Captains Adrianne Ghidotti, Emma Friar and Lauren Drake alongside coach Kim Rocheleau, are expecting big things from the 2011 lacrosse team. Last year’s heartbreak came at the state tournament game against Sycamore. This year the girls only hope to take last years playoff outcome one step forward by winning a state championship.
“We’ll be young but very good,” said Adrianne. “We will have a good chance at winning states this year.”
Coach Matt Wion is back for his second year to lead the boys into playoffs.
The boys have not been able to win a state title for UA but they still have their hopes even after loosing star player Andrew Craine. The captains this year will be Mark Finneran and Micheal Shroer.
The defending state champions and the highly anticipated team will be the biggest target this year for opposing teams. Ted Wolford will be coaching the boys once again and Luke Treece, Kyle Vesper, Charlie Hauk and Cam Williams will be the captains the 2011 season.
“Very Exited for this year, I would be really surprised if we don’t win states,” said Treece. The boys lacrosse team has won 10 state titles in the past 18 years. “We should be better this year,” said Finneran. “We have higher hopes for playoffs this season.”
