Conference: KVAC; Class: A.

Last year’s results: Boys, KVAC champions, second at Class A state meet; Girls, fourth in KVAC, fifth in state.

Returning letter-winners: Boys: Seniors — Ike Doiron, Silas Rogers, Dustin Staples; Junior — Dan Lesko; Sophomores: Liam Welch, Andrew Roberts. Girls: Seniors — Sarah Wade, Anja Nordstrom; Juniors — Leah Hardy, Chenoah Jackson; Sophomore — Miriam Cohen.

Key losses: Boys: Zach Veayo, Sully Jackson; Girls: Ruth Leopold, Shireen Luick, Deanna Richards.

Promising newcomers: Boys: Sophomores — Jack Leopold, Thomas Wing; Freshmen — Tucker Barber, Thad Gunther, Brandon Lefresne, Thomas Marshall, Miles Pelletier, Nolan Rogers; Girls: Senior — Sarita Crandall; Freshmen — Grace Andrews, Julia Ramsey, Addie Schanz.

Season outlook: The boys have been second to Falmouth in the Class A competition the past two years. Doiron was a top-15 performer in both state races. In terms of individual success, Wade is the skier to watch. She is the reigning Class A freestyle champion and posted a top-five result at the Eastern High School Championships. The influx of first-year skiers on both sides should keep the Cougars in their customary place among the state’s elite for the foreseeable future.
