The Schroon Lake girls soccer team has high hopes entering a new era.
The Wildcats, who have played in the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference for decades, are now members of the new Section VII Conference. They will play in Division III with Crown Point, Indian Lake/Long Lake, Westport, Keene, Minerva/Newcomb and Wells.
“Our returning players along with a new group of sophomores should put us in good standing in our new division,” Coach Marylou Shaughnessy said. “We are looking forward to a good season.”
Schroon Lake returns 11 players from a year ago and have greater depth than in past seasons.
Katilyn Rose and Brianna DeZalia return at forward. Rose led the club in assists in 2010. They’re joined by rookies Abi Veverka, Lexi Subra and Megan Hall.
“This year we are looking to improve our offense and scoring abilities,” Shaughnessy said. “Our front line will consist of senior Kate Rose and junior Brianna DeZalia, each of whom possesses speed and agility. They have each scored in the past and this year we are looking for them to fire more balls into the net.”
Clare Whitney, Jessica Grey, Danielle Barror, Chloe McKenna and Kimmi Fariss are back at midfield. Newcomer Abigail Wisser joins them.
“Junior Clare Whitney and senior Jessica Grey will control midfield,” the coach said. “Their strength and endurance should prove helpful.”
The defense returns Kathaleen Gallagher, Miranda DeZalia and Gabe Harvey. Desiree Lanoue rounds out the defense.
“Senior Kathaleen Gallagher and juniors Gabe Harvey and Miranda DeZalia will also provide strength and consistency in the back of the field on defense,” Shaughnessy said.
Lindsay Reynolds, a starter a year ago, returns at goalie. Caitlyn Jarrell joins her in the nets.
“Junior Lindsay Reynolds will work hard in the net and build on her experience,” Shaughnessy said. “She will share duties with sophomore Caitlyn Jarrell.”
