Chiefs gearing up for competitive season

Varsity Baseball

Despite losing two players from its pitching staff to graduation, coach Frank Trudeau is hoping to contend for the Division I title this season.

"We will work hard towards our goals," he said. "And look towards making team defense a strength for us again."

Players on the team this year are Brenden Begor, Matt Drollette, Kyle Rascoe, Mitch Wood, Ian Baughn, Dylan Everleth, James Laduke, Jason Favaro, Nick Rock, Matt Terry, Zachary Vaughan, Brady Burleigh, Jake Liberty, and Ben Weightman.

Varsity Softball

Softball coach Ralph Cross also hopes to contend for the Division 1 title this season.

"Five senior starters return from last year's team," he explained. "They will be joined by five sophomores in the starting lineup."

However, to reach their goal, Cross said the team's defense will need to show improvement as the season progresses.

This year's roster includes Katie McCasland, Alisha Ducatte, Alyssa King, Kaitlyn Wood, Jade Lakers, Olivia Puruza, Sara Jo Plummer, Megan Weightman, Courtney Pfezffer, Kelly Jock, Sara Lotemplio, and Samantha Tenney.

Varsity Tennis

With not having a boy's tennis team for the 2009 season, coach Katie Castine Terry said the group is starting from scratch.

"We will obviously have a disadvantage in matches because of experience and having to forfeit certain spots," Castine Terry explained. "This year is going to be about building confidence and experience. Luckily we have a young team and won't be graduating anyone."

Members of the boy's tennis team are Corey Bissonette, Shawn Bissonette, Mark LaPointe, Dalton Mitchell, and Joseph Tobin.

The girl's team is starting off the season with a core group of returning players.

"We fell one match short last year of winning CVACs when we were missing some girls," Castine Terry said. "They have a lot of experience and we are hoping to do good things this year."
