The girls varsity bowling at Northeastern Clinton Central School, coached by Rick Dumas, return from a 51-13 2009-2010 record.
This year's roster includes senior Aleigha McGoldrick, juniors Sara Adams, Katie Hawksby, and Janelle Menard, and sophomores Devin Gosselin and Katie Trombley, all returning players. The team will also see some newcombers with eighth grader Brianna Smith, and seventh graders Madison Dumas, Kayla Gladle, and Danielle Babbie.
"Our girls team's skills have improved tremendously since last season," said Dumas. "I am expecting Aleigha McGoldrick to be the team's leaders and all my juniors to continue their improvement to make us a bona-fide candidate to repeat as CVAC regular season champs."
Dumas also coaches the boys varsity team, which consists of many returning players including senior Cory Manor; juniors Aaron Mesec and Landon Gosselin; sophomores James Lapierre and Kyle Sebert; freshmen Joey Robert and Chris Kokes; and eighth grader Kevin Sterling.
The team also sees many newcombers this year including junior Bruce Bernard; sophomores Dylan Chaffee and Morgan Wyatt; freshman Mark Furman; eighth grader Eric Dupee; and seventh graders Matt Joliceour, Zack H., Trevor Chaffee, Justin Lapan, Steven Lavalley, Dylan Rabideau, and Josh Gero.
"I have a few good leaders from last year's squad that will help the newcomers succeed," said Dumas. "All the kids have a great attitude and enthusiasm for the sport."
