Coach: Erin Leathers (fourth year)

Last year’s record: 6-8 (Lost in Western Class C quarterfinal)

Returning players: Seniors — Hannah Knight (F), Colette McKeen (F), Meri Brown (M), Brooke Kersey (FB), Brittany Young (G); Juniors — Alyssa Charity (M), Sam Blanchette (F); Sophomores — Dani Ranger (M), Cassidy Bigos (F).

Key losses: Katrina Pulk, Morgan Hutchins, Amber Woods, Jordan Holmes.

Promising newcomers: Senior — Kayla Brown; Juniors — Betsy Noyes (G), Meghan Jordan (M); Sophomore — Kate Bonney (F); Freshmen — Rylee I’Itilien (FB), Brooke Holmquist (F).

Outlook: The returning players outweigh the losses this season, and this fall could be a special one for the Cougars. Tri-captains Knight, McKeen and Brown will bring experience and leadership up the middle and out front, and if the group of newcomers can plug the holes on defense in front of Young and Noyes, the MVC may well have yet another force of a team.

Coach’s comment: “We are excited for this year. we have a lot of returning varsity players, and many of the girls have been playing together for three to four years.” — Coach Erin Leathers
