Coach: Wanda Ward-McLean (27th year)

Last year’s record: 8-5-1 (Lost in Western B quarterfinal)

Returning players: Seniors — Rosie DeLaGarza (B), MyKayla McCann (F); Juniors — Taylor Eells (G), Morgan Erskine (F), Casey Fichter (F), Amanda Jordan (M), Adrie Newton (F), Kayla Royer (B).

Key losses: Sarah Durgin, Jen Vallee, Emily Murphy, Kylie Vincent, Lynn Lussenhop, Shelby Poland, Brianna Dionne, Briana Luce.

Promising newcomers: Seniors — Karina Rodriguez (B), Courtney Riordan (B); Juniors — Cassie Griffin (M), Amber LeDuc, Kasidy Stevenson (F/M); Sophomores — Morgan Shaw (M), Holly Gallup (M); Freshmen — Bri DeGone (F), Meagan Dow (M), Emily Shaw (B/M), Cheryl Fichter (F), Annie Castonguay (B).

Outlook: A perennial contender in Class B, the Hornets had an off-year last year — well, for them, anyway. The goal this year is to return to the team’s tytpical top-of-the-conference form, and there is a good string nucleus of players back to help in that endeavor. There is also a very good group of younger players in the mix here.
