Head coach: Bruce Bourgeois

The AuSable Valley Lady Patriots soccer team could not solve the riddle that was Plattsburgh High last season.

This year, the team will look to the experience of 10 returning players, along with first-year coach Bruce Bourgeois, to try for another shot in Division I.

“We will play all B schools in the regular season,” Bourgeois said. “This should get us ready for the playoffs in the smaller class, as we have moved down to Class C for this season.”

Bourgeois said that the roster of 17 players features 10 with experience on varsity.

“We expect to be very competitive as long as we stay healthy,” he said. “Our strengths are speed and our defensive play. Our weaknesses are numbers and the power of our offensive attack.”

Bourgeois said there are a few players who will be asked to step up as leaders for the team this season.

“We will rely heavily on Logan Snow, Sumra Sikandar and Sierra Snow on defense; Hailey Taylor and Rachel Knapp at midfield and Deanna Dashnaw and Meagan Strong as strikers,” he said.

Boys soccer

The AuSable Valley varsity boys soccer team will look to use the experience in gained in 2011 to help but goals into the net this season.
