Coach: Chris Aube (second year)

Last year’s record: 3-9

 Returning letter winners: Seniors — Ally Martin (SW), Alicia Patrie (MF), Sami Jones (MF), Rachel Caron (FB); Juniors  — Abby Bragg (MF), Danielle Patrie (MF), Ashley Casey (F), Kaitlyn Rines (MF), Natasha Elsman (G), Katie Corson (G); Sophomores  — Elizabeth Damon (ST), Marissa Henderson (FB), Michelle Boutin (FB), Elizabeth Strout (MF), Dakota Warren (MF).

Key losses: Ashlee Hamann (F), Zoe Gillis (MF), Ming Dana (MF), Marissa Hutchinson (MF), Melissa Taylor (F).

Promising newcomers:  Freshmen — Arrabine Dunn (F), Abby Campbell (MF), Sierra Wescott (MF).

Outlook: The Bucks have nine starters back including Martin in the back. Henderson, Damon and Boutin solidify the defense in front of either Elsman or Corson in goal. Buckfield has both Patrie’s, Jones and Bragg returning in the midfield. Casey is a returning striker while Dunn should contribute as well. With a solid defense and so much experience back, the Bucks expect to improve upon last year.

Coach’s comment:

 “Our strength will begin with defense. We have the ability to be stingy on the defensive side of the field. The emergence of our sophomore group of backs has allowed us to move some of our more skilled players to the midfield, which should create more quality scoring opportunities. If we can do this, we can be competitive with anybody.”  —Coach Chris Aube
