The team is large this year, with 27 players on the roster. “I like to take a lot of guys so they are having to compete on every practice for the starting spot and playing time, ” said head coach Shane Carney. According to captain Will Simmonds, the team has 9 returning starters. “We have a lot of potential to go far this year,”  he said. The team only lost two starters from last season, and the expectations from both players and the coach is high.

This is my 13th year and every year that I come I am very pleasantly surprised by the level of play of the athletes, and this year is no different.  I think we are going to be very competitive, and as always i expect to win it all.”  Senior Lauren Petite, one of the captains, said, “With the amount of the new players it looks like we are going to have a pretty solid season and we are excited to get started.”
