Head coach: Bill Wardle (seventh year)

2009 record: 13-4

Top returners: Rickie Kalama, Sr. (F/M); Chris King, Sr. (M/F); Joel Carter, Sr. (M); Russell Lee, Sr. (D)

Key newcomers: Andy Montgomery, So. (M/F); David Bush, Sr. (GK)

Outlook: “They are an extremely hard-working and dedicated group of individuals who provide us with excellent leadership,” Wardle said. “The team as a whole has a load of offensive skills and abilities, great work ethic and positive attitude, but we will see if we still have that willingness to do all the nitty/gritty work defensively that set the tone for us last year.”

Wardle also says “we strive to always play with passion for the game and never bring any shame to our name. We have an excellent group of student athletes in our men’s soccer program here at AHS that overall are great soccer players but more importantly are even better young men.”

Bel Air

Head coach: Dominic Rose (11th year)

2009 record: 10-3-4

Top returners: Tyler Szekalski, Sr. (M); Matt Bille’, Sr. (M); Conor Kregecz, Sr. (GK); Justin Gayo, Sr. (D); Peter Krajewski, Sr. (M); Shalone Calhoune, Sr. (D); Drew Rowlands, Sr. (D); Tony Proctor, Sr. (M); Carson Kalama, So. (F); Danny Morgan, Jr. (F).

Key newcomers: Herb Hand, Sr. (D); Amin Atchi, Sr. (M); Alex Miller, Jr. (M); Ryan Tritsch, Jr. (M); Dominic Rose, Jr. (D); Mike Gemma, Jr. (D); Christian Vito, Jr. (GK); Nat Hand, So. (F); Brandon Tolson, Fr. (F).

Outlook: “We are looking forward to the opportunity to be better than last year,” Rose said.

Key newcomers: Brandon McFadden, Jr. (F); Joey Krajewski, So. (D); Colin Miller, Fr. (GK); Manny Mastromanolis, Fr. (M)

Outlook: The Mustangs return eight players from last years 9-5-1 squad. Most of the new players are coming from an impressive 2009 JV team that went 9-1-1. This young, talented team will face a tough schedule against the likes of 2009 2A finalist Fallston, 2009 3A finalist Hereford, Archbishop Curley and Salesianum (Del.) just to name a few. Expectations are high for this young group, according to Davis.

Top returners: Casey Cheek, Sr. (D); Stuart Kennedy, Sr. (D); Nate Austin, Sr. (F); Odell Morton, Jr. (F); Zach Wolff, Jr. (M); Eric Glover, Jr. (GK)

Key newcomers: Austin Copeland, Sr. (M); Mike Carter, Sr. (M)

Outlook: “Coming off the second straight state finals has been a very motivating experience for the returning players,” Hoover said. “We have some big shoes to fill, but things are looking up for us. We have a very talented team, and like everyone else we are still finding our roles for the 2010 season. The Cougars have a Baltimore Sun Ranking of #12.”

Harford Tech

Head coach: Andy Bleichfeld (19th year)

2009 record: 5-11-1

Top returners: Dan Ashburn, Jr. (GK); Mark Leyhe, Sr. (M); Zac Lazarus, Sr. (M); Austin Lentz, Sr. (M); Jamie Rappazzo, Sr. (D)

Key newcomers: Russell Fiol, So. (D); Josh North, Jr. (D); David Brown-Jordan, So. (D)

Outlook: “Tech is trying to build on its playoff success last year. Numbers are down, although the incoming freshman class has some outstanding players,” Bleichfeld said. “We are trying to gel as a unit and trying to make great improvement over last year’s record.”

Havre de Grace

Head coach: Sean Smith (fourth year)

2009 record: 6-7

Top returners: Lamar Leonard, Sr. (D); Grant McFarland, Sr. (M); Austin Sylvester, So. (M); Farhan Bachu, So. (M)

Key newcomers: Ryan Bastian, Jr. (D); Jevon Hill-Gee, Jr. (M)

Outlook: The Warriors enter a rebuilding season after graduating eight of 11 starters from last year’s squad, though Smith says the mood from the players in the pre-season remains positive. The Warriors will rely on senior leadership from co-captains Leonard and McFarland, while also relying on experienced sophomores who contributed last season, including Austin Sylvester, Tyler Sylvester and Bachu. New additions Bastian and Hill-Gee will factor heavily into Smith’s plans as the Warriors look to advance farther into the post-season this year.

Head coach: Jim Fendryk Jr. (first year)

2009 record: 2-12

Top returners: Vince Perry, Jr. (M/F); Nick Clarke, Sr. (D)

Outlook: “The John Carroll Patriots are looking towards the opening of the 2010 soccer season with great enthusiasm,” Fendryk, who has previous coaching experience at CCBC Essex and with the Baltimore Bays, said. “After a tough season in 2009, the team has emerged both closer and stronger from that experience. With a great blend of upper class experience and some great new talent, the Patriots are targeting an MIAA playoff spot at the end of the fall campaign,” Fendryk said.


Head coach: Mike Zipay (fifth year)

2009 record: 0-12

Top returners: Robert Booker, Sr. (M); John Howard, Sr. (D); Raven Jajistar, So. (F); Jacob Diana, Sr. (M)

Key newcomers: N/A

Key newcomers: Aaron Childs, Jr. (M); Tony Roney, Jr. (M); Tyler Moen, Jr. (M); Ian Bollinger, Jr. (D); Brandon Ortiz, So. (D)

Outlook: “We graduated 11 seniors that all helped to build this program and will be tough to replace. However, the returning players, and the new boys coming up, have been conditioning and training extremely hard and are ready to go,” Rich said. “Our goal is to continue growing as a team and young program, improve up on last year’s 6-9 record and advance farther than we did last year in the regional playoffs.”
