Coach: Brian Lawton (21st year)
Last year: 10-8
Key returnees: Sienna Carpenter, Sr; Paige Hamilton, Sr.; Emma Burnick, Sr.; Sarah Koldys, Sr.; Sam DeCarlo, Sr.
Lawton was buoyed by last year's 10-8 finish. The Generals qualified for the Western Mass. Division II tournament, and won their opening-round match over Central, 3-2.
"That was the first time since 2009 we'd been in the postseason," said Lawton. "It was a good year."
Lawton's squad was senior-heavy last year, so he greeted an inexperienced squad this year. Co-captain Carpenter saw the most action last year of the returnees. But Lawton has been pleased with the team's work ethic so far.
"It's hard to tell right now how we'll be," he said. "The kids have been working pretty hard in practice, but when you lost almost all your starters, it's not easy to gauge."
