that the district season has started, senior Julie Dorsey says, “We
are really anxious to go and play Clarke -- they are the team
to beat once again.” They
will have to do so without starting senior goalie Alex Pender,
who is out due to ankle surgery. “It puts a lot of pressure on our defense now
that she [Alex] is not there; hopefully she will be able to
play come playoffs” Julie explained.
The team is already looking
better than it did last season, with the addition of key starting
freshmen and sophomores including Mayassa Chehata and Abby Stroup.
Seniors Hayley Wood and Julie Dorsey are back controlling the
defense while senior Jesse Porzel and juniors Katie Turner and
Roxy Sweeney are leading the attack for the Mustangs.
