Northern Adirondack School Sports Preview

Amongst wrestling, volleyball and girls varsity basketball, many players are returning this season, which will hopefully give them an edge against other teams in the division.

Wrestling coach Jared Peryea said the team is looking forward "to a strong season."

"With a strong nucleus of wrestlers returning, we look to be competitive in every tournament and dual meet," Peryea said.

Peryea feels returning champions Andrew Manor, who had 24 wins last year, and James Filion, who had 31 wins last year, will give the team good leadership.

In addition to these players, other returning wrestlers this year are Justin Kellett, Kyle Patnode, Kelby Gregory, Kaleb Sample, Robert Manor, Matt Carter, Jackson Sunderland, Ethan Bombard, Tyler Nephew, Kyle Demarais, Russell Noel, Scott Bentley, Mike Riley, and Jon Schoonmaker. New players this year are Scott Kellett, Jared Trombley, Max Marte, Matt Lashway, Garrett Gero, and Artie Charette.

Coach Shae Gilmore of the volleyball team is expecting a very smooth season.

"We have some new players who have stepped up and proved themselves," Gilmore said. "The returning players show leadership and experience. Together they are a well-rounded group of girls."

"I have confidence in that we will have a successful season," she added.

More than half of the girls on the team are returning players, including outside hitters Kara Perry and Chelcie Trombley, middle hitter Paige Magoon, defense specialist Amber Cayea, setters Emily Garrand and Sara Williams, and libero Bethany Drown.

New players this year are middle hitters Taylor Durkin and Nicole Durnin, and outside hitters Emilee Seguin, Alison LaMountain, and Jess King.

Despite not winning any games last season, new coach Jared Lambert of the girls varsity basketball team said the team is seeing a "new coach, new look, new attitude."

"Our goal this year is to be able to make the games as competitive as possible, while at the same time giving us the chance to win a few games this year," he said.
