Coach: Wanda Ward-McLean (26th year)

Last year’s record: 12-1-1 (Eastern B quarterfinalist)

Returning letter winners: Seniors — Sarah Durgin (B), Emily Murphy (F), Jennifer Vallee (F), Kylie Vincent (MF); Juniors — MyKayla McCann (F/M); Sophomores — Amanda Jordan (MF), Kayla Royer (B).

Key losses: Courtney Erskine, Miranda Hinkley, Krissy Ellis, Megan Miller, Taylor Perry, Molly Hibler, Cheyenne McCarthy, Brianna Dostie, Maria Dumont, Kristen Capen.

Promising newcomers: Seniors — Briana Dionne (MF), Briana Luce (G), Shelby Poland (B), Lynn Lussenhop (MF); Juniors — Rosie Delagarza (B/MF), Karina Rodriguez (B); Sophomores — Taylor Eells (G), Morgan Erskine (F), Casey Fitcher (F), Adrianna Newton (F).

Outlook: As a group, this is one of the more inexperienced Leavitt squads in a while, but don’t mistake inexperience with ineptitude. This group is talented and there are several older newcomers who will be asked to lead right away. The record may not be as gaudy as in years past, but these Hornets are going to be dangerous in the playoff season. if they can get over having two new goalies and play solid on the back end, this “building year” may only be the first step to more dominance.
