Coach: David Lussier (2nd year)
Last year: 11-7
Key returnees: Faith Pudlo, Jr., OH; Emily Jordan, Jr., OH.
It's a youth movement in Dalton, as Lussier enters his second year at the helm without the benefit of any seniors on the roster. What he does have, though, are hitters. Pudlo and Jordan are captains on the outside, and returners Kayla Pravia and Taylor Powers are expected to anchor the squad with the help of sophomore middle hitter Sara LaFreniere.
Despite the lack of seniors, and the loss of two All-Eagle players (Bethany McBain, Ericka Unwin) to graduation, expectations are still high. As it is with many teams, Western Mass. tournament qualification is a goal for the Warriors.
"Wahconah should be very competitive in the Berkshire league," Lussier said.
The Warriors certainly know how tough the county can be, as it was Lenox who eliminated Wahconah from last year's Western Mass. tournament in four sets.
