Biddeford

Coach: Caitlin Albert

Last year’s record: 7-5

Key returners: Senior captains Camryn McKeown, Taylor Turgeon, Mia LaFlamme, Missy Huot, junior Rebekah Guay and sophomores Peyton McKeown and Serena Speight

Key newcomers: Paige Laverriere, Hailey Allen and Grace Boisvert

Coach’s outlook: It is only our seventh year as a varsity team this season, but the program is developing tenfold due to our huge youth program. The last two seasons, we have ended 7-5 with playoff berths. This upcoming season, the goal is to have the best record yet. The league is very competitive, and the program is under 10 years old, but the 2016 Tigers have worked hard and are prepared and ready to hold their own and make a statement this year.

Kennebunk

Coach: Annie Barker

Last year’s record. 14- 2; lost in overtime in state finals

Key returning players: Jenny Bush, Kyra Schwartzman, Carly Sandler, Olivia Sandford, Hallie Schwartzman, Gabrielle Fogg, Cara Small, Molly Parent, Marran Oakman and Isabella Kudas

Key newcomers: Elizabeth Cain and Brianna Beaudette

Coach’s outlook: I think we have added some great additions to our roster. I feel the team will be strong with lots of experience on the field and a confident goal keeper in the cage.

Massabesic

Coach: Brooks Bowen

Last year’s record: 11-3

Key returners: Maquila Dimastrantonio, Emma Desrochers, Madison Russell, Keilly Lynch, Madison Drain, Josie Ring and Delia Sylvain

Key newcomers: Morgan Pike, Logan Champlin, Kenzy Ouellette and Skylar Renaud

Coach’s outlook: This group is athletic and focused on improving. Our skills are coming along, and our leaders are emerging. We have an extremely challenging preseason to get us ready to go. We still have some details and communication to work on before we open, but we are happy with the first few weeks of progress.

Sanford

Coach: Diana Walker

Last year’s record: 6-7

Key returners: Maddie Leigh, Monica Trausch, Liz Helmreich, Kyla Bragg, Shannon Lebel, Hannah Rossignol and Eva Belanger

Key newcomers: Valentina Drown

Coach’s outlook: We have some experience, but our depth is lacking. We have some great kids, but our talent pool needs lots of improvement. Our goalie situation is also a big question … our defense will have to really step it up, and our offense will have to score lots.

Thornton Academy

Coach: Craig Agreste

Last year’s record: 10-4

Key returning players: Faith Sinclair, Jules Grondin, Tatum LeClair and Rachel Richard

Key newcomers: Meghan Stephenson

Coach’s outlook: Looking to build on the success from the past few years. We have plenty of returning players from last year. The team is excited for the season.

Wells

Coach: Jackie Proulx

Last year’s record: 1-11

Key returners: Izzy Smith, Leah Tufts, Alyssa Loukola, Megan Schneider, Kylie Belanger, Amber Booth and Aimely Michaud-Nolan

Newcomers: Lanney O’ Brien, Brianna Michaud-Nolan and Lauren Bartlett

Coach’s outlook: This year, I really only want us focusing on the elements that we can control, things that are in our hands – our skills and our attitude. Playing better in the second half of every game instead of the first is a major goal for us. We are a younger team, but have a lot of athletic younger players … looks promising for a stronger year than last year.
