Coach: Gretchen Errington (second year; sixth overall)
Last year's record: 2-12

Key losses: Betsy Noyes, Sam Blanchette, Alyssa Charity, Megan Jordan.

Outlook: Dirigo returns a talented junior class. The Cougars encounter the projected top three teams in the MVC in the opening week. They hope to use those games to build momentum for a playoff push later in the season. Dirigo has dedicated the season to Dani Ranger, a member of the Class of 2013 who died in an automobile accident only days after the conclusion of the 2011 campaign.
Coach's comment: "We can play with the best of them when we put it all together. Getting them to do that consistently is the challenge." — Coach Gretchen Errington
