• Coach: Audrey Anderson (first season) • Last year’s record: 23-2 (13-1 in the Suburban One Continental Conference)
• Notable losses: Stevi Parker, Ashley Schoellkopf, Maggie Butcher
• Key returnees: Seniors – Natalia Pinkney, Carly Henry, Megan Shenk, Jeannie Jasinski, Caitlyn Sheva; Junior – Audrey Butcher; Sophomore – Marissa Sheva
• Others to watch: Junior – Ashley Butcher, Jackie Stevens
• Strengths: The Rams return a strong core of leaders on attacking third and the defensive third of the field. The experience they accumulated should help them navigate through a tough league and a tougher district.
• Question marks: The Rams will be breaking a new varsity goalie, which is the biggest question for the Rams. They will also have to reshape their midfield after losing all-state midfielder Stevi Parker, who is currently playing at South Carolina.
• Outlook: The Rams are hopeful they will be able defend their league championship. They still had goals of repeating as District One champs and revenging its state title game loss, but
they plan on taking one goal at a time.
• Coach: Jim Dehner (three seasons) • Last year’s record: 7-8-3 overall (5-7-2 in the Suburban One Continental Conference)
• Notable losses: Ashley Vaitis, Allie Smith, Megan Kelly
• Key returnees: Seniors – Katie Huber, Haley Mangiaruga, Katie Miller
• Others to watch: Senior – Gabby DiDomizio
• Strengths: The Maidens return this season extremely motivated to improve on their eight-win season from a season ago. Coach Dehner is very pleased with how hard his team has worked in the offseason to get better.
• Question marks: The Maidens only have a few seniors on the team and they will need some underclassmen to emerge and play big roles if they want to compete in the talented league they play in.
• Coach: Joe Duffy (second season) • Last year’s record: 3-15 overall (0-14 in the Suburban One Continental Conference) • Notable losses: Brooke Pinkos • Key returnees: Seniors – Grace Miorelli, Taylor Schwartz
• Others to watch: Senior – Mindi Radcliff; Sophomore – Missy Radcliff
• Strengths: The Indians were a strong defensive team last year and coach Duffy expects that unit take another step up. Duffy’s sophomore season as head coach means less learning about what he wants out of his team and more about having fun.
• Question marks: Scoring goals was a problem last year and if the Indians want to improve on their three win season they will need to finish shots more often.
• Outlook: Improvement in every aspect is the big thing for the Indians. If they get better in different aspects of the game, the hope is the win will follow.
• Coach: Ray Hess (six seasons) • Last year’s record: 13-4-1 • Notable losses: Laura Swintosky, Reba Sprugeon, Katelyn Kratz, Lynelle Leinbach, Alexa Derstine, Alicia Curry
• Key returnees: Seniors – Shea Neal, Katelyn McGoldrick, Alyssa Leister
• Others to watch: Senior – Brianna Derstine; Sophomores – Tabitha Miller, Olivia Seavy, Mattasyn Shisler
• Strengths: The Pioneers are not short of girls that can put the ball in the back of the net. They have strong possession skills and a number of girls that could end up leading the team in goals scored.
• Question marks: The Pioneers’ defense is in the midst of being reshaped the fall. After losing a few players, including their goalie Laura Swintosky to graduation there is some work to be done.
• Outlook: The Pioneers are the defending Class A champs and despite the large group of seniors that has moved on, the Pioneers still feel they have enough talent to defend its title.
