Coach: Sherri Emery (first year)

Last year’s results: Eighth in WMC, 18th in Class B

Returning letter-winners: Juniors — Kierstin Stritch (javelin), Olivia Giles (distances), Michaela MacDonald (jumps, middle distances), Ashley Hutchinson (pole vault).

Key loss: Liz Audet.

Promising newcomers: Not available at press time.

Season outlook: Stritch was runner-up in javelin at the Class B state meet, and with another year of experience and training under her belt, she could rise to the top. Giles, MacDonald and Hutchinson are eager to get going after a strong indoor campaign. Emery believes the Patriots have a shot to crack the top five in the conference meet.
