The Mountaineers coach has just enough players to keep the field full, but the squad she does have moves fast and is plenty experienced.
With a half-dozen seniors on her team of 16, Millie Winslow said she's got a good team that she expects to perform well.
As her team is so small, Winslow said a major concern for her is injuries in the line of duty. A couple of player injuries last season held the team back, she said, and avoiding injury is key to a successful season.
Right now, the team is still working on physical conditioning from their off-season, said Winslow. The squad's also running drills to hone their ball control and short game passing.
There are a lot of younger players that she's beginning to work with, but the upperclassmen and underclassmen are working well together, she said.
Winslow received high praise from Long Lake/Indian Lake coach Jim Piraino, who said that she's an excellent coach who knows how to get the most from her squad.
Playing on the squad from the senior class are; Conner O'Brien, Shane Lafond, Chris O’Conner, Taylor Goodspeed, Morgan Winslow and Dylan Saville.
Juniors who’ll take to the field this season are; Dakota Thompson, Justin Viele, Calbert Galusha, Caio Zatz, Tyler Clickner, Adam McCall, Wesley LeBar and Austin Williams.
The lone sophmore on the team is Trevor Moulton.
