Coach: Kathy Little (eighth year)

 Last year’s record: 12-1-2, lost in Western C quarterfinal

 Returning letter winners: Seniors — Hailey Girardin (MF), Sophia Goulet (F), Meagan Lawrence (MF), Taylor Paquet (MF); Juniors  — Mary Caron (G), Emily Conner (FB), Stephanie Costello (MF), Dayle Jordan (FB), Emily Rioux (FB), Becky Trytek (FB).

Key losses: Elise Applegate (G), Ali Desjardins (MF), Maggie Gamble (MF), Alex Landry (F), Megan Poulin (FB), Kacie Rioux (MF), Laura St. Pierre (FB); Katie Gosselin (FB), Kaitlin Cornelio (FB).

Promising newcomers: Junior — Meghan Hargreaves (F); Sophomores — Clara Bosco (F), Courtney Costello (FB), Kayla McLellan (F), Kelley McLellan (MF), Emily Poulin (FB); Freshmen — Marley Byrne (MF).

 Outlook: The Saints lost veteran talent from a team that went unbeaten in the regular season and won the MVC title. Still, St. Dom’s has 10 returning players, including Goulet up front. Girardin, Lawrence, Paquet and Costello make for an experienced midfield while Conner, Jordan, Rioux and Trytek bolster the defense. Caron steps into goal to replace Applegate. The Saints still have enough talent and experience to keep them among the top teams in the MVC and Western C.

Coach’s comment:

 “The 2010 season has the potential of being a promising year. This year’s squad comes in versatile, well fit and has the drive to exceed last year’s successful season.”  — Coach Kathy Little
