Bishop Fenwick 2013 Spring Sports Previews


Concerns: Cohesion. Even with all the pieces in place, Guillemette is most concerned with her team playing as a team, and doing so throughout an entire game. Guillemette is also planning on working in some new strategies that could take some time for the Crusaders to grasp.

Coach’s Outlook: “I think we’re capable of very good things. I have high expectations. We want to win our league and make a good run in the tournament, and I think we can do that as long as we stay healthy, committed and work hard.”


Last year’s record: 2-14

Head coach: Ryan Sasso (1st season)

Captains: Sean Gannon, Sr., singles; Zach Mutti, Sr., singles.

Key Returnees: Rob Oprzedek, Sr., doubles; Joe D’Orazio, Jr.; Josh Nikochuck, Soph.; Nick Onessimo, Sr.; Ryan Trott, Sr.

This season will be successful if: The Crusaders keep improving match by match all season long. Bishop Fenwick had its first contest against a tough Austin Prep team and looked better and better as the match went on.


Last year’s record: 8-1

Head coach: Jay Smith (10th season)

Team captains: Rose Fantozzi, Sr., Sprints/Jumps; Elizabeth Marashi, Sr., Hurdles/Pole Vault; Maggie Lepley, Sr., Throws.

Other key returnees: Arianna Maida, Jr., Distance; Hannah Smith, Sr., Middle Distance/Distance; Carolyn Claveau, Sr., Jumps/Throws; Julia Pierce, Sr., Sprints; Nicole Lizotte, Sr., Sprints; Becky Mercuro, Sr., Sprints/Jumps.

Coach’s outlook: “Our numbers are good and we have a very successful core group coming off a strong winter season. A strong senior class will provide leadership, and if a few more girls develop the added depth should allow us to have a good season.”


Last year’s record: 7-2

Head coach: Jay Smith (10th season)

Team captains: Patrick Corcoran, Sr., Throws; Dan Deschenes, Sr., Middle Distance.
