vassalboro, Larrabee is from Fayette and Bowie and Tarrio are from Augusta. Coach’s comment: “On paper, this is the strongest Kents Hill team that I have coached in the past four, five years.”

Coach: Tim Alberts (23rd season) Last season: 17th in Class A, 6th in KVAC Top returners: Sara Quimby (Sr., jumps), Khristina Craig (Sr., throws), Riley Gage (Sr., hurdles), Samara Garcia (Sr., distance), Sarah Heald (Jr., middle-distance, distance), Katie Dudley (So., hurdles, jumps), Sasha Letourneau (So., sprints), Myrilla Hartkotf (So., jumps, middle-distance), Erzabet Nagy (So, middle-distance, distance, pole vault) Key newcomers: Crystal Crowell (Fr.), Marissa Paquette (Fr., sprints, pole vault), Outlook: Quimby returns as one of the top point producers for the Bulldogs. She finished second in the high jump at the KVAC A indoor meet and is poised for a strong outdoor season. Craig was third in the shot put at the indoor meet. The Bulldogs have enough depth to stay near the top of the conference. Coach’s comment: “I have high hopes for the girls. I’d like to think we can be in the top five.”

Pitching is the Bulldogs’ strength. Blaisdell, Russell, Capponi, and Leathers each have varsity experience. Woodbury is a three-year starter behind the plate, and Champney saw time in the lineup last season. The addition of Scott makes an athletic team even more so, and the Bulldogs should contend for a playoff spot. Coach’s comment: “Pitching is our strength at this point, and I’d like to think we’ll be good defensively.”

LAWRENCE SOFTBALL Coach: Joey Marcoux (19th season) Last season: 4-12 in Eastern A Top returners: Alex Bickford (Sr., P), Danielle Dubois (Sr., 1B), Lisa Jordan (Sr., OF), Katelyn LaChance (Sr., OF/1B), Megan Miville (Sr., OF/2B), Krysta Pelletier (Sr., C), Jess Poulin (Sr., SS), Sophie Lindsay (Jr., 3B), Megan Moen (Jr., OF), Sierra Jackson (So., P), Sarah Martin (So., P) Key newcomers: Nicole Bowen (Jr., 2B/OF), Allison Blaisdell (So., C/2B), Alli Dyer (So., UT), Molly Moen (Fr., OF/3B) Outlook: The Bulldogs stayed in the playoff hunt despite a tough schedule last season, and are now looking to move up in the standings. Marcoux said the pitching situation is up the air, but whoever gets the ball will need to throw strikes. Coach’s comment: “We’re a really good defensive team, and we’re going to be aggressive at the plate.”

LAWRENCE BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Tim Alberts (23rd season) Last season: 8th in KVAC Top returners: Ken Zahner (Sr., throws), Josiah White (Sr., sprints), Jimmy Pershken (Sr., distance), Mike Zebiak (Sr., distance), Chris Bartch (Sr., sprints), Anthony Sementelli (So., sprints), Mason Travers (So., jumps), Drew Bois (So., middle-distance), Zac Blomerth (So., middle-distance, jumps) Key newcomers: Mark Yandian (Sr., sprints, jumps), Anthony Levasseur (Jr., sprints), Dakota White (Fr., sprints) Outlook: Lawrence should be competitive in the KVAC, although it will struggle to cover all the events. Zahner and White are coming off strong indoor seasons and should produce some points this spring. Zahner was sixth in the shot put at the Class A indoor meet. Pershken is the team’s distance runner and Travers should pick up where he left off last spring. Coach’s comments: “We know we have areas that we just don’t have the competitors. I am looking for us to do the best we can do.”

HALL-DALE CONTINUED FROM 24 HALL-DALE BASEBALL Coach: Steve Acedo (1st season) Last season: 8-6 Class C West Top returners: Ben Crocker (Jr., PSS), Brad Shepherd (Jr., C-1B), Ezra Jones (So., 2B-OF), Kurt Thiele (So., 1B), Nick Sinclair (So., P-1B), Wyatt Rush (So., P-OF) Zack McNaughton (So., OF), Matt Ford (So., P-OF). Key newcomers: Colin Lush (So., PINF), Taylor Lockhart (Fr., INF-P), Alex McPherson (Fr., C-OF). Outlook: The Bulldogs graduated six starters and don’t have a senior on their roster. Still, first-year coach Steve Acedo is optimistic. Crocker and Lush are battling for the top spot in the pitching rotation while Sinclair and Ford have looked good in preseason. Shpeherd takes over behind the plate. Coach’s comment: “We’re working the fundamentals. Especially with a young team we want to put a good foundation under them.”

HOME AGAIN: Carylanne Wolfington returns behind the plate this spring for the Bulldogs, who finished 12-4 last season.

Coach: Dave Kaplan (8th season) Last season: 12-4, lost in Western C semifinals Top returners: Kayla Barton (Sr., SS), Kelsey Wright (Sr., CF), Carylanne Wolfington (Jr., C), Natasha Brown (So., 1B/OF), Natasha St. Pierre (So., IF) Key newcomers: Meagan Cope (So., 3B/OF), Morgan Caron (So., UT), Courtney Pierce (So.), Laura Allen (So., P), Emily Maynard (Fr., IF/C), Elizabeth Benner (Fr., P/IF), Shanay Gilbert (Fr., IF/OF), Amara Truman (Fr., UT), Cheyenne Sioch (Fr., P/UT) Out|ook: Of the 19 players in the program, 10 are freshmen and six are sophomores. Kaplan would still like the Bulldogs to aim for a playoff spot. Allen will take over the pitching duties, and Wolfington’s experience should help there. Coach’s comment: “It’s going to be a challenge. I want to see us finish strong.”

A LONG DAY: Madison distance runner Matt McClintock finished third in the 1,600 and second in the 3,200 at last year’s Class C state meet. He is coming off a strong cross country season in which he won the Class C title and posted the fastest time in the state. Staff file photo by Joe Phelan

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Bob Hagopian (18th season) Last season: 9th in Class C, 2nd in MVC Top returners: Matt McClintock (Jr., distance), Colby Staples (Sr., hurdles), Kyle Foley (Jr., pole vault), Joe Hayden (Jr., throws), Alex Helderman (Jr., distance), Scott Mercier (Sr., middle-distance) Key newcomers: Chris Hayden (Fr., throws, pole vault), Ron Helderman (Fr., middle-distance), Kyle McCarthy (Fr., multi), Nate Gross (Jr., multi), Simon Morrow (Sr., multi) Outlook: McClintock is one of the top distance runners in the state. He is coming off a strong cross country season in which he won the Class C title and posted the fastest time in the state. He finished third in the 1,600 and second in the 3,200 at the Class C state meet last spring. Coach’s comment: “We have a pretty good team out. I think Matt will come into his own.”

GIRLS TRACK Coach: Bob Hagopian (18th season) Last season: 21st in Class C, 9th in MVC Top returners: Crystal DaCosta (Jr., throws, sprints), Brooke Freeman (Jr., pole vault), Mickella Laney (Sr., jumps), Hannah Emery (Jr., throws), Sam McLaughlin (Jr., hurdles), Jennifer Allen (So., throws), Kyrsta Moulton (Sr., racewalk), Allie McClintock (So., pole vault, distance), Brooke Emery (So., sprints, jumps), Key newcomers: Kaitlyn Bossie (Fr., jumps), Brianna OIiver (Fr., hurdles), Alyssa Smith (So.), Lianna Thebarge (So.), Sam Bruce (So.) Outlook: The Bulldogs return some scorers from a year ago, but lack depth to contend for team championships. Freeman is one of the top pole vaulters in the conference. She won the event at the MVC meet last season. Coach’s comments: “The people we have are all scorers. I feel we’ll go quite a ways.”

BASEBALL Coach: Scott Franzose (2nd season) Last season: 2-13 Top returners: Stephen Cusson (Sr., 3B-P), Stephen Day (Jr., OF-P), Travis Emerson (Jr., SS-P), Levi Tucker (Jr., 1B-P), Pat Magurn (Jr., OF), Dustin Henry (Jr., OF), Logan Cowan (Jr., OF), Garrett Emery (So., C-P), Rhett McKenney (So., 2B-SS-P), Jacob Johnson (So., OF) Key newcomers: M.J. Flanders (Fr., 2B-P), Dustin West (Fr., 1B-P), Kyle Dougeneck (Fr., 1B-OF-P), Nate Morales (Fr., OF) Outlook: The Bulldogs have no seniors this season, but Franzose expects leadership from a large junior class. Cusson looks to be the ace of the staff, and along with Day, Emerson and sophomore Emery form the team’s nucleus. Four freshmen could contribute immediately, Franzose said. Coach’s comment: “As long as we’re willing to do the little things, I think we could surprise some teams... The MVC is wide open this year.”

BOYS TENNIS

SOFTBALL

Coach: Ron Chillington (9th season) Last season: 8-4, lost in Western C semifinals Top returners: Devin Steuber (Sr.), Luke Klinker (Sr.), Nathan Richard (Sr.), Hunter Clark (So.), Andrey Fernandez (So.) Key newcomers: Josh Giris (Fr.), Justin Hadley (Fr.), Tahvo Korhonen (Fr.), Larz Moody (Fr.), Josiah Chapman (Fr.), Jordan Tranten (Fr.), Steven Lawrence (So.), Patrick Taribio (So.), Anthony Cipriano (So.), Ryan Turcotte (Sr.) Outlook: Madison has just two of its seven starters from last season back. Klinker will move up from No. 2 singles to No. 1, while Steuber will be asked to take on more of a leadership role, after playing on the No. 2 doubles team last spring. Coach’s comment: “I think the fact that we overachieved last year gives them the confidence to assume that we will make it to the playoffs this year. If we can make it into the semifinals and get to the private schools, I think we’ll have done well.”

Coach: Al Veneziano (17th season) Last season: 5-11, lost in Western C prelims Top returners: Nathalie Michaud (Jr., 3B), Kayla Belanger (Jr., C/IF), Annie Boss (Jr., 2B/OF), Sierra LeBlanc (So., 2B), Mykayla Smith (So., C), Kayla Booker (So., P/IF), Ericka Parker (So., OF), Cortney Taylor (So., 1B/OF) Key newcomers: Emily McKenney (Fr., P/1B), Kirsten Wood (Fr., SS/P), Alex Jarvais (Fr., 1B/OF), Jemeeka Martins (Fr., 2B/OF), Savanna Kandiko (Fr., C), Cristie Vicneire (Fr., IF/P), Tiffany Camire (Fr., OF), Kiley Plourde (Fr., IF), Haley Farrin (Fr., OF), Chelsea George (Fr., OF) Outlook: The Bulldogs would love an extended preseason, as they have 10 freshmen and five sophomores on their roster. But Veneziano said there is talent in each class, and the players are itching to play after a busy summer of softball last year. Coach’s comment: “The warm weather’s not coming quick enough for us, but every day in practice, they’re working hard and they’re learning the game at the varsity level. I can’t ask for anything more.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Travis Rogers (1st season) Last season: 3-9 Top returners: Jessica Theberge (Jr.), Lindsey Kandiko (Sr.), Logan Bruneau (So.), Brittany Horton (So.), Raeanne Curtis (So.) Key newcomers: Shelly Rackliff (So.), Miranda Carter (Fr.), Elizabeth Richardson (Fr.), Taylor Longstaff (Fr.), Misty Waters (Fr.) Outlook: Rogers has been coaching alongside Madison boys coach Ron Chillington the last three years. This spring he takes over the Bulldogs girls program. He inherits a fairly young team with only one senior and one junior. Coach’s comment: “I like our chances. I think we’ll make a run at least into the first round of the tournament. Jessica and Lindsey will be competing for the top spot and they’ll have a lot to do with regard to how far we can go this season.”

GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Ronn Gifford (6th season) Last season: 4th in Class C, 5th in KVAC Top returners: Abby Mace (Jr., distance), Maddie Nazar (Sr., jumps, sprints), Harley Graziano (Jr., race walk, hurdles), Alexis Cookson (Sr., race walk, sprints), Caroline Colan (So., distance), Deanna Morris (So., jumps, middle distance), Megan Hall (So., jumps, middle distance), Sydney Gilbert (So., jumps, middle distance), Samantha Cookson (So., throws), Hannah Clough (Jr., sprints), Shelby Potter (Jr., hurdles) Key newcomers: Kate Boyman (Fr., jumps), Nicole Cyr (Jr., throws), Elle Fenton-Hulett (Sr., sprints, jumps), Emma Gyorgy (Fr., jumps), Teeka Jackson (Jr., throws), Grace Kavanah (Fr., sprints, jumps), Mallory MacDonald (Fr., sprints, throws), Ellie Nazar (Fr., sprints, jumps), Abbey Santos (Sr., sprints, jumps), Nicole Castonguay (Sr., sprints), Outlook:The Black Bears should be in the hunt in Class C thanks to a strong returning cast, led by Mace and Maddie Nazar. Mace is the defending Class C state champion in the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 and is one of the top distance runners in the state. She is working her way slowly into the spring because of a knee injury, but should once again be poised to defend her titles. Nazar won the triple jump and finished third in the long jump at the Class C meet as well. Coach’s comment: “We have some real strength coming back. We have that early energy.”

MAKING THE TIMES: Evan Vincent, who is one of the top race walkers in the state, returns for the Black Bears this season.

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Ronn Gifford (6th season) Last season: 2nd in Class C, 3rd in KVAC Top returners: Harry Lanphear (Sr., throws), Evan Vincent (Sr., race walk, distance), Taylor Watson (Jr., hurdles, sprints), Luke Wenzel (Sr., distance), Kilton Webb (So., distance), Tristan Stockford (So., hurdles, sprints), Sam Neilson (So., jumps, hurdles), Andrew Lachance (So., throws), Brandon Guerrette (Sr., throws), Caleb Castonguay (So., sprints, pole vault), Jared DiouCass (Jr., jumps, sprints), Chase Gaewski (Sr., jumps, distance), Connor Lacasse (Sr., sprints, middle distance), George Mallen (Sr., sprints), Ian Perry (So., jumps, middle-distance), Breeze Rasmussen (Jr., pole vault, throws), Ryan Sansaricq (So., sprints), Korey Solmitz (Jr., sprints, throws) Key newcomers: Nick Barnes (Fr., jumps, hurdles), Andrew Bryant (So., sprints, jumps), Tyler DeAngelis (Sr., pole vault, distance), Chad Lee (So., race walk), Eric Manley (Jr., middle-distance), Carson Mitchell (Jr., distance, pole vault), Chris Pelletier (Sr., jumps), Levi Smith (Fr., race walk), Jason Stevenson (So., distance), Walker Thompson (Sr., middle-distance), Jon Varney (Jr., sprints) Outlook: The Black Bears should contend for the Class C title thanks to a deep and talented team. Vincent is among the top race walkers in the state while Lanphear and Watson are big point scorers as well. Watson is the defending Class C state champ in the 110 and 300 hurdle events. He is recovering from a back injury but isn’t expected to miss the end-of-the-year meets. Lanphear won the shot put and finished third in the discus at the C meet as well. Coach’s comment: “We are pretty well covered in all the events. We have some key points to fill in, but I think we can do it.”

MARANACOOK

| Kennebec Journal | Morning Sentinel | Special Supplement

GIRLS TENNIS

SOFTBALL

BASEBALL

Coach: Louis Gingras (1st season) Last season: 9-3, lost in Western B semifinals Top returners: Sarah Adams (Jr.), BreAnna Dunbar (Jr.), Adrienne Nel (Jr.), Hannah Colan (So.), Brittany Guerette (So.) Key newcomers: Ashlynn Williams (Sr), Rosey Ditre (So), Julieanna Scott (So), Amy Bley (Fr), Maddie Chiappetta (Fr), Victoria Nolette (Fr), Olivia Swimm (Fr), and Julia Varney (Fr). Outlook: Nel plays tennis year round and will be a valuable piece of the Black Bears this spring. She’ll move up from No. 3 to No. 1 singles this spring. Gingras is very pleased with the five freshmen and their long-term potential for the program. Guerette will also play a pivotal role for Maranacook this spring. Coach’s comment: “We’re just working on basic skills right now. I’m shooting for a .500 record this year. Adrienne will hold her own. She’s a pretty solid player but it’s a big step from third singles to first singles.”

Coach: Don Beckwith (2nd season) Last season: 16-3, lost in Western B final Top returners: Heidi Shaw (Sr., C), Katie Dore (Sr., 3B), Connor Weeks (Sr., 1B/3B), Sarah Boynton (Jr., P/1B), Jessie Smith (So., UT) Key newcomers: Sarah Brooks (Sr., UT), Nicole Smith (Jr., UT), Ashley Belanger (So., P/UT), Mariah Vining (So., UT), Kelsie Collins (Fr., UT) Outlook: Boynton was slated to take over as pitcher, but Beckwith said the cause of her wrist problems have not been diagnosed. If she can’t pitch, it will be Belanger, and Beckwith said she is also capable. Dore and Shaw give the Black Bears two of the top players in the league at their positions. Coach’s comment: “I think we’ll do all right. Our plan is we’ve got 16 games to get ready for four.”

BOYS TENNIS

BOYS LACROSSE

Coach: Mike Morin (11th season) Last season: 6-6, last in Western B quarterfinals Top returners: Sean Daigle (Sr.), Jason LaPorte (Jr.), Matt Surette (Jr.), Paul Joslyn (Jr.), Sam Bryant (Jr.), Jon Barrett (Jr.) Key newcomers: Tanner Webb (Jr.), Alec Daigle (Fr.), Kelby Mace (Fr.), Tommy Lanphear (Fr.), Alex Tooth (Fr.), Quintin Dion-Cass (Fr.), Sebastian Pettit (Fr.) Outlook: Daigle should claim the top singles spot again this year for the Black Bears. According to Morin, he became more competitive against top opponents as last season wore on culminating with a solid match in the playoffs against Gardiner’s Jared Hornecker. Juniors LaPorte and Surette will compete for the other two singles spots. Coach’s comment: “Daigle’s a good worker who gets good results. He’s got high expectations of himself. For the doubles teams, I think we’re going to be good. I got a few freshmen that can contribute immediately. I’m going to need six or seven players. We got some depth.”

Coach: Jared Knowlton (1st season) Last season: Played as a club team Key newcomers: Luke Emery (Jr., A/MF), Zach Bessette (Fr., D), Mitch Bessette (Sr., MF), Jon Dale (Sr., D), Kyle Evans (Jr., A/MF), Jesse Evans (So., A/MF), Gabe Giguere (Jr., A/MF), Dan Giguere (Jr., A/MF), Gray Hill (Jr., MF) Outlook: This first-year team could be a factor right away in Eastern B. Knowlton raves about the abilities of Emery, especially the attacker’s impressive shot. Maranacook/Winthrop had good success as the Kennebec Cannons and hopes to earn a playoff berth. Coach's comment: "I really think we can have a great year. Our defenders ... teams will have a hard time getting past them. I think we can have a great year and it would be great to see these kids get a playoff berth in their first year."

Coach: Jared Lemieux (1st season) Last season: 7-9 in Class B West Top returners: Greg Goucher (Sr., INF), Dakota Duplissie (Sr., SS), Ian Palmer (Jr., 1B-P), Eben Ballard (Jr., P-OF), Ryan Vanek (Jr. P-OF), Nate Johnson (Jr., OF). Key newcomers: Zack Elwell (So., OF-P), Cameron Guild (Jr., C), Caron Dalheim (So, INF), James Boyman (So., INF-OF), Matt Robinson (Sr., OF), Tucker Whitman (So., INF). Outlook: Lemieux, who played on two state championship teams at Maranacook, takes over as coach. He has a solid No. 1 pitcher in Ballard but the rest of the staff is relatively unproven. The returning players all played key roles last season and should make the Black Bears competitive. Guild takes over as catcher while Lemieux is counting on some of the other newcomers to contribute as well. Coach’s comment: “I’m excited about it. I think we have some guys who can step in and prove themselves.”

GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD

Coach: Jason Allen (8th season) Last season: 3rd in Class C, 10th in KVAC Top returners: Meghan Hughes (Sr., throws), Kayla Michaud (Sr., jumps, throws), Katie Cronkite (So., jumps, pole vault), Natasha Wallace (Jr., throws), Paula Arias (Jr., jumps, hurdles), Molly Raye (So., racewalk) Key newcomers: Erin Donahue (Jr., jumps, sprints), Chimene Goewey (Fr., multi), Hannah Wardwell (Fr., multi) Outlook: The Huskies return Hughes, who is one of the top throwers in Class C. She won the discus and shot put events at the Class C meet and should score well again this spring. MCI had a low turnout this spring, which Allen said could hurt come championship meet time. Coach’s comment: “I think the group of returners and newcomers will be very point-worthy for us. If we can get increased production we’ll be OK in the regular season.”

Coach: Jason Allen (8th season) Last season: 14th in Class C, 9th in KVAC Top returners: Colby Patterson (Sr., sprints), Jeff Paye (Sr., throws), Craig Reazor (Sr., jumps, pole vault), Trey Vintinner (Jr., hurdles, jumps), Joe Bowman (Jr., throws), Cameron Neal (Jr., race walk, pole vault), Jake McGowan (Jr., throws), Sammy Gachagua (Jr., racewalk, distance) Key newcomers: Will Cu (So., sprints), Nick Deng (Jr., sprints), Paul Campbell (Fr., multi) Outlook: The Huskies lack depth but do feature some individuals who should perform well at the conference and state meets. Patterson leads the way. He won the 400 at the KVAC meet and then finished third in the event at the Class C state meet. Reazor also had a strong season last spring. He finished fifth in the pole vault, and sixth in the long and triple jumps at the KVAC meet. Coach’s comment: “We certainly lack depth, but we have some individuals who can be outstanding.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Andy Beach (1st season) Last season: 0-12 Top returners: Proud Vidhayascrana (Sr.), Nan Praphatsorn Makmettakul (Jr) Key newcomers: Megan Fowler (Jr.), Kylee Alton (Jr.), Picabo Morrell (Jr.) Emily Hoting Fung (Jr.), Vy Dang (Jr.), Lina Linh Nguyen (Jr.) Outlook: Vidhayascrana will play at No. 1 for MCI this spring. An out-of-state transfer, Fowler will probably play No. 2. Fung and Makmettakul are paired up as a double team according to Beach. Coach’s comment: “It’s a lot of fun. The girls are having a good time. They are itching to get out there and play. We have a large group of girls who are working on basic skills. I think we’ll be competitive.”

SOFTBALL Coach: Nicole Steeves (2nd season) Last season: 8-8 in Eastern B Top returners: Brittney Glencross (Sr., SS), Alli Sinclair (Jr., P/OF), Meaghan Orchard (Jr., 2B/OF), Carolyn Newhouse (So., OF), Courtney Ouellette (So., OF), Kat Smedburg (So., C), Katelyn Sousa (So., IF), Victoria Drake (So., 1B/OF) Key newcomers: Taylor Wright (Jr., OF), Michaela George (Jr., OF), Hillary Maloon (Jr., 1B/OF), Alana Oliver (Jr., 2B/C/OF), Michaela Burns (So., IF/OF), Courtney Fowler (So., P/OF), Karissa Ballard (Fr., OF), Hayley Tibbits (Fr., 2B/OF), Brianna Losse (Fr., 2B/OF), Paige Topel (Fr., 3B/SS), Katelyn Tozier (Fr., 2B/SS), Hannah Emery (Fr., OF/P), Erika Potvin (Fr., OF) Outlook: This is clearly a young team, but Steeves should have much more flexibility than she did last season. After ending last spring with nine players, the Huskies had 26 try out this year. Sinclair and Fowler will both try to replace the loss of pitcher Mandy Kennedy to graduation, and both will also be key components of the offense. Coach’s comment: “This year, we’re able to play people in specific positions. Last year, I had to go with what I had.”

BOYS TENNIS Coach: Troy Barker (1st season) Last season: 2-10 Top returners: Vu Hoang (Sr.), Johan Han (Jr.), Krit Rujiralai (So.), Linh Tran (Jr.), Mike Hwang (Jr.), Wilbur Chu (Jr.) Key newcomers: Richard Kim (Sr.), Aaron Park (Jr.) Outlook: Even though it is Barker’s first season coaching tennis at MCI, he had success coaching tennis while working in Micronesia in the South Pacific. With six of seven starters returning, the Huskies should improve. Coach’s comment: “They are working hard and raised their fitness level a little bit. We’re just trying to develop consistency and good fitness. This year's team is showing a lot of enthusiasm and has great potential for a solid year. ”

BASEBALL Coach: John Dean (6th season) Last season: 1-15 Top returners: Ryan Crocker (Sr., P-SS), Yuya Izumi (Sr., 2B-P), Robert Cameron (Sr., C-OF), Jake Hutchinson (Jr., OF), Mason Lasselle (Jr., 1B), Zack Fortin (Jr., 3B), Adam Ogden (Jr., C), Rikito Watanabe (Jr., OF), Matt Lessard (So., 1B-P), Cameron Michaud (So., IF-P) Key newcomers: Tom Nguyen (So., OF), Cody Robbins (Fr., POF), Dylan Watrous (Fr., P-OF), Ryan Havey (Fr., OF), Jarrett Mitchell (Fr., OF) Outlook: The Huskies are young, but have some veterans in key spots. Crocker and Izumi have experience pitching, and Fortin, Ogden and Lasselle have varsity experience, too. The Huskies have just two wins over the last two seasons, and are looking to show steady improvement throughout the season. Coach’s comment: “We want to show we’ve taken a step to earn a spot in the playoffs.”

GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD

Coach: Scott Wilson (6th season) Last season: 25th in Class A, 6th in KVAC Top returners: Jane VanDerKarr (Jr., jumps, hurdles), Liz Young (Jr., distance), Rebecca Luce (Jr., distance), Mickelle McCafferty (Sr., throws), Meghan Collier (Sr., distance), Lindi Forsley (Jr., middledistance) Key newcomers: Amanda Knight (Fr., sprints). Outlook: Numbers are way up at Messalonskee, as Wilson said more than 70 athletes came out this spring. This bodes well for the girls, who return plenty of strong performers. Collier finished eighth in the 1,600 at the Class A meet last season. VanDerKarr also should produce in a variety of events. Coach’s comment: “We should do pretty well. We’ll be competitive. We’re trying to sort out all the new kids, but we have some depth.”

Coach: Scott Wilson (6th season) Last season: 22nd in Class A, 10th in KVAC Top returners: Harlow Ladd (Jr., distance), Shawn Veilleux (Jr., jumps, hurdles, middle-distance), Zach Sutherland (Jr., jumps, hurdles), Arthur Conover (So., distance), Tyler Eastler (Sr., throws), Anthony Guimond (Sr., hurdles, race walk) Key newcomers: Elijah Steele (So., jumps, throws). Outlook: Ladd is one of the top distance runners in the state, but he is working his way back from tendinitis suffered during the indoor season. The Eagles won’t push him early with the hopes he’ll once again contend in the KVAC and Class A meets later in the season. Sutherland should also produce well. He finished sixth in the 110 hurdles and seventh in the triple jump at the KVAC A meet. Coach’s comment: “The boys will do all right. We might surprise some people down the road.”

BASEBALL SOFTBALL Coach: Leo Bouchard (6th season) Last season: 7-9 in Eastern A Top returners: Bri Warren (Sr., 3B), Alei Collier (Sr., 2B), Alyssa Eugley (Sr., C), Tatiana Vogel (Sr., 1B), Amanda Joy (Jr., OF), Bri Garland (So., P), Cait Bradley (So., 1B/OF) Key newcomers: Hannah Jalette (Sr., IF), Jessica Sucy (Sr., IF) Outlook: Bouchard was still finalizing the roster at press time. The Eagles have a nice nucleus of returning players, but so much is unknown in preseason because of the number of newcomers. Garland had some back problems last spring but appears to be healthier this season and is throwing better. Coach’s comment: “We’ve got a lot of talent, and the chemistry is very good, but it’s getting people acclimated to positions they’re not used to playing.”

Coach: Ray Bernier (5th season) Last season: 8-9, reached East A quarterfinals Top returners: Parker Forsley (Sr., IF-OF), Tom Littlefield (Sr., DH-1B), Justin Tinsman (Sr., C-P), Justin Meader (Sr., 1B), Sam Dexter (Jr., SS), Gage Landry (Jr., OF-P), Josh Landry (Jr., 1B) Key newcomers: Luke Bartlett (Sr., IF-OF), Billy Potter (Sr., OF-P), Travis St. Pierre (Jr., IF-P), Patrick Breton (So., P-IF), Chris Delisle (So., CIF), Reid Nutter (So., P-IF), Josh Woodard (So., P-IF), Devin Warren (Fr., P-IF) Outlook: In Dexter, the Eagles have one of the top players in the state. The junior hit close to .400 last season and moves from second base to shortstop. Tinsman gives Messalonskee an experienced catcher, but who will throw to him is a question mark. Coach Bernier is looking for pitchers, and will try a number of players on the hill. The Eagles have talent, it’s just a matter of finding the right spot for many players. Coach’s comment: “We’re trying to find who’s going to fit where. We’ll continue to have the goal of making the playoffs.”

Coach: Caroline Mathes (10th season) Last season: 4-8 Top returners: Paige Oliver (Sr.), Kristen Brann (Sr.), Alana Silverman (Sr.), Kelsey Woodhead (Sr.), Jess McKeil (Sr.), Erin Candage (Jr.), Kelley Boyce (Jr.) Shawna Oliver (So.), Amelia Ardito (Jr.), Kaylee Bates (So.) Key newcomers: Chelsey Oliver (So.) Outlook: Paige Oliver will step into the No. 1 singles role this season after playing at No. 3 last season. The Eagles did lose Audrey Knowlton and Erin Chapin, who both qualified for the state tournament, to graduation. Chelsey Oliver joins the team after missing her freshman year with an injury and should be a factor. Coach’s comment: “The top seven players are going to compete and have similar skills. It’s going to come down to playing smart and consistent. I’m not going to have a power player like Audrey this year.”

Coach: Ed Hinkley (5th season) Last season: 4-8 Top returners: Chris Knight (Jr.), Jai Aslam (So.), Tyler Jones (Jr.), Ben Collins (Jr.), Eric Jacques (Jr.), Billy Noble (Jr.) Key newcomers: Derek Gervis (Jr.), Harrison Goodhue (Sr.), Erik Holmsen (Sr.), Nikko Noble (So.), Justin Rice (Sr.) Outlook: Hinkley thinks that the consistent offseason play of a lot of his team should pay off this spring. With 18 students on the team, he will have some depth to choose from. Either Aslam or Knight will be the Eagles’ No. 1 singles player. Noble could contribute immediately. Coach’s comment: “We should have a strong, competitive team this year. One of our doubles teams is returning and we should have competitive singles with two of the three singles having played last year. ”

Coach: Katie Gorham (1st season) Last season: 7-7, lost in Eastern A semifinals Top returners: Ally Delisle (Sr., MF), Alli Omsberg (Sr., MF), Abbey Stacey (Sr., A), Amy Jose (Sr., A). Key newcomers: Sarah Grenier (Fr., MF), Cecilia Thomas (Jr., MF), Katie Bernatchez (Jr., D). Outlook: Gorham takes over a playoff team that returns a number of talented players. The offensive unit should be strong and the Eagles have added some talented newcomers. Coach’s comment: “It is a great group of girls who are extremely hard workers. They are driven to succeed.”

Coach: Tom Sheridan (17th season) Last season: 10-4, lost in Eastern A final Top returners: Nate DelGiudice (Jr., A), Keenan Knox (Sr., MF), Jacob Erskine (Sr., MF), Cameron Douglas (Sr., MF), Josh Smith (Sr., D), Josh Hall (Sr., D), Ryan McLellan (Sr., D), Andrew Wilson (Sr., A). Key newcomers: Jake Smith (Fr., G), Luke Vigue (Jr., A), Carl Smith (Jr., MF), Kyle Gleason (Jr., MF), Tyler Davely (Sr., MF). Outlook: The Eagles reached the regional for the fourth time in the last five seasons and earned their first win in 13 tries against Brunswick in the playoffs last season. They return the majority of their roster, including the high-scoring DelGiudice and a strong group of midfielders. Coach’s comment: “Some of these guys have been starters since they were sophomores, so you’ve got to think we’ll be pretty competitive. Should be able to compete in our league. The kids are hungry.”

SOFTBALL

BASEBALL

Coach: Rachel Bernier (23rd season) Last season: 8-7, lost in Western C quarterfinals Top returners: Kelsie Hilton (Sr., 3B/C), Kristi Hilton (Sr., IF/OF), Meaghan Bates (Jr., OF), Angela Bechard (Jr., IF), Reen Kahl (Jr., P/1B), Colby Wilson (Jr., IF/OF/P), Chelse Arsenault (So., CF), Brianna Hicks (So., SS/P), Daisi Poole (So., C) Key newcomers: Lauren Chase (So., IF/OF), Sabrina Beck (Fr., UT), Kylie Kemp (Fr., UT), Natalie Young (Fr., UT) Outlook: The Mustangs have an excellent pitcher in Kahl, who missed most of last season with an injury before returning down the stretch to help the Mustangs make the playoffs. Kahl, Wilson and Kristi Hilton are three-year starters, while Kelsie Hilton is starting for the fourth year. Coach’s comment: Unavailable at press time.

Coach: Eric Palleschi (7th season) Last season: 2-12 in Class C West Top returners: Roger Bachelder (Sr., P-1B), Blake Burnham (Sr., P-1B), Jeremy Ashlock (Sr., P-Util.), Mike Lent (Sr., INF), Billy Cummings (So., C), Scott Peacock (Jr., Util.), Josh Fournier (So., 3B-P), Devin West (So., OF), Key newcomers: Tyler Nadeau (Sr., OF), Brandon Goff (Fr., PUtil.), D.J. McHugh (Fr., INF-P), Kyle Fletcher (Fr., P-OF) Outlook: The Mustangs have 26 out for the team, one of their largest contingents in recent years. They also return eight players but their pitchers didn’t play primary roles last season. Cummings returns to catch while the middle of the infield and the outfield are unsettled. The freshmen on the team played on a Babe Ruth team that won the state championship last year. Coach’s comment: “Four guys got time on the mound. Also the three freshmen (throw) but they’ve got to learn to pitch.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Jessica Merrill (4th season) Last season: 5-7 Top returners: Taylor Scott (Sr.), Brittany Roberts (Jr.), Molly Plossay (Jr.), Lauren Beaudoin (Jr.) Key newcomers: Nicole Nugent (Jr.), Hillary Jean (Sr.), Meagan Currie (Fr.), Erin Dyke (Fr.), Natalie Olko (So.) Outlook: Merrill believes her team is well balanced with returning players and new comers. The Mustangs just missed the playoffs last season. Scott moves up from No. 3 singles to No. 1. Plossay and Roberts will likely fill in the two other single slots for the Mustangs. Coach’s comment: “My goal for this team is to improve with every game to develop skills and knowledge of the game. With losing the top two singles players last year, the girls want to show other teams they can improve from last year and hopefully make an impact in the conference and strive for a playoff seed.”

TO YOU: Monmouth Academy’s Nick Trenholm returns a shot during a match last season. Trenholm returns this season. The Mustangs finished 12-0 last year.

BOYS TENNIS Coach: Lucas Turner (2nd season) Last season: 12-0, MVC champions, lost in Western C final Top returners: Kevin Smith (Sr.), Nick Trenholm (Jr.), Robby Neal (Sr.), Chris Taylor (Jr.), Nick Foulke (So.), Adam Parsons (So.) Key newcomers: Robert Vickerson (Fr.), Joe Menice (Fr.), Kyle Brown ( Jr.), Kevin Anderson (Jr.) Drew McFarren (So.) Outlook: The Mustangs have reached the Western C finals the last two seasons and were stopped by Class C champion Waynflete on both occasions. The Mustangs lost their top four players to graduation and are in rebuilding mode. Coach’s comment: “I don’t think we are going to be anywhere as dominant as last year with just two seniors on the team. Our goal is to win some matches and make the playoffs and we’ll se how it goes from there. Winthrop is going to be the team to beat in the MVC.”

Pomerleau returns as one of the team’s top sprinters and Menendez said Manice should score well in the javelin this spring. Urquart returns and should perform well in the discus after missing last season with an injury. Coach’s comment: “We are in pretty good shape. We should do pretty well.”

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD

Coach: Tom Menendez (3rd season) Last season: 21st in Class C, 6th in MVC Top returners: Matt Bryant (Jr., distance), Eric Columbe (Sr., throws), Kevin Desmond (Sr., distance), Matt McInnis (Jr., distance), Patrick McInnis (Sr., distance), Russell Neal (So., distance), Henry Talbot (So., hurdles, distance), Tyler Horsford (Jr., distance).

Outlook: The Mustangs once again will be strong in the middle distance and distance events. Bryant, Desmond and Matt and Patrick McInnis should all perform well again. Desmond was seventh in the 800 at the Class C meet last season. With a promising group of newcomers, Monmouth should contend in the MVC. Coach’s comment: “We’ll be a little bit stronger than last year. We have some strong talent out.”

BOYS TENNIS Coach: Stan Kuklinski (5th season) Last season: 6-6, lost in Eastern A quarterfinals Top returners: Dustin James (Jr.), Seth Wegner (Sr.), Dylan Stinchfield (Sr.), Dylan Toothaker (Sr.), Nick Nile (Sr.), Matt Dustin (Jr.), Jake Veayo (Jr.), Tim Andrews (Sr.), Josh Marcellino (So.), Max Richard (So.), Lucas Bonnevie (Jr.), Ryan Flanagan (So.). Key newcomers: Luke Wooden (Fr.), Ike Doiron (Fr.), Silas Rogers (Fr.), Zak Kendall (So.) and Nathan Backus (Fr.) Outlook: The Cougars, a club team four seasons ago, have 17 players out. Matt St. John and Nick Wilkins, who qualified for the state tournament last spring, both graduated. Kuklinski thinks James could make an impact. Coach’s comment: “With so many fine returning players mentoring the newer members of the team and with this team’s skills on the court, this group is bound to be very competitive. Their prospects are limitless.”

RUN-DOWN: Mt. Blue’s Dylan Vining, right, returns to the infield and the mound this season for the Cougars.

BASEBALL Coach: Dan Stefanilo (2nd season) Last season: 4-12 Top returners: Dylan Vining (Sr., P-IF), Clint Lowe (Sr., 2B), Jimmy Neal (Sr., P-IF), Nick Hilton (Jr., OF-P), Blake Hart (Jr., UT-P), Matt Crowley (Jr., C-IF), Bradley Jackson (So., P-IF) Key newcomers: Chad Luker (So., IF), Damian Daggett (Jr., IF-OF), Nathan Kendall (So., C-IF), Jamie Schanck (So., IF-C), Andrew Pratt (Fr., C), Cameron Abbott (Fr., IF-OF) Outlook: With Neal, Jackson, Hilton, Hart and Vining, the Cougars have the potential for a very strong pitching staff. An arm injury kept Vining off the mound all of last season, and he’ll start this season in the bullpen. Vining, Lowe, Neal, Hilton and Crowley are the top returning hitters. Pratt had a strong preseason, and could see time behind the plate as a freshman. Coach’s comment: “Just like last year, we have some good tools. We just need to keep getting better.”

SOFTBALL Coach: Lisa Dube (2nd season) Last season: 3-13 in Eastern A Top returners: Michaela Yeaton (Sr., P/SS), Hannah Allen (Sr., CF/C), Lindsay St. Laurent (Sr., OF), Jillian Perron (Sr., OF), Tanisha Dellarma (Sr., 3B), Marcy Smith (Sr., 2B), Abbey Ellis (Jr., OF), Lexi Howard (Jr., P), Sara Turner (Jr., UT) Key newcomers: Nicole Osborne (Fr., C), Lisa Couture (Fr., OF) Outlook: With a senior-heavy roster, the Cougars are hoping to take the step from being competitive to contending for a playoff spot. Howard is showing better control this spring, and the defense, led by Allen in center field and Yeaton at short, should also be a plus. Coach’s comment: “I want to improve from last year. I’m hoping to take those close games and turn those Ls into Ws.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Judy Upham (12th season) Last season: 7-5 Top returners: Lena Kendall (Sr.), Abby Flanagan (Sr.), Marlie Mochamer (Sr.), Elizabeth LeClair (Sr.), Gabby Fellman (Sr.), Avonlea Dwight (Sr.) Key newcomers: Cherokee Luker (Sr.), Kaitlyn Burdick (Sr.), Carolyn Poliquin (So.), Katie Lewis (So.), Mackenzie Conlogue (So.) Outlook: The Cougars have a number of seniors, including top singles players Kendall and LeClair. Mt. Blue has 41 players on its roster. The Cougars’ goal is to make the Class A playoffs this spring. Coach’s comment: “These girls are ready for the season. My senior captains, Lena Kendall and Liz LeClair are really stepping up to make sure the preseason conditioning is challenging.”

BOYS LACROSSE Coach: John McDonough (1st season) Last season: 2-10 Top returners: Griffen Conlogue (Sr., A), Alex Hiscock (So., A), Ethen Kyle (Sr., MF), Matt Davis (Sr., MF), Dillon Burnham (Sr., MF), Phil Wells (Sr., A), AJ Larrabee (Sr., D). Key newcomers: Sam Taylor (Fr.), Jackson Gladowski (Fr.). Outlook: McDonough plans to change the Cougars style of play, focusing on a speed game. He thinks by focusing on skill and speed, rather than physicality, Mt. Blue will match up better with the southern teams. The Cougars lost some talented players, but do have some talent returning. Coach’s comment: “I’m not a big proponent of slow lacrosse. I like fast lacrosse. If we can run, we can stay in a lot of close games.”

Coach: Kelley Cullenberg (10th season) Last season: 19th in Class A, 5th in KVAC Top returners: Gwen Beacham (Sr., middle-distance, distance), Allison Brown (Sr., sprints, middle-distance), Emily Reed (Sr., race walk, distance), Addie Cullenberg (Jr., middle-distance, distance), Juliette Luchini (Jr., distance), Emily Ramsey (Jr., hurdles), Marina West (Jr., hurdles, middle-distance, jumps), Louisa Stancioff (Jr., middle-distance, sprints), Ruth Leopold (So., middle-distance, distance), Abbie Lochala (So., distance, race walk), Maryam Norton (So., middle-distance). Key newcomers: Ellie Beauchamp (Fr., sprints), Sarita Crandall (Fr., sprints), Taylor Hollingsworth (Fr., middle-distance, distance), Miranda Nicely (Fr., middledstance, distance), Kiana Thompson (Fr., sprints, jumps), Samantha Tracy (Fr., throws), Sarah Wade (Fr., midd-distance, distance), Shawnee Ellis (Fr., middledistance, distance), Shireen Luick (So., throws, sprints), Sharon Schwartz (Fr., throws). Outlook: The Cougars feature a deeper team this season, which should give them a boost in the conference and state meets. They have 22 girls out, up from about 15 last year, and Cullenberg said that should make a big difference. Reed finished fifth in the race walk at the KVAC A meet last season while Beacham was second in the 1,600. Coach’s comment: “We are going to be more wellrounded. We are more versatile this year. We won’t have as many gaps as we had last year in events.”

Coach: Kelley Cullenberg (10th season) Last season: 17th in Class A, 7th in KVAC Top returners: Jonah Jones (Jr., distance, pole vault), Caleb Allen (So., sprints), Josh Carlson (So., sprints), Sully Jackson (So., middle-distance, distance), Zach Jackson (So., middle-distance, pole vault), Justin Tracy (So., distance), Zach Veayo (So., spints, middle-distance), Jackie Chen (Jr., sprints) Key newcomers: Anthony Balsam (Jr., throws), Mike Black (Jr., throws, sprints), Alex Chandler (Jr., middle-distance, distance), Jaren Jones (Sr., distance) Brandon Cochran (Sr., throws), Brian Durrell (Fr., multi), Brad Dwinal (Fr., multi), Corey Iba (So., sprints), North Kay (Jr., sprints, middle-distance), Dylan Lord (Fr., throws, sprints), Sean Moore (Jr., throws, sprints), Chris Malone (Jr., sprints, middle-distance), Shane O’Neill (Jr., hurdles, jumps, sprints), Sam Richardson (Jr., middle-distance, distance), Dustin Staples (Fr., middledistance), Allen Taylor (Fr., sprints, middle-distance), Izaiha Tracy (Jr., sprints, jumps, throws), Cody Workman (Jr., throws), Dustin Zamboni (Jr., sprints, throws), Brandyn Kendall (Fr., sprints, jumps), John David Evans (Jr., sprints, middle-distance) Outlook: The Cougars for the first time in several years will be well-covered in the throwing events, thanks to the addition of eight football players. Jones leads the distance group while Allen and Carlson should score well in the sprints. With an increase in numbers, the Cougars could surprise in the KVAC this spring. Coach’s comment: “Excitement is our key word. We are really, really motivated.”

MT. BLUE’S BACK FOR MORE: Jonah Jones will run the distance events and participate in the pole vault for the Cougars this season. Staff file photo by Joe Phelan

Coach: Lee Nile (1st season) Last season: 10-6, reached West C quarterfinals Top returners: Will London (Sr., P-OF), Parker Kennedy (Jr., C-OF), Josh Beedy (Jr, P-3B), Trent Rosenberg (Jr., 2B-P), Jay Chenard (So., SS-P) Key newcomers: Ethan Boyd (Jr., OF), Cody Espeaignnette (So., 2B-SS), Jonathan Hart (Fr., OF), Sol Fast (Fr., C), Arthur Ryan (Fr., 1B), Callum Dixon (Fr., 3B-P) Outlook: The Roadrunners lost a lot of players to graduation. Nile, a former assistant coach at Mt. Blue, has some young talent to work with. Chenard started at shortstop last season, and Beedy, Rosenberg, London and Kennedy each have varsity experience. The four freshmen could contribute immediately. Coach’s comment: “We’ll pitch and play defense. Throw strikes and clean up behind them.”

SOFTBALL Coach: Jeff Pillsbury (2nd season) Last season: 10-6, lost in Western C semifinals Top returners: Dani Smith (Sr., C), Colleen Shields (Sr., 1B), Molly McCafferty (Sr., P), Anna McGinness (Sr., 2B), Sam Werzanski (Jr., IF), Bridget Blood (Jr., C/OF), Jill Howard (So., OF), Taylor Henderson (So., UT), Taylor Jordan (So., 1B/3B/P) Key newcomers: Alex Howard (So., P/OF), Jenny Rowland (So., OF), Tori Beane (So., UT) Outlook: Pillsbury, who is also Mt. Abram’s athletic director, decided to return for another season, and he brings back a top-notch pitcher in McCafferty. If the Roadrunners decide to use Howard as a pitcher, McCafferty could fill in at almost any position. Smith, a fine catcher, will also help. Coach’s comment: “There’ll be some growing pains. We’ve got a lot of potential, but we’ve got a lot of work to do.”

Abram in the 1990s. He will rely on Forest Mitchell and Rivers for some leadership this spring. Coach’s comment: “I’m really impressesd with their natural skills that they are bringing to the team. They show an obvious ability to be a great group of tennis players.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Jamie Bandershall (1st season) Last season: 9-3 Top returners: Clayre Plog (Sr.), Staci Plog (Jr..), Lakeesha Woodcock (Sr.) Key newcomers: Samantha Woodcock (Jr.), Ashia Gill (So.), Maggie Elliott (Fr.), Mariah Kendall (Fr.), Lindsey Benoit (Fr.), Brandy Pease (Fr.), Alex Harnden (Fr.) Outlook: The Roadrunners have three returners and seven newcomers this season. Staci Plog is the strongest player so far and has stepped into a leadership role, according to Bandershall. Coach’s comment: “They’re eager to learn. It will be a building year for sure but we are looking forward to it. This is an impressive group of young ladies.”

Coach: Chris Hink (1st season) Last season: 2-14 Top returners: Alec Davis (Sr., P-IF), Markus Lowe (Sr., IF), Aaron Elkins (Jr., IF), Adam Higgins (Jr., P-OF-1B), Jalen Babin (Jr., C), Jake Aitken (Jr., IF) Key newcomers: Billy Ripley (Sr., P-UT), Craig Nealley (Jr., P-OF), Tyler McCormick (Jr., OF-P), Taylor Reynolds (Jr., 1B-P), Joel Poulin (Jr., OF), Ricky Moulton (So., C), Kyle Turner (So., P-C-UT), Ethan Harding (So., IF), Devon Fuller (So., OF), Jack Simpson (Fr., IF-OF), Kenneth McGray (Fr., P-IF), Bryan Jungels (Fr., P-IF), Gavin Caler (Fr., OF), Erik Larrabee (Fr., OF) Outlook: Hink is the Mustangs’ fourth coach in as many years, and is also the boys soccer coach at Mt. View. The Mustangs don’t have a lot of varsity experience. Davis and Nealley are the captains and both have the potential for a breakout season. If Mt. View can improve defensively and cut down on walks allowed, it can improve on last season’s won-loss record. Coach’s comment: “I’ve seen so much improvement. It’s great. They know how I work, and we’re going to work hard. To me, that’s fun.”

Coach: Mike Gagnon (10th season) Last season: 2-14 in Eastern B Top returners: Amanda Hall (Sr., IF), Channing Murphy (Sr., IF), Vicki Lufkin (Sr., C/IF), Brianna Moody (Sr., OF), Hailey Giggey (Jr., P), LeeAnn Larrabee (Jr., IF/OF), Fran Stevens (Jr., IF/OF), Wendy Gibbs (Jr., IF), Amanda Larrabee (Jr., IF/OF), Brittany Masessa (So., OF) Key newcomers: Alex Fowler (Fr., P), Shaniah Gilley (Fr., C) Outlook: After taking a step backward last season, the Mustangs are looking to bounce back behind a group of 10 returning players. Gagnon liked what he saw of the team chemistry in the early going. Coach’s comment: “I really just want to be competitive. That’s where I want this program to be.”

GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Kevin Petrak (6th season) Last season: 14th in Class B, 6th in KVAC Top returners: Hayleigh Kein (Sr., sprints, jumps), Chrissy Larrabee (Sr., distance, jumps), Delainey Kein (Jr., middle-distance), Katie Cloutier (Sr., middle-distance), Masha Faulkner (So., sprints), Kyrstyn Keating (So., middle-distance), Anna Piotti (Jr., sprints, hurdles), Kaytlyn Porter (So., race walk, sprints), Caitlin Picard (Jr., sprints) Key newcomers: Madeline Blake (Fr., sprints), Hailey Davis (Fr., jumps), Mikell Grant (So., middle-distance), Briana Littlefield (Fr., throws), Maggie Clark (Sr., distance) Outlook: The Mustangs had about 20 girls come out this spring, giving them good depth. Hayleigh Kein is coming off a strong season in which she finished second in the high jump and fifth in the 100 at the Class B state meet. Larrabee is one of the top distance runners in the KVAC as well. Coach’s comment: “We do hope the girls team places higher up in the meets than what we have had in the past.”

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Kevin Petrak (6th season) Last season: 21st in Class B, 10th in KVAC Top returners: Colby Blanchard (Sr., jumps, throws), Seth London (Sr., sprints) Nate Sigouin (Sr., sprints, throws), Curtis Griffin (Jr., sprints, hurdles), Mitch Ryan (Sr., sprints), Billy Buker (Sr., sprints, jumps), Jake Jones (So., distance), Kyle Hadyniak (Sr., sprints), Tyler Hadyniak (Sr., throws), Tim Bennett (Jr., sprints), Jordan Faller (Jr., throws), Owen Freeman (So., throws), Andrew Gibbs (Jr., throws), Sebastian Laforge (Sr., throws), Kris Ravin (Sr., throws). Key newcomers: Andrew Cloutier (Fr., race walk), SIias Fox (Fr., distance), Cayenne Outerbridge (Fr., distance), Logan Ryan (Fr., sprints, throws). Outlook: The Mustangs had a good turnout — about 30 — that gives Petrak some optimism heading into the season. The team will also compete on a new rubberized home track, which should help the relay teams and sprinters. Blanchard had a strong year in the high jump while London and Sigouin should score well this season in the sprints. Coach’s comment: “We should do fairly well. We have quite a bit of talent returning.”

Kennebec Journal | Morning Sentinel | Special Supplement | Friday, April 15, 2011

GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: John Hubbell (1st season) Last season: 20th in Class B, 11th in KVAC Top returners: Jennifer Hastings (Sr., jumps, middle-distance), Erin Taylor (Jr., sprints, jumps), Brynn Cardozo (Jr., jumps, hurdles), Olivia McAnirlin (So., distance), Kaylee Kershner (So, sprints), Leah Edmondson (Jr., middle-distance), Emily Reynolds (Jr., throws), Erica Smith (So., sprints, jumps), Emily Paige (So., middle-distance) Key newcomers: Marissa Shaw (Jr., distance, throws), Hannah Paradis (So., middle-distance, jumps), Kerri Guesman (Jr., sprints) Outlook: The Warriors feature a new head coach in Hubbard, who was an assistant last year. He leads a team that lost some a few key athletes to graduation. Still, the Warriors should be competitive thanks to a strong group of middle distance runners. Cardozo and Taylor both enjoyed strong seasons last spring. Coach’s comment: “We’ll be competitive in most of our meets. We’ll finish most of our meets in the middle or near the top.”

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: John Hubbell (1st season) Top returners: Joey Garcia (Jr., race walk), Andrew Moontri (Sr., throws), Cody Pelletier (Jr., jumps, sprints), Dan Tucker (Sr., sprints), Austin Chipman (Jr., throws), Lucas Hayden (So., middledistance, jumps), Nathan Michaud (Jr., middle-distance), Josh Philbrook (So., throws), Nick Reynolds (So., race walk, jumps), Taylor Kennedy (Jr., throws), Devin Morse (So., jumps, relays) Key newcomers: Jacob Welch (Sr., sprints) Outlook: Numbers are up for the Warriors, who drew about 37 boys this spring. Hubbell said he is still trying to figure out who will compete where, but the team should be competitive in the KVAC. Pelletier performed well in the triple jump last spring. Coach’s comment: “We have some good numbers, and we have some strong returners. I think we will be more competitive than what we were last year.”

SOFTBALL Coach: J.D. McLellan (8th season) Last season: 7-9 in Eastern B Top returners: Sam Richardson (Sr., 1B), Maria Adams (Sr., RF), Rebecca George (Sr., 2B), Becca Boyce (Jr., 1B), Taylor Lovley (So., 3B), Lacey Kent-Webber (So., SS), Ashley Griffith (So., CF) Key newcomers: Danielle George (So., C), Emily Schmidt (Fr., C), Drew Graves (Fr., LF), Sierra Fortin (Fr., P), Tasha Howard (Fr., CF), Becky Orcutt (Fr., P), Taylor Guillero (Fr., OF), Courtney Carlson (Fr., C), Sarah Packard (Fr., P) Outlook: Like many teams in the area, the Warriors are young and looking to gain experience. All three pitchers are freshmen, and McLellan said all three will see time. Having catcher Megan Perry (who tore her ACL in basketball season) back at catcher would have helped, but McLellan still likes the offense. Nokomis may be able to have a nice mixture of slap and power hitters. Coach’s comment: “They do like to practice. They like to dive. They’re fearless when it comes to the ball, and that’s what I like about them.”

Coach: Jared Foster (4th season) Last season: 5-11 Top returners: John Adams (So., P-OF), Justin Amoroso (Jr., P-1B), Cody Brawn (Jr., P-OF), Spencer Hartsgrove (So., SS-P), Dylan Hawthorne (Sr., 3B-P), Justin Kasprzak (So., 1B-C), Sean Kasprzak (Sr., 2B-OF), Jared Seamans (Sr., P-1B), Casey Wickens (Jr., 3B-OF) Key newcomers: Drew Curran (So., OF-1B), Chandler Foss (So., OF), Jesse Hicks (So., 2B), Jeff Ludden (So., C-2B), Drew Wing (So., OF) Outlook: The Warriors made great improvements last season and, with just two players lost to graduation, feel they’ll be in the mix for a playoff spot in Eastern Class B. Amoroso and Seamans, a lefty, provide experienced arms at the top of the rotation. Justin Kasprzak and Hartsgrove could provide offense for Nokomis. Coach’s comment: “We should be able to make a lot of little things happen. This is a smart group of kids.”

SOFTBALL Coach: Julie Boucher (15th season) Last season: 13-4, lost in Western B quarterfinals Top returners: Taylor Fillion (Sr., C/OF), Lauren Hall (Sr., P/3B/1B), Rebecca Tucci (Sr., C/OF/1B), Katie Wood (Sr., OF), Alexis Priest (Jr., 3B/SS), Marrissa Caskin (Jr., OF), Alyssa Rouleau (So., 2B/SS) Key newcomers: Autumn Ayres (Jr., OF), Brooke Beganny (Jr., OF/1B), Ashley Cheetham (Jr., 3B), Ashley Ward (Jr., OF, C), Brianna Hodgkins (So., 1B), Bryanna Latulippe (So., 1B/OF), Brooke LeBel (So., C/OF), Kortni Michaud (So., P/SS), Baylee Ayres (Fr., OF/1B), Lauren Beganny (Fr., P/2B), Kayla Jones (Fr., OF/1B) Outlook: The Raiders graduated one senior from a 13-win team, so they are predicted to have another successful season. Hall is a reliable pitcher, and Michaud will be able to step in and share the load. The offense looks to be deep and talented. Coach’s comment: “I always shoot for the top. There are other good teams. I hope to be at least in the playoffs and further.”

Coach: Chad Drouin (7th season) Last season: 9-7 in Class B West Top returners: Josh Martin (Jr., P-1B), Ben Dyer (Sr., P-OF), Craig Morrill (Sr., SS), Cody Provost (Sr., CF-P), Cam Morin (Sr., C-P), Mike Rawstron (Sr., 2B), Tyler Pelletier (Sr., RF) Key newcomers: Sam Morin (So., P), Dalton Burns (So., 3B), Brady Dion (Fr., OF), Parker Asselin (Fr., C-INF-P), Jared Glasier (Fr., INF-P) Outlook: Despite some key graduation losses, the Raiders should compete for a playoff berth. Martin leads a contingent of four pitchers that Drouin feels pretty confident about. Morrill, one of the top center fielders in the conference, moves to shortstop while Provost will play center. Defense should be one of the team’s strengths. Coach’s comment: “(Defensively), we’re going to be very solid. Offensively, we’ve got three hitters who are proven.”

BOYS LACROSSE Coach: Steve Cobb (1st season) Last season: 1-11 Top returners: Nate Rolston (Sr., MF), Trevor Samson (So., MF), Will Aronson (Sr., D), Sam Hatch (Sr., A), Nick Wells (Sr., D), Zach Surette (Sr., D) Key newcomers: John Averill (So.), Bailey Beaulieau (Fr., G), Brian Daniels (So., A), Brandon Potvin (So., MF) Outlook: The Raiders look to bounce back after struggling last season and have a strong defensive group to lead the way in front of Beaulieu. Numbers are decent with 28 players on the roster in preseason. Coach’s comment: “We return a lot of very talented defensemen, a good core group of guys. And we have great senior leadership.”

BOYS TENNIS Coach: Jamie Boucher (7th season) Last season: 6-6 Top returners: Brian Bradstreet (Sr.), Joe Turcotte (Sr.), Jack Champagne (Sr.) Key newcomers: Britin Kramer (So.), Riley Adams (Fr.), Adam Priest (Fr.), Dylan Richards (Sr.) Outlook: With only seven players on the team, Boucher is looking for a few more players. Bradstreet has been Oak Hill’s No. 1 singles player the last two seasons and was able to advance during the singles tournament a year ago. Turcotte and Champagne will fill in the rest of the singles ladder. Champagne played doubles last year while Turcotte played singles. Coach’s comment: “The doubles teams will all be new to high school tennis. So, while the team has three players that have played for four years, the other four are rookies.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Jamie Boucher (8th season) Last season: 11-1, lost in Western B final Top returners: Hannah Langlois (Sr.), Sara Lacroix (Sr.), Darby Beaulieu (Jr.), Brittney Marshall (Sr.), Molly Morrill (Sr.) Key newcomers: Leah Rossi (Jr.), Brianna Ritchie (Sr.), Gabby Green (So.) Outlook: Oak Hill has made it to the Western B finals the last two seasons only to lose to perennial powerhouse Falmouth on both occasions. The Raiders have five players back, including four seniors. Langlois advanced in the singles tournament last season. Lacroix will be a solid No. 2, while Beaulieu, Marshall and Morrill will all compete for playing time. Coach’s comment: “The numbers are good and I have around 15 girls. I have quite a few new freshmen and sophomores so the future looks good. I am optimistic about the season.”

Richard is an experienced pitcher, and will be joined by Hall as Rangeley’s top two hurlers. Morton is a strong catcher, and Sargent is another veteran and solid hitter. Coach’s comment: “I think we’ll definitely be competitive.”

Coach: Ashley Quimby (1st season) Last season: 7-7, lost in Western D semifinals Top returners: Dagmar Wetherill (Sr., 2B), Allie Hammond (Sr., OF), Emily Carrier (Jr., SS), Chantal Carrier (Jr., P), Sandra Campbell (Jr., P/OF), Olivia Jannace (So., 3B), Meagan Crosson (So., OF), Jenney Abbott (So., 1B), Abby Abbott (So., OF) Key newcomers: Ellie Brooks (Jr., 3B/OF), Bekah Trask (Jr., OF), Heidi Elliott (So., OF), Tori Letarte (Fr., SS/OF), Seve Deery-DeRaps (8th, C/OF), Taylor Bean (8th, C/OF) Outlook: Quimby, a 2006 Rangeley grad, is the Lakers’ third coach in three years. Quimby has four pitchers to choose from, but Chantal Carrier is the likely ace. Coach’s comment: “They’re very dedicated and hard-working. They’re a great group of girls.”

Key newcomers: Peter Lorbeski (Jr., Util.) Sam Lorbeski (Fr., OF), Dustin Sullivan (Fr., P-OF), Evan Esancy (Fr., Util). Outlook: For the first time in several seasons, the Bobcats are rebuilding. Tuttle moves to the top of the pitching rotation while Carver takes over as the team’s catcher.The team’s greatest challenge will be to develop pitching depth and stamina. Offensively, there isn’t a lot of power so expect the Bobcats to try to manufacture runs. Coach’s comment: “When Tuttle’s on the mound, I think we’ll be as good as anybody else. It’s finding that (No.) 2 and (No) 3.”

COLLISION: Skowhegan shortstop Whitney Jones, left, returns to the infield this season. The Indians went 17-2 last year, losing in the Eastern Class A final. Staff photo by Joe Phelan

SOFTBALL Coach: Lee Johnson (11th season) Last season: 17-2, lost in Eastern A final Top returners: Whitney Jones (Sr., SS), Mary Baker (Sr., 3B), Kady Esty (Sr., P), Anna Lorette (Jr., C/1B), Amanda Johnson (Jr., P/2B), Mikayla Fitzmaurice (Jr., OF/3B), Shelby Obert (So., C/SS), Lyndsi Merrill (So., OF/3B) Key newcomers: Adrienne Davis (Sr., OF/IF), Kaitlyn Grover (Jr., OF), Lexia Dorr (Jr., UT), Emmalee Tracy (Jr., P/OF), Kaylin Knott (Jr., UT), Anne-Marie Provencal (So., C/OF), Renee Libby (So., OF/3B), Taylor Johnson (Fr., 1B/P) Outlook: The Indians will start the season with at least five new starters, including their battery. Skowhegan is deep and should always be able to put a quality pitcher in the circle, but the Indians will probably make some mistakes of inexperience in the early going. Coach’s comment: “They’re very coachable. I’m not sure where we’ll be at the beginning of the season, but at the end of the season, I think we’ll be a pretty good ballclub.”

Coach: Rick York (5th season) Last season: 5-11 Top returners: Sebastian Dumont (Sr., LF-P), Tyler Blanchet (Sr., 2B), Brandon Corson (Sr., OF), Isaac Wacome (Jr., 1B-P), Dustin Warren (Jr., OF), Henry Ametti (So., C) Key newcomers: Cody Moody (Jr., P), Jonathan Emery (Jr., IF), John Houlihan (Jr., OF), Chase McKenney (So., CF), Tyler Savage (So., RF), Kameron Nelson (So., 3B-P), Derek McCarthy (So., P-OF), Trevor Hisler (So., P-IF), Taylor Bacon (So., P-IF), John Swett (Fr., P-SS) Outlook: With 10 newcomers, the Indians are one of the youngest teams in the KVAC. There’s talent on the roster, just not much varsity experience. Wacome will bat third in the lineup after hitting .382 last season. Ametti started behind the plate as a freshman last season. Dumont and Blanchet also are key returning players. The sophomores will see a lot of time on the mound. Coach’s comment: “We have to get right down to fundamentals and coach these kids up.”

GIRLS TENNIS

BOYS TENNIS

Coach: Andrew Staples (4th season) Last season: 2-10 Top returners: Savanna Power (Sr.), Allison Redmond (Jr.), Haley Strout (Jr.), Maddie Brochu (Jr.), Amanda Quirion (Jr.), Hannah Hale (Jr.), Katie Richards (Jr.), Celie Deagle (So.), Ryley Burkhart (So.), Mikayla Bolduc (So.) Key newcomers: Sarah Kirkwood (Sr.), Lilya Bakibayeva (Jr.), Jena Hall (Jr.), Lara Kaiser (Jr.), Melissa Mitchell (So.), Brittney Stetkis (So.) Maria Beaulieu (Fr.) Outlook: Quirion and Redmond are the top players for Skowhegan this spring. Quirion is described by her coach as an aggressive baseline player while Redmond likes to come up to the net. Coach’s comment: “I was surprised that many of the newcomers this year were so diverse, age-wise. That should benefit us as a growing program. We've built a strong foundation over the past few seasons that has made us a very cohesive team. We are ready to take the next step and start adding wins to the record.”

Coach: Chris King (3rd season) Last season: 0-12 Top returners: Derek Withee (Jr.), Sam Wheeler (So.), Jon Lee (So.), Ben Pelletier (Jr.), Pat Poirier (So.) Key newcomers: Jubal Horton (Jr.), Dan Aldrich (Fr.), Samuel Edmondson (Fr.), Devin LaChapelle (Fr.), Jon Paradis (Fr.), Austin Fredrick (Fr.), Minh Le (Jr.), Chase Palmer (Jr.), Derek Withee (Jr.) Outlook: A host of new faces is great news for a Skowhegan program that struggled last season in Class A. King is impressed with the enthusiasm and attitude of the newcomers so far but is just working on the basics of the game so any contributions from them are well into the future. Coach’s comment: “I am hoping to win some matches this year and get some experience for the younger players. The returning players have had a few years to learn and have improved since last year. There was a nice turnout of freshmen this year and the hope is that we can build on them for the coming years. The veterans will provide good leadership to the younger players and help develop them.”

GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Dave Evans (1st season) Last season: 10th in KVAC A Top returners: Anna Marshall (Jr., hurdles), Gabrielle Martineau (Sr., jumps), Adrianna Martineau (So., sprints), Brianna LaPlante (Jr., distance) Key newcomers: Nicole Sevey (Jr.), Nicolette Curran (Fr.), Delaney Curran (Fr.), Holly Lupo (Fr.), Allison Lancaster (Fr.) Outlook: The Indians should be competitive in KVAC A. Gabrielle Martineau finished sixth in the 100-meter dash at the KVAC A meet last season and she should be among the team’s top scorers. Numbers are up and first-year coach Evans said the team could surprise this season. Coach’s comments: “We have a number of girls who could challenge for a spot on the KVAC team. We’re just a few kids away from being a serious challenger in the KVAC.”

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Dave Evans (1st season) Last season: 6th in KVAC A; 15th in Class A Top returners: Jacob Weese (Jr., throws, jumps), Brian Crawley (Jr., jumps), Derek Lupo (Jr., distance), Dale Bickford (Jr., distance), Kenikki Hutchinson (Jr., distance) Key newcomers: Brandon Stone (Jr., sprints, throws), Isaac Damon (Fr., jumps) Outlook: The Indians don’t have much depth, but should still have some strong individual performances this spring. Weese should contend in a few throwing events. He was sixth in the shot put and 10th in the discus at the KVAC A meet last season. Coach’s comment: “We don’t have the numbers to make an impact the KVAC’s, but we have some kids who should do really, really well. We’ll have some success.”

Kew newcomers: Becca Bergeron (Sr., sprints), Michaela Forsten (So., sprints), Katy King (So., sprints, throws), Sydney Longly (So., sprints), Alice Miller (So., throws), Courtney Steward (So., throws), Morgan Pluntke (So., throws), Connor Pinkham (So., distance), Makayla Leeman (Fr.), Riley Tennant (Fr.), Lauren Young (Sr.) Outlook: The Cobras are poised for a competitive season. Dana produced well last year, finishing fifth in the javelin and seventh in the 3,200 at the MVC meet. Landry returns as one of the top throwers in the MVC as well. She finished third in the discus at the conference meet. Coach’s comment: “We’re looking to put on a show right when we get off the bus.”

Coach: Craig Knight (4th season) Last season: 4-11 in Western C Top returners: Becca Bergeron (Sr., 2B/3B), Kara Hebert (Sr., SS), Courtney Turner (Sr., P), Lacey Fenlason (Jr., P/OF), Tiffany Mayo (Jr., OF/3B), Ashlee Knight (So., IF/P) Key newcomers: Shelby Royce (So., IF), Kaitlyn Cowan (So., OF), Savannah Mitchell (So., OF), Macy Andrews (Fr., IF/OF), Angie Brown (Fr., OF), Chantel Diamond (Fr., OF), Mikayla Fortin (Fr., OF), Brittany Lewis (Fr., IF), Brooklyn Lewis (Fr., C), Skyla Murray (Fr., IF), Jessica Vaillancourt (Fr., IF) Outlook: For the past few years, the Cobras have been a good team in a tough, balanced league. Turner and Fenlason are both excellent pitchers when they are on their game. That will be a key, especially since most of the rest of the team is young. Coach’s comment: “This group of kids is awesome. They want to practice. They’re all good kids. They’re here to learn. When you’ve got that, that’s pretty cool.”

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Dan Foss (8th season) Last season: 13th in MVC Top returners: Ryan Rathburn (Sr., jumps, throws), Israel Davis (Jr., sprints), Justin Adams (Jr., middle-distance, jumps), Cameron Aberuzzse (So., middle-distance, distance). Kew newcomers: Cody Lehay (Sr., sprints), Charlie Landry (Jr., throws), Jake Flannigan (Jr., middle-distance, hurdles), Glenn Lumbert (So., throws), Darren Sheritan (So., throws), Justin Oliveira (Sr.), John North (Fr.), Anthony Toreatti (Fr.), Ethan Cossaboom (Fr.), Elliot Gore (Fr.), John Layman (Fr.), Robert Keller (Fr.) Outlook: The rejuvenated Cobras doubled in size this season, with 16 boys coming out. The team had just eight last season. The Cobras are strong in the sprinting and throwing events and could be a factor in the MVC. Coach’s comment: “Our numbers exploded. They were unbelievable. The guys we have coming back are real strong, too.”

Key newcomers: Cole McDonald (So.), Josh Houle (Fr.), Sharif Abdel-Rihim (Fr.), Kyle Merrill (Fr.) Outlook: Price is a captain and the Cobras’ No. 1 singles player.

I have a dedicated group of girls. We are working on a lot of conditioning in the cafeteria.”

Dylan Belanger, Marden and Mathieu started every game last season as eighth graders, so there is some varsity experience. Malloy and Dylan Belanger are the top hitters for the Cavs. Coach’s comment: “We have six guys who started every game last year coming back. We’re young and green, but we played last year.”

Coach: Scott Laweryson (1st season) Last season: 4-9 in Western D Top returners: Shannon Rich (Sr., SS), Whitney Vincent (Sr., 2B), Ashley Hines (Sr., 1B), Jocelyn Laweryson (Sr., UT), Katie Blanchard (Sr., OF), Jennifer Hovey (Jr., IF), Sydney Vincent (So., P/IF) Key newcomers: Cindy Schultz (Sr., P/IF), Karin McKenzie (Sr., OF), Hali McQuilkin (Jr., OF), Mikala Frigon (Jr., IF), Megan Medlin (So., IF), Bailey Miller (So., C), Kimberly Bergeron (So., C), Kelly Bergeron (Fr., OF), Kirsten Mathieu (Fr., P/IF), Teagan Laweryson (Fr., P/IF), Stefanie Dizney (Fr., OF), Meghan Hunnewell (Fr., OF) Outlook: Coach Laweryson takes over after serving as former coach Robin Lindeman’s assistant last year. He said the Cavaliers are working a lot on fundamentals this year and he is shooting for a winning record. Coach’s comment: “We’ve got a lot of seniors with a lot of experience who should help lead the way.”

Coach: Ken Nadeau (3rd season) Last season: 15th in Class C Top returners: Julian Jackson (Sr., throws), Austin Mermette (Jr., sprints) Key newcomers: Carrington Miller (So., jumps), Josh West (So., sprints, jumps), Outlook: Miller and West should provide some scoring for the Cavaliers this spring. Jackson and Mermette enjoyed strong seasons last year and should improve this spring. Coach’s comment: “I think we’ll be extremely competitive, especially the newcomers.”

Coach: Ken Nadeau (3rd season) Last season: 30th in Class C Top returners: Karen McKenzie (Sr., sprints), Shannon Rich (Sr., sprints), Jen Hovey (Jr., middle distance), Jocelyn Laweryson (Sr.) Key newcomers: Not available at press time Outlook: Valley once again will field a small team, although the numbers are up a bit. Nadeau said 16 girls came out this year compared to about 13 from last year. The returners should be competitive. Nadeau said Hovey is in line for a breakout season in the 800. Coach’s comment: “We have a small team, but we expect to be competitive.”

Coach: Ian Wilson (15th season) Last season: Class B state champ, KVAC champ Top returners: Emily Karter (Sr., sprints), Katy Massey (Sr., sprints), Emily Sakal (Sr., throws), Courtney Williams (Sr., distance), Hannah Jabar (Jr., sprints), Lauren Massey (Jr., sprints), Olivia Thurston (Jr., sprints), Bethany Brown (So., distance), Alexa Frame (So., sprints), Alex Jensen (So., sprints) Key newcomers: Georgia Bolduc (So., sprints), Gabrielle Bridger (Fr., jumps), Jenn Christensen (Fr., sprints), Jenna Nawfel (Fr., jumps) Outlook: The defending state and KVAC champ Purple Panthers return a loaded team that is favored to successfully defend their titles. Thurston and Brown are coming off dominant indoor seasons and are poised to win some titles this spring. Thurston is the defending Class B 300 hurdles champ while Brown finished third in the 1,600 and 3,200 events at the state meet last season. Sakal, Williams and Katy and Lauren Massey should also score well. Coach’s comment: “There is no question we have a strong team. We have high expectations this season.”

BOYS TENNIS

CLEARING HURDLES: Waterville’s Alex Rowe returns to the track team this season in the jumping events. The Purple Panthers finished third in Class B after winning the KVAC meet.

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Ian Wilson (15th season) Last season: 3rd in Class B, Won KVAC Top returners: Jeff Hale (Sr., distance), Alex Rowe (Sr., jumps), Jake Sirois (Sr., sprints), Isaiah Spofford (Sr., sprints), Matt Lee (Jr., sprints), Nick Margitza (Jr., throws), Aaron Saucier (Jr., sprints), Devin Burgess (So., pole vault), Darien Acero (Jr., jumps), Max Brown (Jr., sprints) Newcomers: Phil Bergeron (Jr., throws), Alan Armony (Fr., sprints), David Bailey (Fr., throws), Joseph Bellavia (Fr., distance), Troy Gurski (Fr., throws), Jordhan Levine (Fr., sprints), Tommy Samson (Fr., sprints). Outlook: The Panthers came up a bit short at the Class B state meet last season, but have enough talent and depth to contend for the crown this year. They have 63 boys out this spring. They are covered in all the events. Spofford is coming off a strong indoor season in which he won state titles in the 55 and triple jump. Burgess also won the pole vault at the indoor championship meet. Coach’s comment: “We had a pretty successful indoor season. We’re more talented and deeper than what we were last year.”

Coach: Jim Begin (13th season) Last season: 9-3, lost in Eastern B quarterfinals Top returners: Matt Lynch (Sr.), Nico Schultz (Sr.), Marcus Godin (Sr.), Callum Thomas (Jr.), Ben Roy (Jr.) Key newcomers: Thomas Greenspan (Sr.), Kyle Marrache (Jr.), Alex Sasuclark (Jr.), Jimmy Lavin (Jr.) Outlook: The Waterville boys team hasn’t had a losing season in 16 years and there’s no reason to believe that streak will end this spring. Godin will likely play in the first singles slot for the Purple Panthers. Greenspan and Thomas are likely competing for the other two singles spots on the team. An impressive 24 athletes came out for the team. Coach’s comment: “As usual, we don’t have a big singles stud but we have nice depth. The first three players are interchangeable. We got a good group of freshmen as well. My goal realistically is to go 9-3 or 10-2. If we do that, we’ll put ourselves in a good position.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Jill Cristan (1st season) Last season: 9-3, Eastern Class B Quarterfinals Top returners: Lexi Russo (Sr.), Sarah Walker (Sr.), Lauren Hallenbeck (So.) Key newcomers: Colleen O' Donnell (Fr.), Olivia Lopes (Fr.), Brittany Saulter (Jr.) Jayme Saulter (Fr.), Emily Dufour (Fr.), Melanie Bureau (So.) Outlook: Cristan is no stranger to the Waterville tennis program after having coached the JV girls team for the last six years. She inherits two solid pieces in Russo and Walker. Russo will likely play a doubles position, while Walker is currently slated for a singles slot. Lopes, O’Donnell and the Saulter sisters will all be competing for varsity starting time this spring. Coach’s comment: “It’s a young group with background knowledge. They’re ready to play. They’re newcomers but I see this team going very far. They know the game. They’re a strong team. I seem them doing quite well. Russo and Walker both are great leaders and they know how to work the practices.”

Coach: Matt Madore (2nd season) Last season: 2-14 in Eastern B Top returners: Alyson Pullen (Sr., 1B), Sadie Dixon (Sr., 3B), Katie Tilton (Sr., P/OF), Taylor Tudela (Sr., OF), Kylee Gardiner (Sr., C), Grace Gould (Jr., 1B/OF), Kendra Johnson (Jr., 2B), Danielle Jacques (Jr., P/SS/CF), Morgan Pellerin (So., P/2B/CF), Jenna Gagnon (So., SS) Key newcomers: Blair Reuger (Sr., IF), Molly Brown (So., UT) Outlook: Madore said the skill levels have improved across the board, and he’s hoping that translates into an improved record. Gardiner is the leader on the field, and all three pitchers should get some innings. Pullen is also a steady player at first base. Coach’s comment: “I have no clue what’s going to happen when we get outside, but I can see wins happening this year, and not waiting until we’re 0-10 before we start doing it.”

Coach: Don Sawyer (4th season) Last season: 19-1, won Class B state championship Top returners: Kyle Bishop (Sr., LF-P), Tim Locke (Sr., 3B-P), Cam Sawyer (Sr., 2B), Mark Beckim (Sr., OF-IF), J.T. Whitten (Jr., 1B-P), Ryan Veilleux (Sr., OF), Tyler Bouchard (So., SS-P), Lance Lefebvre (Jr., IF-P) Key newcomers: Mike O’Neil (Jr., OF), Jacob Porfirio (Jr., P), Racean Wood (So., C-OF), Aiden Fitzgerald (Fr., C) Outlook: The Purple Panthers return a number of key players from last season’s state championship club, including Locke and Bishop, who went a combined 16-0 on the mound. Sawyer is a four-year starter at second base, and Whitten is a three-year starter at first. Either Whitten or Bouchard will move into the Waterville pitching rotation this season. The Panthers have the talent to contend for the state title again. Coach’s comment: “With our starting pitching, the way it’s set up, we have two of the top pitchers in Class B. That’s a nice luxury to have.”

Staff file photo by David Leaming

QUALITY START: Waterville pitcher Tim Locke went 8-0 last season and returns for the Class B state champions.

Turner is one of the top pole vaulters in the state and Sintetos should produce, as well. Turner finished fourth in the pole vault at the Class B meet last season. Coach’s comment: “We’re going to be very deep in a lot of events. We’re going to be very competitive.”

SOFTBALL Coach: Steve Blood (3rd season) Last season: 11-6, lost in Eastern B quarterfinals Top returners: Julie Riordan (Sr., P/CF/1B), Kaite Bernard (Sr., P/CF/1B), Lynsey Vigue (Sr., SS/C), Kylee Risinger (Sr., 3B), Mackenzie Drake (Sr., P/OF), Jordyn Pomerleau (Jr., RF/2B), Mariah Chenard (Jr., 1B/LF), Allison LeClair (So., 2B/RF) Key newcomers: Stephanie Brawn (Jr., 1B), Jennifer Poulin (So., C), Jessica Pare (So., OF), Morgan Clark (So., 3B), Megan Richards (So., P/LF), Autumn Poulin (Fr., CF), Rachel Sirois (Fr., 2B), Morgan Guimond (Fr., OF) Outlook: The Black Raiders have six starters back, including Riordan and Bernard, two quality pitchers with experience. The other positions also look like they’re in good hands, so Winslow should be a competitive team in Eastern B. Coach’s comment: “There’s a lot of speed, and we look to utilize that. Hopefully, we’ll do a little bit of small ball and move some people around.”

GIRLS TENNIS Coach: Linda McCann (4th season) Last season: 3-9, Eastern Class B Quarterfinals Top returners: Alicia Higgins (Sr.), Jessica McCaslin (Sr.), Dianna Wendell (Sr.), Madeleine Daily (Jr.), Jillian Dupuis (Jr.), Brittni Martell (Jr.), Courtney McCaslin (Jr.), Abby Roy (Jr.), Abbi Lutz (Jr.), Allison Woodside (Jr.), Karlee Price (So.) Key newcomers: Elizabeth Milhomens (Sr.), Kayla LaBrie (Jr), Marisa Bickford (Fr.), Kalianna Carpenter (Fr.), Brennah O'Connell (Fr.), Lillian Pellerin (Fr.), Monica Tompkins (Fr.) Outlook: Winslow returns just two of seven starters from last season, so the emphasis this season will be gaining experience for the future. McCaslin will likely play No. 1 singles for Winslow. Daily is the other returning starter and will be asked to play a larger role this spring. Coach’s comment: “We are a very young team. We have only four seniors this year. Those four were freshmen when the team was founded. We consistently have a large group of girls because we are a no-cut program. The program is definitely growing. ”

BASEBALL Coach: Kyle Gunzinger (1st season) Last season: 12-6, reached East B quarterfinals Top returners: John McCabe (Sr., C), Kris Smith (Sr., 3B-P), Zach Carey (Sr., OF-P), MacKenzie Michaud (Jr., 2B), Caleb Hill (Jr., UT-P), Jordan Holt (Jr., OF-P), Eric Crawley (Jr., C-DH), Mike McLaughlin (Jr., P-1B-OF), Donald Camp (So., SS-P) Key newcomers: Mike Poulin (Jr., P-3B), Joseph Hopkins (So., OF), Gabe Smith (So., OF), Logan Hewes (So., 1B-P) Outlook: Gunzinger, who coached the Waterville American Legion baseball team last summer, takes over a talented Black Raiders sqaud that should contend for a playoff spot. McCabe is one of the top hitters in the KVAC. Holt is the top returning pitcher, and along with Carey, Camp and Kris Smith will see a lot of innings. Gunzinger plans on playing a wide open style of baseball. Coach’s comment: “We want to be competitive in each and every game.”

BOYS TENNIS Coach: David Deas (4th season) Last season: 1-11 Top returners: Mike McCann (Sr.), Anthony Breton (Jr.), Graham Clark (Jr), Tyler Benedict (So.), Sean McCarthy (Sr.), E.J. Casillan (So), Darren Veilleux (Sr.), Scott Gilbert (Jr), Conner Bourgoin (Jr.), Pascal Swiercz (Sr) Key newcomers: Brandon Deas (Fr.), Aren Carpenter (Fr.), Logan Vashon (Fr.), Nathaniel Lombardi (Fr.), Drew Cater (Fr.), Skyler Henry (Jr.), Shane O'Connell (Jr.) Outlook: A three-sport standout athlete, McCann will be the captain and the No. 1 singles player for the Black Raiders. Benedict is expected to move up the ladder to a more prominent role on the team this spring. In just four years as a varsity program, Winslow has become a consistent, reputable team. Coach’s comment: “The biggest kick for me is seeing the youth develop. My primary focus is to get kids interested and excited about tennis. Mostly what I want to see is kids setting and reaching some goals.

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Ed Van Tassel (4th season) Last season: 17th in Class C, 6th in MVC Top returners: Travis Hutchins (Sr., throws), Joey Brennan (Sr., sprints), Dan Moody (So., sprints), Dylan Berney (So., middle-distance), Richard Van Twistern (Sr., distance), Riley Fitzgerald (Sr., sprints), Hunter Sherman (Sr., throws), Colby Laflamme (Sr., sprints), Chris Halligan (Sr., throws), Josh Seekins (Jr., throws), Sam Vigue (So., throws), Marc Hachey (So., distance), Kameron Souza (Jr., distance) Key newcomers: Tom Quimby (Fr., distance), Tom Piettroski (Fr., distance), Ethan Squires (Fr., sprinter), Zach Nadeau (So., throws), Jake Piper (So., sprints), Casey Nadeau (So., throws), Hunter Kilgore (So., distance), Vincent Faivre (Sr., jumps, sprints), Tom Smith (Sr., jumps) Outlook: Hutchins returns as one of the top throwers in the class. He is the defending Class C state champ in the discus. He also finished sixth at the state meet in the javelin. He finished second in the javelin and shot put at the MVC meet to go along with his victory in the discus. The Ramblers feature a deep team this season and should be in the mix in the MVC. Coach’s comment: “We are hoping to improve in the conference and states. We are really happy with the number of kids we have out, and we hope it translates into points at the end of the year.” Staff file photo by Joe Phelan

QUALITY PERFORMANCE: Winthrop’s Karen Rice won the 100- and 200-meter at last season’s Mountain Valley Conference track and field championships. Rice is the defending Class C state champion in the 100 as well.

GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD Coach: Ed Van Tassel (4th season) Last season: 7th in Class C, 2nd in MVC Top returners: Anna Doyle (Sr., distance), Grace Burnett (Sr., distance) Sarah Warner (Sr., distance), Karen Rice (Sr., sprints), Mary Claire Blanchard (So., distance, hurdles), Lauren Fellwood (Jr., jumps, sprints) Key newcomers: Rachel Ingram (Fr., newcomers), Pheobe Armillotti (Fr., jumps, sprints) Outlook: The Ramblers should once again be competitive in the MVC and Class C. Rice is the defending the state champ in the 100 and Doyle should score well in the distance events. Burnett finished fourth in the 400 at the Class C meet and Van Tassel said the Ramblers are still trying to put together their relay teams. Coach’s comment: “We’re hoping to be competitive in the conference and at states. It will be a matter of how the points get distributed. We are lacking depth a bit, though.”

BOYS LACROSSE Coach: Jared Knowlton (1st season) Last season: Played as a club team Key newcomers: Luke Emery (Jr., A/MF), Zach Bessette (Fr., D), Mitch Bessette (Sr., MF), Jon Dale (Sr., D), Kyle Evans (Jr., A/MF), Jesse Evans (So., A/MF), Gabe Giguere (Jr., A/MF), Dan Giguere (Jr., A/MF), Gray Hill (Jr., MF) Outlook: This first-year team could be a factor right away in Eastern B. Knowlton raves about the abilities of Emery, especially the attacker’s impressive shot. Maranacook/Winthrop had good success as the Kennebec Cannons and hopes to earn a playoff berth. Coach's comment: "I really think we can have a great year. Our defenders ... teams will have a hard time getting past them. I think we can have a great year and it would be great to see these kids get a playoff berth in their first year."

SOFTBALL Coach: Sean Scully (2nd season) Last season: 3-11 in Western C Top returners: Sasha Flaherty (Sr., P/SS/CF), Amy Belanger (Jr., P), Meagan Scully (Jr., C/RF), Alison Sekerak (Jr., 2B), Teri Tricarico (Jr., LF), Caitlin Allen (So., OF/2B) Key newcomers: Danielle Pease (So., 1B/OF), Megan Bateman (So., RF), Jessica Ames (Fr., CF/3B), Alyssa Arsenault (Fr., LF/2B), Collette Connor (Fr., UT), Randi Dennett (Fr., C/SS), Kristen Doughty (Fr., OF/1B/P), Molly Kieltyka (Fr., 2B/OF), Catherine Ouellette (Fr., 3B/SS/C), Maureen Tierney (Fr., UT), Allie Conant (Fr., UT) Outlook: While the Ramblers are young, they also have several players who have played a lot of softball, and Coach Scully is familiar with them from his days coaching at the middle school level. Belanger will likely be the No. 1 pitcher and Flaherty will take over at shortstop. Coach’s comment: “I’m seeing a lot of enthusiasm. A lot of them have been working in the offseason, taking lessons for pitching and field work.”

Coach: Marc Fortin (16th season) Last season: 3-11 in Class C West Top returners: Ryan Conant (Sr., INF-P), Eric Duplissis (Sr., C-Util.), Ryan Castonguay (Sr., 1B-P), Travis Luce (Sr., PSS), Travis Sherman (Sr., LF), Josh Lapointe (Sr., DH), Tyler Reeve (Jr., P-OF), Tyler Foster (Jr., C), Connor Doyle (Jr., 2B), Tyler Stockford (So., 1B), Shane Ricker (So., 2B). Key newcomers: Chris Bowers (Jr., OF) Jared Hanson (Fr., P-OF), Drew Stratton (Fr., OF), Zack Steele (Fr., INF). Outlook: With the return of three players who missed last season because of violations of the school’s conduct code, the Ramblers should be competitive in the Mountain Valley Conference. Conant, Reeve and Luce give Winthrop a solid pitching rotation while Duplissis and Conant both hit over .500 as sophomores. Coach’s comment: “We’ve got three nice starters, I just wish we had a little more depth. I think we’re going to hit the ball pretty well.”

Coach: Wilbur Shardlow (2nd season) Last season: 12-0, lost in Western C quarterfinals Top returners: Adam St. Pierre (Sr.), Evan Arbour (Sr.), Coldy Plasterer (Sr.), Ryan Vale (Sr.), Pat Flynn (Sr.), Connor Chu (Sr.), Brady Frautten (Sr.), Dan Miles (Jr.), Dalton-Jesse Cummins (So.), Justin Lapointe (So.), Tom Pietroski (So.), Declan Chu (So.), Peter Michelsen (So.) Key newcomers: Not available at press time. Outlook: Winthrop is loaded for a run at the MVC title and perhaps a shot at the state Class C crown. The Ramblers return all seven starters from last season. St. Pierre will play No. 1 singles, followed by Arbour and Miles. Chu and Frautten provide depth in doubles. Coach’s comment: “After the first three spots, there’s a lot of competition. They’re pretty realistic. They’re confident but not cocky. I’ve got a great group of level-headed kids.”

Coach: Allison Miles (2nd season) Last season: 7-5, lost in Western B semifinals Top returners: Katherine Spahr (Sr.), Molly Lindsey (Sr.), Nikki Scott (Sr.), Amber Pritchard (So.), Shauna Carlson (So.), Jessica Scott (So.), Amber Gilman (So.) Key newcomers: Emily Leonard (So.), Emmah Spahr (Fr.) Outlook: The Ramblers suffered significant losses to graduation in Kelsey Ouellette and Elaine Theriault. Just three of the seven starters return this season. Lindsey, Pritchard, Scott and Spahr will compete for the top singles spots. Coach’s comment: “We’ve had 11 girls turn out for the team. It’s kind of exciting as everything is fresh and new. The girls are really excited at the opportunity to try and move up a position or two. They’re really motivated.”
