Last year’s record: 13-5 (lost to North Andover, 16-7, in the Division 1 North quarterfinals)
Head coach: Dennis Desroches (7th year)
Captains: Courtney Smith, Sr.; Courtney Hennigan, Sr.; Aly Bortone, Sr.; Shantel Silva, Sr.
Key Returnees: Sarah Godschall, Jr.; Sydney Cooke, Jr.; Adriana Raneri, Jr.; Sarah Napolitano, Jr.; Aly Hennigan, Jr.
Strengths: Leadership. Desroches feels the captains set a good example for his team on the field and off.
Concerns: Inexperience. The Tanners lost nine starters due to graduation, including 100-point scorer Nicole Napolitano and all-star defenders Christine Feudo, Christa Trombley, Bianca Muscato and Victoria Digiacomo, as well as goalie Cheyenne Jackson.
Coach’s Outlook: “Although we will field a relatively new lineup, we are confident that the returning players and younger players will put forth the effort needed to be successful. We have a very challenging nonleague schedule, which should help us compete with the top teams in the NEC.”
Last year’s record:12-5
Head coach: Lorraine Benoit (17 season)
Captains: Dany Chhan, Sr., Rachael Gillis, Sr., Anna Grimalyak, Sr.
Returnees: Tori Thomspon, So.; Alisa Pereira, So.; Eleni Petromelis, Jr.; Kayla Hodas, Jr.
Coach’s Outlook: “I hope we can challenge for the Northeastern Conference. We graduated a couple of players but have our second singles and first doubles returning, so we’ll see what we can do.”
Last year’s record: 7-0
Head coach: Joe Rocha (16th season)
Team captains: Katie Gallo, Sr., Shot Put/Discus; Sam Allen, Sr., Distance; Antonia Pagliuca, Sr., Distance; Rachel Barrett, Sr., High Jump;Hurdles; Sydney May, Sr., Distance
Other key returnees: Lauren Barrett, Jr., Distance; Cynthia Aroke, Soph., 400 Meter Hurdles/ Kat Pence, Jr., Shot Put/Discus; Makayla LaChance, Jr., 400
Coach’s outlook: “We’re very young (only 10 seniors) and lost close to 30 points from last year’s talented team, which will be hard to replace. We’re very strong in throwing and distance and have close to 100 girls out for the team.”
