Coach: Heidi Deery (21st year)

Last year’s record: 19-2, lost in Western D final.

Returning players: Seniors — Seve Deery-Deraps G, Valerie Roy-Lessard F, Taylor Esty F/C; Juniors  — Michaela Shorey G, Maddison Egan G, Blayke Morin F/C; Sophomore – Celia Philbrick G/F; Freshman –  Natasha Haley G/F.

Key losses: Tori Letarte G

Promising newcomers: Freshman – Sydney Royce G/F; Eighth-graders — Brooke Egan G, Vanessa Bisson F, Mary-Page Swiney.

Overview: The Lakers lost in the regional final on the final shot of the game but return almost all of that team. Morin and Esty should dominant in the paint against EWC foes. Deery-Deraps, Shorey and Egan lead a group of guards that have experience and can play pressure defense. Rangeley will miss Letarte’s talents and leadership, but the Lakers are a veteran team that should be a contender in Western D again.
