Biddeford

Coach: Ray Magnant

Last year’s record: 13-3

Key returners: Erin Martin, Kirsten Lebreux, Jocelyn Moody, Brittany Roy, Brook Davis, Charlotte White

Key newcomers: Grace Martin

Coach’s outlook: The Tigers strength will be strong pitching-catching tandem in Kirsten Lebreux and Brook Davis. The key for us this season is keep improving at the plate with our talented lineup and aggressive base running.

Kennebunk

Coach: Kortney Nedeau

Last year’s record: 3-9

Key returning players: Britney Gregoire, Lindsey Gregoire, Kylie Defeo, and Allie Gregoire, Sydney Waitt

Key newcomers: Christine Jarowicz

Coach’s outlook: We have a young group with our standout senior starter Gabby Harrison down for the season due to elbow surgery that occurred during summer softball. She will attend Merrimack in the fall. We really need to be flexible, play smart and strategic softball and make the very best of every opportunity. Senior Malori Cole will fill in grounding the infield, and the young sophomore and freshman defense will be the ultimate test. Sydney Waitt and Kylie Defeo will be rotating through pitching and, though they aren’t overpowering, they are precise. If we can maintain precision on the mound and limit the number of walks, we are in a good position to play defensive softball and use the bats to pull together some runs. Patience, patience, patience – that will truly be our number one tool.

Massabesic

Coach: Kevin Tutt

Last years record: 6-10

Key Returning players: Sarah Guimond, Sarah Howe, Kyra Cartwright

Key Newcomers: Grace Tutt, Lacey Bean

Coaches Outlook: Still a very young group, only having two seniors on the roster. Looking to continue momentum the program experienced throughout the playoffs last year. Pitching depth should be a positive note, while hopefully we will still be known as a gritty team that won’t overpower you, but will try to outwork you. Team chemistry is a must for this group of young ladies.
