Coach: Adam Zukowski (fourth year)

Returning players: Boys: Senior — Ben Schaeffer; Juniors — Randall Stephens, Dylan Fowler, Danny Marshall, Jeremy Holmquist, Aaron Grondin; Girls: Senior — Tayla Robbins; Junior — Elizabeth Pflugardt; Sophomore — Paige Severance.

Key losses: Boys: Jackson Marshall; Girls: Caroline Glennon.

Promising newcomers: Boys: Sophomores — David McCann; Elijah Locke, Cam Harmer; Freshman — Wil Shafer; Girls: Junior — Lydia Larson; Sophomores — Jasmine Harper, Katie Hersom; Freshman — Grace Ferguson.

Outlook: The Patriots are counting on an infusion of youth to help them compete in the strong Western Maine Conference. Shafer and McCann, a soccer convert, join Schaeffer to form the boys’ top three. The girls have more experience than recent teams, and newcomers Ferguson and Harper should help their depth.

Coach’s comment: “We have a solid top three on the boys side, so I’m looking to get two more people in there to step up. We have a lot of girls back for the first time in awhile, so I’m looking forward to seeing how they mature.” — Coach Adam Zukowski
