Coach: Joel Smith (17th year)

Conference: KVAC Class: A North

Last year’s record: 3-10-3, lost in regional quarterfinals

Returning players: Seniors — Alden Thompson-Vought (M), Aidan Salisbury (M), Will Salisbury (M), Joe Crandall (D), Hunter Bolduc (G/F); Juniors — Dom Giampietro (D), Sam Smith (M), Chris Marshall (M), Mick Gurney (M); Sophomores — Eli Yeaton (F), Jack Murry (M).

Key losses: Tristan McFarlane, Andrew Hasko, Thomas Marshall

What to expect: The Cougars hope to build on how they finished last year, which included a playoff victory. After returning 14 varsity players, the core is collectively a year older and Smith said commited to building on last season’s momentum. The players are not satisfied, he said, but are hungry to improve. Playing a full, 80-minute game and staying healthy will be keys to success.
