The team: Arlington has a very small lineup with only six runners, all female. But Hoose said that's a blessing in disguise.
"It's enjoyable to have a small team because it's easier to focus on them individually," Hoose said.
Amber Welch and Bhumika Patel are the seniors, while Celia Smith is the lone junior. Freshman Jena Staab, who ran for the middle school last year, could make some noise. The schedule is tough, with events at Mount Anthony, Mill River and Rutland.
Opener: Sept. 3 at Rutland, 4:30 p.m.
