Coach: Ken Jacques (third year)

Last year’s record: Boys: LF 4th, Jay 5th at Class C states; Girls: LF 3rd at Class C states.

Returning skiers: Boys: Seniors — Cody Jacques, Jake Roy, Ben Hartford, Tom Brenner; Juniors — Alex Hartford, Zach Butterfield, Owen Timberlake, Cameron Rose, Devon Autry; Sophomore — Zach Richards. Girls: Senior — Isabella Randall; Juniors — Emily Acritelli, Cassidy Couture.

Key losses: Alex Rose, Lindsey Jacques, Lexie Niedner.

Promising newcomers: Boys: Freshman — Alex Greenleaf.

Outlook: The boys’ alpine outlook is much rosier at the team level than the girls after the combining of Jay and Livermore Falls. Four seniors and four juniors give the boys’ team depth and talent, and even with the shift to Class B the Phoenix ought to be competitive. The girls are short on people, and that will make the transition a bit tougher, though there is talent among those on the squad.

Coach’s comment: “There is great chemistry within this team and they look forward to competing with the top teams at the Class B level and other teams in the MVC and KVAC.” — Coach Ken Jacques
