Coach: Dan Wood (3rd season)
Last year: 10-5-1, loss in Division IV semifinals
The team: Three main starters from last year's semifinal team are gone -- Jennah Lacoste, Mazie Holton and leading scorer Rayleen Sherman. Sherman scored 19 of the team's 44 goals. Junior Molly Elwell, who has scored nearly 40 goals in her three-year career, tallied 14 times in 2012, including three times in the postseason. Stopper Becca Solari, sweeper Shelby Baker and goalie Hannah Andrew return as well from a year ago. Junior Anna Fischer and freshman Riley Lane could be surprises as the season goes along. Junior Brooke Hawley returns after a hiatus.
Opener: Sept. 3 at Twin Valley, 6 p.m.
Adam Samrov, Bennington Banner
