The Lady Red Storm will field a roster void of seniors, and will rely on leadership from juniors Elana Beideck, Kati Buck, Marisa McDonough, Rita Munn, Kaileigh Woodruff and Kylie Sapone. The team also includes Natalina Bevilaqua, Claire Bickford, Keily Branch, Maggie Darrah, Sienna Daviau, Cecily Decker, Sheila Decker, Tessa Dell, Macy Fischer, Aurelle Fogarty, Isabel Haro-Harris, Talia McDonough, Oliva Pridell, Catherine Quantance, Melissa Rath, Alivia Sapone, Katey Snyder, Kennedy Snyder, Laura Stanton, Bridget Sullivan and Allycia Woodruff.

What the coach says:

“The 2012 team is very young and full of athletic talent. This years squad was opened up to seventh and eighth graders and totals 27 students from Lake Placid and Saranac Lake school district. The true merged team will play games in both towns. The majority of athletes have no experience on the varsity level squad with six experienced juniors (Elena Beideck, Kati Buck, Marisa McDonough, Rita Munn, Kylie Sapone, and Kaileigh Woodruff) guiding the way through the season.

“The girls are focused demonstrated some of the best work-ethic ever seen by this team. With the guidance of former player Kristy Duguay and assistance of Beth Sullivan for conditioning training, we have the girls focused on working hard as a unit to build skills, team effort and learn schemes of play. The major goals include improving positioning and passing each game as well as having several players contribute to the success of the offense and the defense. Growth and perseverance will be key when the players begin their game schedule.” - head coach Amanda Zullo.

The schedule:

Wednesday, April 18 v. Salmon River
