Coach: Dianne Fenlason (fourth year)
Class: B; Conference: MVC
Last year’s record: 6-6
Returning players: Seniors — Hailee Perkins, Shane Pelletier, Hunter Dalton, Nathan Frost; Junior — Haley Turcotte; Sophomore — Dylan Gordon.
Key losses: Noah Preble, Nathaniel Steele, Tyler Poisson, Cameron Mitchell, Abigail Moreau, Lucas Alley, Trevor Doiron.
Promising newcomers: Sophomore — Scott Jackson; Freshman — Hannah Coates.
What to expect: Spruce Mountain is returning to the MVC conference after several years in the KVAC. It’s difficult to replace seven seniors but the Phoenix feel they will still field a competitive team. Junior Haley Turcotte will bring a great deal of experience and leadership to this year’s squad. All of the returning seniors competed in matches last year and will round out the top five spots.
