Overview: Girouard returns to the Blue Devils varsity squad where she was a 1,000-point scorer. Lewiston made great strides last year, reaching the Eastern A prelims and nearly beating Mt Blue. Blais is the only returning starter but the Blue Devils have a number of players that saw action last year. The Blue Devils return seniors Swart and Brochu, who missed much of last year to injury. Blanche and Eliasen are young players with promise that saw time last year Lewiston hopes to continue the progression this year and build off last year’s success.
