The AuSable Valley varsity girls soccer team will look to stay at the top of the Section VII Class B standings with the help of key leadership returning to the roster in 2011.
“We have a strong group of leaders coming back this year,” head coach Keith Rainer said. “With the experience of seniors Amanda Hamilton, Megan Colby and Cammey Keyser, we should have a good foundation to build on.”
The Lady Patriots went 14-2-1 last season, and will look to continue to have success in the now merged Section VII soccer conference.
“With the new league realignment and a new schedule, I expect this to be a very competitive year,” Raines said. “We fully expect to be challenging for the league title and is looking forward to a great year.”
Raines said that the team will be looking to replace some of its scoring punch from 2010.
“Scoring goals will be a big emphasis this year,” he said. “We lost some quality goal scorers from last year and some of our younger kids are really going to have to step up and play well.”
Along with a trio of seniors, Raines said that he expects Bryce Allen and Haley Taylor and going to have break out years.
“Bryce will be counted on to lead our forwards and score some big goals for us and Haley will be expected to play multiple positions this year to help us play well,” Raines said, adding that the upper classmen will have to help bring the new players into the team concept.
“We lost 9 seniors off of last years team and many of the new players will have little or no Varsity experience,” he said. “I think how well we come together as a team will determine how we do.”
