Baseball, softball, tennis teams have positive outlook

Varsity Baseball

With a team of little varsity experience, coach Jerry Davison is looking to certain players to take on the pitching responsibility.

"Dustin Hemmingway, Brett Bosley, Jamie Davison will be asked to carry the load," he said. "Dalton Castine will see some action on the mound."

The team has six returning starters from last season, yet Davison is looking to captain Jamie Davison to "hold down shortstop and bring along a very young infield."

Other players on the team this year are Rob Armstrong, Brandon Spooner, Dan Mangan, Randy Grimshaw, Casey Manor, Logan Miller, Brandon LaMere, Justin DiOrio, Dustin Hemmingway, and Matt Letourneau.

Varsity Softball

With the majority of the team returning players, coach Gretchen Morris said she has "high hopes" for the group.

"Five of the young ladies have been with me now for three years," she said. "They understand the system and are excellent athletes."

The main goal for the season, explained Morris, is to have the team come together as one.

"If we can do that, we will be able to battle any team in the league," she said.

The team consists of Mary Elizabeth Franke, Bianca Grimshaw, Mara Faivaie, Alyssa Rabideau, Alli Ebersol, Courtney Marks, Felicia Lapan, Megan Boyer, Kati-Lyn Tierney, Ayisha Loya, Casey Lawrey, Megan Boumil, and Taylor Kelsey.

Varsity Tennis

Assistant coach Anna Langlois has found the boy's tennis team to have a lot of depth this season, despite losing many top players.

"I'm really looking forward to a good season," she said. "We have a nice group of kids that came out and so far we've seen a lot of improvement very quickly."

The boy's team consists of Devan Collins, Devan Poissant, Alex Guay, Adam Jennet, Bobby Marks, Dylan Carey, James Gillis, Richie Collins, Sean Harrigan, McKenna Hunter, and Ryan Marks.

For the girl's team, Langlois believes the group will be "very hopeful."

"We lost a lot of seniors," she said. "A lot of our whole single starter lineup. So we have a lot of movement. But again, all the kids this year have great attitudes and we've seen a lot of progress."

The girl's team consists of Alanna Cruz, Kristin Langr, Deanna Lutz, Tori Duprey, Cindy Swiatek, Lacie Hogle, Erica Sorrell, Paige Southwick, Allie Cartier, and Lily O'Hara.
