Bishop Fenwick Winter Sports Capsules 2012-13

BOYS HOCKEY

Last season: 2-16-2 (did not qualify for playoffs)

Head coach: Dan Lynch (3rd year, 17-21-4)

Key returnees: Mike Napolitano, Sr. RW; Drew Thibodeau, Sr. RW; Jake Brennan, Sr. D; Mark Todisco, Sr. D; P.J. Usalis, Sr. D; Brian Bassett, Jr. F; Brian Corcoran, Jr. F; Pat O’Leary, Jr. G.

It’ll be a great season if: Fenwick can take the hard lessons it learned last winter during its first season as a Division 1 club and put them to good use in 2012-13. The Crusaders, while young, do have terrific speed and a solid netminder in O’Leary.

GIRLS HOCKEY

Last season: 0-16

Head coach: Doug Anderson (1st year)

Team captains: Demi Velonis, Sr., D; Alexandra Pagano, Sr., F; Madison Hunt., Sr., F; Emily Galligan, So., D

Other key returnees: Megan McGonagle, So., D; Justine Armand, So., D; Meghan Woodworth, Fr., G; Gabby Dotolo, Fr., F; Maggie Clark, So., F

It’ll be a great season if: They can build on the leadership from six seniors. The Crusaders have 19 kids, including two freshmen and 10 sophomores. It’s a group with some on-ice experience, but they’ll need to adjust to the high school game in a hurry since Fenwick has a pair of games before this section goes to print.

BOYS BASKETBALL

Last season: 7-13 (Did not qualify for the postseason)

Head coach: Mike Kane (5th year)

Team captains: None named yet.

Other key returnees: Dom Luoni, Jr. G; Matt Costello, Jr. F; Ben Maxner, Sr. C; Rashad DeSilva, Jr, G; Fran Hannon, Sr. F; Joe Bucchieri, Sr. G.

It’ll be a great season if: The Crusaders can build off their late-season success from a year ago. Fenwick returns six experienced players from a team that won four of its last five games a year ago. Juniors Travis Maxner and Eric Razney have also played well in the preseason, which should give this team some added depth.
