2015 Girls’ Soccer Preview: Gray-New Gloucester


Coach: Kiaran McCormack (fourth year)

Conference: WMC: Class: B

Last year: 8-7-1, lost in Western B quarterfinals.

Returning players: Seniors — Kaelyn Woods, Sarah Giggey (MF); Juniors — Izzy Detroy (FB); Sophomore — Emma Woods (F).

Key losses: Zoe Adams (G), Maria Valente (FB/MF), Ashley Moreau (MF), Caitlin Holmquist (MF), Michaela MacDonald (FB), Emily Hotham (FB/MF), Anisa Hayman (MF/FB), Karla Shufelt (F), Kiersten Stritch (FB).

Promising newcomers: Freshmen — Alexa Thayer (F), Bri Jordan (MF)

Season outlook: The Patriots graduated an experienced senior group that will be hard to replace. The Woods sisters should lead the attack up front while Giggey is a four-year starter in the middle. Detroy anchors a solid defense. Gray-New Gloucester hopes to build off last year’s playoff berth and make another run at the tournament.
