Coach: Joel Smith (ninth year)

Last year’s record: 9-5-1, lost in Eastern A preliminary

Returning letter winners: Seniors — Shane Smith (MF), Sam Prentiss (MF), Jared Foster (FB), Alex Lee (MF).

Key losses:  Ben Russell (MF), Zack Conlogue (MF), Jamie Sawyer (FB).

Promising newcomers: Senior — Jacob Hartford (FB); Sophomores — Matt Crowley (FB), Steven Yardley (FB); Freshman  — Jamie O’Keefe (F).

Outlook: Russell and Conlogue were both all-state midfielders and leave a significant void. The Cougars lost 12 seniors and have a challenge to replace that talent and experience. The Cougars are young and excited for the opportunity to carve out a place for themselves in Eastern A.

Coach’s comment:

“This year’s team is working hard and at times, have shown signs that they will be competitive. The guys realize that in order to be successful they need to work hard and play solid team defense. The team is definitely excited that they can move forward and compete at a high level.” — Coach
