Coach: Amy Hediger (seventh year)

Class: B Conference: WMC

Last year: 6-8-1, lost in West B preliminary round

Returning letter-winners: Juniors — Amanda Dube (F), Mary Everett (F), Kyla Sturtevant (F), Ainsley Parent (F), Emily Gibson (MF), Abbie L’Italien (D); Sophomore — Carly King (F).

Key losses: Paige Brousseau, Amanda Gibson, Mimi Carmichael, Melora Lavoie, Sally Littlefield, Richelle Pratt.

Promising newcomers: Senior — Liz Callahan (G); Junior — Becky Learned (MF); Freshman — Sadie Archer (MF).

Season outlook: After their first playoff appearance in years, the Knights graduated 11 seniors. Six juniors return to the starting lineup from last year’s team with a goal in mind to return to the postseason. Dube, Parent, King, Sturtevant, and Everett return to the speedy front line with quick stick work. Gibson, L’Italien, and Archer bring additional speed and aggressiveness to the defense and can easily transition the ball from defense to offense. Callahan steps into the goalie role. The Knights have previously played a B/C schedule and move to a mostly all B schedule this year.
