Caldwell said this is the largest group of four-year seniors the program has had. Other new additions include assistant coaches Seth Levier and Melissa Kilborn, who Caldwell called technique specialists. The Bucks, who don’t have a home track, will have opportunities to train at Poland after utilizing Leavitt’s facilities in the past.

Season outlook: A growing middle school program is paying dividends for the Cougars, who this season have a roster that coach Dave Buck is excited about. “We’re getting kids who love the sport coming up,” Buck said. “We’ve also had lots of success with team members recruiting their friends.” Dirigo’s depth is growing and the Cougars will be able to compete in more events because of it. “We hope to see the team move higher in the conference and state Class C standings over the next few years,” Buck said.

Coaches: Diana Kruszewski (second year), Katie Byrne (first year)

Season outlook: New co-head coach Katie Byrne notes that there’s lot of changes for the Edward Little track program in 2024. Out is longtime coach Rebecca Hefty, who retired after more than 20 years, and who Byrne said will be “hugely missed.” In is a new track and stadium for the Red Eddies, which Byrne said is exciting for the program. Also new is more than 45 athletes, with a large group of ninth- and 10th-graders. “Time for our seniors to really mentor and lead the younger athletes in the Eddie way,” Byrne said.

Coaches: Boys: Todd Mercer (22nd year); Girls: Mike Griffin (10th year); assistants: Adam Zukowski, Jeff Amos, James LePage
Class: B; Conference: WMC Division 1
Last year’s results: Boys: Fifth at WMC Division 1 championship, 16th at Class B states; Girls: Fourth at WMC Division 1 championship, 17th at states.

Girls: Seniors — Ella Brown (jumps), Sara Patriquin (jumps/hurdles); Juniors — Annie Reynolds (throws), Elara Kluck (throws); Sophomore — Lyedin Chase-Lessard (sprints/jumps).
Season outlook: The boys team has scorers in all three areas of the track and field — running, jumps and throws. That could help them contend, as could spreading out the athletes among the various events to maximize points in the competition. The girls are led by a trio (Brown, Patriquin and Reynolds) that have multiple trips to states with medals earned. The Patriots will be especially strong in the jumps and throws.

Coaches: Jamie Juntura (13th year), Will Parkin (sixth year), Jen Perron (third year), Isaiah Davis (seventh year), Sean Daigle (second year), Nicole Fletcher (first year)

Season outlook: The Hornets have one of the largest rosters the program has ever had, according to head coach Jamie Juntura. They also have high expectations, with the boys looking to repeat as conference and state champions and the girls out for redemption at the conference championship meet. Juntura said many of the girls’ top point scorers are coming off successful indoor seasons and want to carry that over to the spring. The boys lose some scoring with the graduation of Dayton Calder and Logan Ouellette, but there are other returning athletes ready to fill those gaps. “Even though the season has had a bumpy start due to weather, the Leavitt Hornets are looking to be a prominent presence at the end of season meets,” Juntura said.

Coach: Craig John (second year); assistants: Carolyn Court, Ken Ball, Mohamed Awil, Jane Jawar.
Class: A; Conference: KVAC Large Schools
Last year’s results: Boys: Third at KVAC Large Schools championships, 16th at Class A states; Girls: Fifth at KVAC Large Schools championships, sixth at states.

Girls: Sophomore — Lubesso Sauca (jumps); Freshmen — Tracy Banguninga (jumps), Perola Meli (sprints/jumps), Ariyanna Murchison (jumps/sprints), Bailey Jordan (throws), Joana Almeida (jumps/sprints).
Season outlook: The Blue Devils boast a roster of nearly 130 athletes, including what coach Craig John called “a very dedicated core group” along with a “good amount” of new athletes starting their first season with the program. John expects to see some school records broken in events such as the throws, jumps, sprints and distance races. “I don’t like to say we are shooting for this or that, but let’s just say that we are not without ambitions for this team,” John said.


Coach: Nicole Sautter (third year); assistants: Hank Fuller (38th year), Doug Sautter (28th year), Bree Merrill (second year)
Class: C; Conference: MVC

Season outlook: The boys expect to continue to be competitive at the conference and state levels, with a large group of underclassmen to buoy standout upperclassmen Owen Booker, Adam Hayes, Emmett Mooney and Caleb Hayes. The girls team is young, but welcomes in a lot of freshmen to a group that would like to repeat as conference champions.

Coaches: Dickson McCannell (first year) and Molly Menice (first year)
Class: C; Conference: MVC
Last year’s results: Boys: Seventh at MVC championships, 11th at Class C states; Girls: Fourth at MVCs, 20th at states.

Season outlook: The biggest change for the Mustangs is at head coach, with longtime head coach Tom Menendez retiring and in his place is the tandem of Dickson McCannell and Molly Menice. They inherit a young roster, and McCannell said the focus will be on rebuilding and learning. “The team has shown a great deal of enthusiasm already, and the coaches have been seeing a lot of potential that is sure to prove itself over time,” McCannell said.

Coaches: Boys: JT Taylor (13th year); Girls: Adam Curato (13th year)
Class: C; Conference: MVC
Last year’s results: Boys: Fifth at MVC championships, 16th at Class C states; Girls: Third at MVCs, 15th at states.
Returning athletes: Boys: Seniors — Maing Tang (throws), Jyrrmal Yates (jumps/javelin), Aidan Granados (distance), Braedyn Goyette (jumps/javelin); Juniors — Kaden Mills (jumps/sprints), Drake Knox (jumps/hurdles), Michael Chase (jumps/hurdles), Adam Gammon (sprints/jumps); Sophomores — Dexter Rice (middle distance/hurdles), Whyatt Perham (racewalk/distance), Diquari Thompson (sprints/jumps). Girls: Seniors — Ciara Abbot (sprints), Brooke Chase (jumps/hurdles), Kara Jasud (throws/ sprints/jumps/hurdles), Emma Koch (throws/sprints/jumps); Juniors — Maddy Dow (throws/sprints), Felicity-Love Hoyt (jumps/middle distance), Paisley Clukey (sprints/jumps); Sophomores — Chloe Brown (sprints/jumps), Haley Glover (sprints/jumps).

Girls: Senior — Jaden Boulanger (sprints/jumps); Sophomore — Nataley Yates (sprints/jumps); Freshmen — Emma Gallante (middle distance), Riley Windover) (racewalk/throws/distance).
Season outlook: The boys team features upperclassmen looking to make leaps at the conference and state levels, as well the addition of some talented freshmen. Coach JT Taylor said the focus early in the season is building team camaraderie and creating a functional athletic base to keep athletes healthy throughout the season. The Falcons should be strong in the jumps and sprints, according to Taylor. Curato, the girls coach, looks for his team to be deep in most events, but the loss of Buotte could be felt in the longer distances. The Falcons’ relay teams should continue to be competitive. Strong leadership will be key, with normal practice plans thrown off by fall flooding and recent snowstorms.

Coach: Kelley Cullenberg (32nd year)
Class: A; Conference: KVAC Large Schools
Last year’s results: Boys: Fourth at KVAC Medium Schools championships, 26th at Class A states; Girls: Fourth at KVAC Medium Schools championship, 24th at states.
Returning athletes: Boys: Seniors — Hunter Beach (throws), Andrew Robinson (middle distance/racewalk); Juniors — Craig Bessey (throws), Colin Drake (throws), Wyatt Flagg (sprints/hurdles/throws), Henri McCourt (distance/jumps); Sophomores — Ben Hatch (distance), Kesley Manenge (sprints/jumps), Colin Woehre-Logan (throws/jumps). Girls: Senior — Abbey Goodspeed (throws); Juniors — Addie Colello (distance), Cassidy Hart (throws/hurdles), Nora McCourt (distance), Natalee Orr (sprints/jumps/middle distance), Brielle Tinker (distance/jumps), Emeline Young (racewalk/sprints); Sophomores — Kaitlyn Rosie (throws/sprints), Eliza Stinson (sprints/hurdles/jumps), Elizabeth Strickland (distance).

Girls: Senior — Tameeka Blauvelt (sprints/throws/jumps); Juniors: Dezariah Rose (throws), Heavenly Vernesoni (sprints/hurdles/racewalk), Astrid Jones (distance); Sophomores — Kara Brougham (sprints/throws/racewalk), Anndee Gardner (sprints/jumps/throws), Alyisa Kinsey (sprints/throws), Acacia Omari (middle distance/racewalk), Evelyn Stadelman (sprints); Freshmen — Elsa Feegel (middle distance/racewalk/throws), Isobel Hanson (throws/sprints), Lily Jackson (racewalk/distance/throws), Zatarea Rose (throws/sprints).
Season outlook: The Cougars have a decent amount of returning upperclassmen, as well as quite a few newcomers who are already showing progress and potential, according to Cullenberg. Still, as one of the smaller Class A schools, Mt. Blue has a tall task in stacking up against the larger schools. “But this will allow us to rise to the challenge of being the best teams that we can be,” Cullenberg said.

Coaches: Boys: Nate Danforth (21st year); Girls: Luc Roy (18th year)
Class: A; Conference: KVAC Large Schools
Last year’s results: Boys: Sixth at KVAC Large Schools championships, 17th at Class A states; Girls: Eighth at KVAC Large Schools championships, 13th at states.

Girls: Seniors — Meredith Harthorn, Willow Adler; Juniors — Lucy Weed, Kalli Johnson, Natalie Gray, Ella Pelletier; Sophomores — Cedar Worster, Antonella Gilbert.
Key losses: Boys: Lincoln Merrill, Holden Shaw, Kopen Grenier; Girls: Ashley Richardson, Kylie Danforth, Maddie Stack, Kenzie Grenier, Sierra Carson, Molly Corbett, Lilly Brassley.
Promising newcomers: Boys: Junior — Frank Lewins (jumps); Freshmen — Brooks Merrill (throws), Gabe Paradis (throws), Asher Roy (distance/jumps). Girls: Freshmen — Chloe Bowen, Maddy Berry, Maddy MacAlister, Avery Marston.
Season outlook: Head coach Nate Danforth said the boys team is on the younger side and has lower numbers than in years past, so the Vikings will be counting on their returning placers from the championship meets to set the tone for the rest of the group. Girls head coach Luc Roy said that girls are also rebuilding, but many of the incoming athletes did well at the middle school level and are looking to prove themselves in high school. The returners are working hard to finish what they started in previous seasons.

Coach: Joshua Kennison (third year); assistants: Chuck Cantone (first year), Phil Brienza (ninth year), Dan Roy (first year)

Season outlook: Head coach Joshua Kennison said the outlook for the Knights this season is bright. They have a roster with numbers north of 60, including more than 20 freshmen. “Building toward the future is our goal, as well as being competitive within the conference,” Kennison said.


Coaches: Nicole Curtis (second year), Caryn Waceken (second year), Mike Morrell (first year)

Season outlook: The Phoenix return a large number of athletes to the team and bring in a handful of new ones. Both the boys and girls teams lost key athletes, but coach Nicole Curtis said the program is lucky to have the incoming participants to help fill the gaps.

Coach: Cameron Meserve (first year); assistants: Darine Gnidehoue (second year), Emily Colson (first year).
Class: C; Conference: WMC Division 2
Last year’s results: Boys: Sixth in Division 2 at WMC championships; Girls: Seventh in Division 2 at WMCs.
Returning athletes: Boys: Juniors — Jack Gilpatric (jumps/sprints), Phoenix Jalbert (distance/jumps), Isaac Yombe (jumps), Logan Martin (pole vault), Ethan Egdall (throws/sprints/jumps), Aiden Walling (sprints), Gavin Godfrey (jumps/sprints).

Season outlook: The Saints have grown their roster this season, and Meserve, in his first year at the helm, is emphasizing versatility. “We have many individuals willing to try new events,” Meserve said. Jack Gilpatric, for instance, can run anything from the 100-meter dash to the 2-mile run. “Overall we got a deep roster with a lot of depth, and gumption,” Meserve said.

Coaches: David Leclerc (22nd year), Morgan Richmond (first year)
Class: C; Conference: MVC
Last year’s results: Boys: Tenth at MVC championships.
Returning athletes: Boys: Junior — Kayan DeGruttola (throws); Sophomores — Gage Berry (throws), Matt Doucette (throws), Seth Dupuis (distance), Joseph Lauria (sprints/jumps), Cyrus Mills (sprints/jumps), Evan Parsons (sprints). Girls: Juniors — Ella Akers (sprints), Katie Devany (throws), Adaline Koskela (distance), Jocelyn Nivus (throws), Alexis Seames (sprints), Lily Souther (throws), Gabby Thompson (sprints/throws).
Key losses: Ronald Brassard (sprints), Bella Brassard (sprints), Autumn Thompson (throws).
Promising newcomers: Boys: Sophomores — Reggie Billings (throws), Hunter Koskela (throws), Jonathan Marshall (throws), Tommy LaPointe (sprints), Adam Stephenson (distance), Jake Zolad (sprints); Freshmen — Travis Decareau (sprints), Davon DeGruttola (throws), Michael Early (distance), Jaycob George (distance), Reese Pierce (distance). Girls: Junior — Audrey Saito (throws); Freshman — Sophia Pervival (throws).
Season outlook: The boys team has grown considerably in size, with a large sophomore class that features 2023 Class C state meet qualifiers Cyrus Mills and Joseph Lauria. Yet with the group’s potential, coach David Leclerc cautions that it is a young group with many athletes still trying to find their niche. The girls team is relatively unchanged from a year ago, and many of the team members are juniors who provide leadership to go along with their individual skills.

Coaches: Ed Van Tassel (19th year); assistants: Tiff Shaw (fifth year), Zack Phinney (first year)
Class: C; Conference: MVC
Last year’s results: Boys: MVC runners-up, 10th at Class C states; Girls: Sixth at MVCs, 14th at states.
Returning athletes: Boys: Seniors — Chris Pottle (distance), Teddy Wagner (middle distance), Eben Michaud (distance), David Gustin (distance), Gabe Corey (middle distance), Sam Brito (middle distance), Harold Vance (distance); Juniors — Colton Baird (jumps), Aidan Grant (throws), Hunter Reynolds (throws), Ryan Wells (hurdles), Joseph Szakas (distance), Barrett Perkins (throws); Sophomores — Joshua Ellis (sprints), Jacob Feith (throws), Luke Hopkins (distance), Ben Porter (sprints), Dylan Weymouth (throws).

Promising newcomers: Junior — Cody Cobb (sprints); Sophomores — Ethan Flagg (throws), Taegin Gogan (throws), Brock Dewar (throws); Freshmen — Sam St. Germain (distance), Lucas Rice (sprints), Tyler Poulin (distance), Urijah Oliver (distance), Derrick Gould (distance), Reece Dubreuil (sprints), Sam Drown (throws), Alfie Cognata (middle distance). Girls: Seniors — Haley Williams (distance), Kaitlyn Brito (distance); Sophomore — Cate Gustin (sprints); Freshmen — Keura Pearson (middle distance), Grace Grant (throws), Sophie Beckwith (middle distance).
Season outlook: The boys bring back a lot of last year’s conference runner-up team, but the graduation of 800-meter state champ James Cognata is big loss. Van Tassel sees a roster that has a good mix of experience and youth that will look to keep developing and peak for the championship meets. The girls team is a young squad, according to Van Tassel, but the addition of senior Haley Williams, who was a New England cross country championship qualifier in the fall, is a boon for the Ramblers.
