Season outlook: Doiron was an all-state forward last year and leads a returning group that saw plenty of varsity time. The Cougars have some holes to fill, especially in the middle but Mt. Blue should be solid in back. Conlogue says he’s got a good mix of veteran players and newcomers. He hopes the group can rally together and compete for another tourney spot.
