Coach’s Outlook: “We’re looking to compete in the NEC and qualify for the state tournament. I believe in these kids and believe we will succeed because we will have good team chemistry in which I put a huge value into.”
Last year’s record: 8-12
Head coach: Paula Donnelly (7th season)
Captains: Alexa Goldman, Sr. D; Catt Singley, Sr. M; Chloe Dorgan Sr. A; Bridget Lawless, Sr. A; Ari Billias, Sr. D.
Key Returnees: Lauren Sullivan, Jr. A.
Strengths: Defense. Goldman is in her fourth year contributing and Donnelly loves her footwork and speed, and sophomores Priscilla Sullivan (no relation to Lauren) and Sarah Vogel also show excellent promise on defense.
Concerns: Inexperience. Donnolly only has five starters returning, and the majority of her lineup is younger kids that haven’t played at the varsity level.
Coach’s Outlook: “Every year we set a goal to make the tournament. We really try to set ourselves up to attain that and want to put ourselves in position where we’re not squeaking in and facing a No. 1 seed.”
Last year’s record: 13-5 (Lost Division 2 North quarterfinals)
Head coach: Nina Rogers (3rd season)
Captains: Allegra Walker, Sr., first doubles.
Key Returnees: Anna Raptunovich, Soph., singles; Veronica Pyatigorskaya, Soph., singles; Vivien Gere, Fr., singles.
This season will be successful if: If the Big Blue make the state tournament. Also, with 24 players on the team and several girls with no tennis experience, it’ll be a sucess, said Rogers, if all 24 girls can play a set of tennis by the end of the spring.
Last year’s record: 5-2
Head coach: Peter Bush (3rd season)
Team captains: Peter Hale, Sr., Two Mile/Relay; Zach Blonder, Sr., 100/Long Jump/Relay; Declan McClung, Sr., 400/Relay; Rob Seymour, Sr., Shot Put/Discus.
