Coach: Kiersten Touponce (2nd year)
Last year: 5-9
Key returnees: Rose May, Sr.; Mackenzie Rice, Sr.; Ellen Ross, Sr.; Kathryn Wells, So.
Touponce - who is solely focusing on the girls team this fall, rather than serve as a co-coach as she did in 2012 - says the roster size has doubled from that of a year ago. She's also seeing proof that many of the returners put in the miles over the summer.
The key to the depth, though, is in the underclassmen. It remains to be seen if that depth will pay off in the various front packs during a race.
"A few of the girls who joined this year are able to keep up with our returning girls, so we should have some decent packs this season," Touponce said.
