2009 record: 7-8

Top returners: Christine O’Neill, Sr., (defense); Monica Ashton, Sr., (midfield); Rachel Keeley, Jr., (midfield)

Key newcomers: Morgan Tildon, Fr., (midfield); Lucy Daghir, So., (midfield); Emily Whittie, Jr., (midfield); Julie Shetterly, Jr., (midfield)

Outlook: Not available.

Bel Air

Head coach: Shannon Esposito (first year)

2009 record: 8-12

Top returners: Kaci Starkloff, Sr., (midfield); Megan Fennell, Sr., (defense); Hayley Krause, So., (attack)

Key newcomers: Jordan Hammond, Jr., (midfield); Brooke Lorber, Fr., (midfield)

C. Milton Wright

Head coach: Brent Ritz (fifth year)

2009 record: 9-5-1

Top returners: Tayler Kuzma, Sr., (midfield); Elizabeth Johnson, Sr., (midfield); Katie Provonche, Sr., (midfield); Lauren McCadden, Sr., (defense); Megan Will, Jr., (attack); Alyssa Blevins, Jr., (midfield/defense); Katie Gallagher, So., (attack)

Key newcomers: Morgan Hunter, Jr., (attack); Rebecca Muscella, Jr., (GK)

Outlook: “We return eight of 12 starters. Rebecca Muscella has some large shoes to fill in replacing Cara Canington (Florida) in the goal, but we believe she has the ability to step up to the challenge,” coach Ritz said. “Our seniors, Tayler Kuzma, Elizabeth Johnson, Lauren McCadden, and Katie Provonche, will be paramount to our success this season, as they have been major contributors to our team over their careers. Our midfield will be the key to our success as it includes three four-year starters. We will sorely miss our defensive MVP from last season, Rachel Neff, as she broke her leg in tryouts but will look for others to step up quickly and fill the void.”


No preview information was supplied as of presstime.


Head coach: Michael McTeague (fifth year)

2009 record: 17-2

Top returners: McKenzie Hannahs, Sr., (defense); Leah Perrotta, Sr., (defense); Sammi Mosketti, Sr., (defense); Shannon Propst, Sr., (midfield); Jen Ward, Sr., (attack); Abby Willson, Jr., (attack); Jenna Mosketti, So., (midfield)

Key newcomers: Paulina Christ, So., (midfield); Heather Summers, So., (midfield); Tori Wagner, So., (attack)

Outlook: “We have many returning seniors which should give us the needed experience for a successful season,” coach McTeague said. “We will need our young sophomores to step into contributing roles to balance out the field. With the loss of our starting goalie and our two leading scorers: Monica Fischer (Hopkins) and Roxy Raab (Salisbury), it will be important that we become a more rounded team with everyone stepping up into more important roles on offense.”

Harford Tech

Head coach: Amanda Henninger (first year)

2009 record: 6-6

Top returners: Morgan Cillo, Sr., (midfield); Bess Carlson, Sr., (defense); Sarah Chetlat, Sr., (attack); Marisa Braungart, So., (midfield); Morgan Grannas, So., (attack)

Key newcomers: Anna Spiropoulos, Jr., (defense); Katie Smith, So., (midfield); Lauren Spalt, Fr., (midfield)

Havre de Grace

2009 record: 11-3

Top returners: “I am opting not to recognize any players individually, but choose to acknowledge the team as a whole,” coach Scholl said.

Key newcomers: Not provided

Outlook: “I am looking forward to this spring season. We graduated several key defenders last season and have worked hard to fill their positions,” Scholl said. “Also our returning players are stepping up as leaders for the new underclassmen on the team. I hope that we can continue with our success and to build the women’s lacrosse program in Havre de Grace, especially now that we will field a Junior Varsity team for the first time in several years.”

John Carroll

Head coach: Krystin Porcella (fourth year)

2009 record: 13-5

Outlook: “The Patriots are looking to return to the top of the IAAM A Conference with leadership from a senior class that has won the conference title two times already,” coach Porcella said. “A young team that includes seven freshman, John Carroll will face a tough conference schedule including No. 1 McDonogh and No. 2 NDP, as well as Fallston, North Harford and Patterson Mill.”


Head coach: Valerie Bish (second year)

2009 record: 1-11

Top returners: Brittany Gonzalez, Sr., (midfield); Emma McDougall, So., (center); Ratoshia Scott, Jr., (GK); Briana Goode, Sr., (defense)

Key newcomers: Christina Miller, Fr., (attack)

Outlook: “Our goal as a team this year is to be competitive in every game that we play. We only graduated one senior last year so I am looking forward to seeing our team improve throughout the season,” coach Bish said.

Speed in the midfield is our strength with strong stick skills,” coach Buecker said. “We will be working hard to build a solid defensive foundation. Offensively we will be focusing on finding connections and with a variety of players that can contribute to goal scoring. This is a very coachable group that are excited to learn and be disciplined on the field. I’m looking forward to great improvements throughout the season. Talented group of five freshman should make an impact on the field as well.”
