Coach:  Art Chamberlin (17th year)

 Last year’s record: 7-8, lost in Western C quarterfinals

Returning letter winners: Juniors — Larissa Bryant (F), Alyssa Wade (MF), Paige Murphy (F), Miranda Shurtleff (MF), Myriah Porter (FB), Mariah Larsen (FB), Erin Turner (MF); Sophomores  — Michelle Morrison (F), Natalie Bolduc (F), Ambyr Wilson (SP), Gretchen Bradbury (MF), Natasha Deroche (G), Kayla Gaudin (FB).

 Key losses:  Lindsey Brann (MF), Cassie Moretto (F), Jane Hebert (MF/G), Emily Chase (SK), Emily Luce (FB), Kirstin Blood (FB), Kelly Gould (F).

 Promising newcomers: Sophomores —Addy Fuller (F), Samantha Morse (FB), Silvia Lutick (F); Freshmen  — Lindsy Crutchfield (MF), Bryce Parent (FB).

 Outlook: The Cougars were hit hard by graduation, losing seven players overall and five starters. Dirigo then lost Larsen and Turner to injuries suffered in a car accident, which could put both out for the season.  There are still 11 returning players but only five are upperclassmen.

 Coach’s comment:

 “There is a good group of juniors and sophomores with some varsity experience. How quickly they can fill the void left by graduation of seven seniors and the two girls injured in the car accident will be critical to our success. We hope to improve our team play with every game. ”  — Coach Art Chamberlin
