Coach: Fred Conlogue and John Schoen (first year)

Last year’s record: 11-4-1, lost in Eastern A semifinal

Returning letter winners: Seniors — Chelsea Thompson (MF), Kelly Yardley (F), Emily Deane (G), Taryn Kennedy (FB), Eliza Smiley (FB), Emily Dustin (F), Jenna Pederson (F); Juniors — Abby Flanagan (FB), Hannah Allen (MF), Marlie Mochamer (F), Allison Brown (FB/G); Sophomore — Marina West (MF).

Key losses:  Meredith Allen (MF), Ava Amador (F), Emily Corthell (MF), Sabrina Keach (FB), Arin McLaughlin (MF), Samantha Mochamer (FB), Leigh Ronald (MF), Nara Montenegro (F).

Promising newcomers: Senior — Abbi Davis (MF);  Freshmen — Mackenzie Conlogue (MF), Makenzie Thompson (MF), Chelsea Newhall (MF), Abby Lochala (MF).

Outlook: Conlogue and Schoen are veteran high school coaches and take over a Cougar program that has found consistent success in the last few years under Dave Ronald. Mt. Blue lost an abundance of talent but still has the makings of a playoff team. Thompson was an all-state defender last year and leads a returning group that could keep the Cougars in the hunt.

Coach’s comment:

“Both coaches have enjoyed the attitude and the work ethic of the girls to this point. If we play soccer for 80 minutes, we should be competitive with teams in our league. This young team will get stronger as the season goes.” — Coach
