Despite a roster of rookies, Warrior soccer team eyeing success

"Carson and Pete work together well," he said.

Tending the goal will be Ryan Moll, a junior, whose 6'4" height and athleticism should allow him to retrieve opponents shots, White said.

"Ryan can boot the ball and he's pretty aggressive," he said. "We'll be working on developing his hands."

The defense will include Gavin Garry, who moved from the inside to a role as central defender. White said he's looking for Garry to mentor the younger players.

Four of the younger players are apparently going to be starters, and they're pushing the older players to do their best, White said.

"There are no bad feelings about the younger guys starting," he said. "The chemistry on the team is big this year, and everyone's getting along."

The group really enjoys the sport, works hard in practice, and 18 Warrior players attended the week-long soccer camp at St. Lawrence University in July. Brian Stoya, a Lake George sophomore, was awarded most improved player - exemplifying the Warriors' work ethic.

"This is perhaps the most focused group I've ever had," White said. "I'm excited about the team - it's a fun group to be around."
