The lady Mountaineers are ready for another year with almost the same roster as last season's.
No seniors were lost with the last round of graduations, said Candice Gereau, team coach. This means she has a squad that's used to working together and can play to one another's strengths.
Gereau said she wanted to play her cards close to her vest as the season approached, but she noted that defense is a strength, and the goalkeeper she's working with is phenomenal.
In practice, Gereau is working on getting the squad to be more fearless in taking shots on goal and getting the team to play more aggressively.
She didn't have a finalized roster by press time, but the students playing for the team, by class, were provided.
The Mountaineers will field seven seniors; Marlena Peter, Rebecca Bolan, Caelan Gould, Renna Yandon, Massena Green, Tara Galusha and Briana Hammond.
Only one junior is on the team, Shelby Hogan.
Six sophomores will play; Caitlyn Yandon, Michela Moses, Peyton Gould, Bridgett Mathers and Dakota Bennett.
Rounding out the team are freshmen Gabrielle McNally, Rachel Bush and Mackenzie Winslow.
