The girls have a young team with only two seniors. It may take a while to figure out what events the girls will run. Depth may be an issue in the bigger meets. The main goal is to win the sectionals as always. We will concentrate on the dual meets first. Team building is also a goal of the girls and they realize it builds success.” - girls coach Peter Frenette.
“Very good group of athletes. Very fun to be around, very fun to coach and they have a great work ethic. Excited to be outside on the track already and we look forward to a competitive and productive season.

Joe Cross is also new to the team this year and will be throwing. Jamal Tuthill may throw disc occasionally. Craig Leahy should have a strong year in the 400 hurdles. It is a tough event and he has the necessary mindset to be competitive. Freshmen Chris Schneider and Matt Adams, along with Will Lanthier will do the bulk of our distance running. Newcomer, senior Antonio Lascavio also looks promising. Jamal Tuthill will be a force in the 800. Have a very strong group of sprinters: Alex Beaudoin, Ethan Barge, Ben Monty, Mike Tuthill and Cole Hyde. Very strong runners for the 4X100, 100 and 200. Craig Leahy and Jamal Tuthill will also help in the 400. Very excited to see how eighth grader Josh Karp performs, looks promising.” - boys coach Nicholas Pepe.

Lady Red Storm softball
The Lady Red Storm will start the 2012 season with a roster that includes seniors Chelsea LaFountain, Christina Rabideau and Gabby Lewis: along with juniors Brittany Tschirhart, Jen McGuoirk, Jordynne McDougall, Megan Kilroy, Megan Moody, Nicole Viscardo, Shannon Stevens, Sierra Nye and Sydney Battistoni.
What the coach says:
“We will have something that they have not seen in many years, as the Red Storm will have four pitchers in juniors Nicole Viscardo, Brittany Tschirhart, Jordy McDougall and Megan Kilroy. We only lost two seniors last year and the entire infield is returning. The only two positions we needed to fill were left and right field. We hope to improve on last season’s 9-7 record. I think that this is attainable given the number of returning players and the new additions.” - Head coach Diana Schwartz.
