Noah Silver, Assistant Sports Editor

Coach: Amy Lombardo (11th year)

Last Year’s Record: 7-10

Key Returners: Sydney Ben-yishay (Sr.), Ellie Schaumberger (Sr.), Erin Kearney (Sr.), Caeleigh Reger (Sr.), Mallory Downs (Sr.)

Key Losses: Paige Skene, Sam Conjour

Key Newcomers: Amanda Polyniak (Fr.) and Sarah Mastowski (Fr.)

Strength of team:

Last year, there were several juniors, sophomores, and freshmen on the varsity team, meaning this year’s team has experience.

“[We] have a lot of returning varsity experience,” Lombardo said.

Weakness of team:

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the team has not had much time to prepare for the upcoming season.

“We’re in the middle of a pandemic and there isn’t a lot of time to prepare for the season,” Lombardo said. “As of right now we’ve only had three practices and we start the season in a week and a half. We are all just trying to figure everything out in a short amount of time.”


Lombardo hopes the team can compete for the league championship this year and improve throughout the season.
