Coach: Betsy Gilbert (fourth year)

Conference: MVC  Class: C

Last year: 12-6, lost in Class C state final

Returning players: Seniors — Abby Asselin (F), Lexi Fuller (D), Erika Hannigan (M/F), Mercedes Pease (M), Hayden Spencer (F), Lindsay Wright (D); Juniors — Maegan Sheehy (F/D), Kiera Young (M); Sophomores — Zoe Buteau (M), Alexis Faucher (F).

Promising newcomers: Sophomores — Mackenzie Thibeault (G), Hayley Salger (G), Kaylei Robichaud (M); Freshmen — Bryanna Foster (F), Desirae Dumais (F).

Season outlook: The Raiders graduated a good group of players, but also return some key players, and should be able to sniff that 10-win plateau in the regular season if not eclipse it. The biggest challenge will be replacing emotional leader Fuller in the cage, who was as solid mentally as she was physically as a keeper. Two sophomores will vie for time there. If Oak Hill can ramp up the transition game for which it has been known the past few seasons, another deep run is certainly possible.
