PPH Field hockey preview: Class B Teams to watch

5. York: The Wildcats lost some of the region’s top players from last year’s Class B state title team, but they are still the team to beat in Class B South. Coach Barb Marois is one of the best at putting her players in the right position to win and she has some good ones. Seniors Sydney Bouchard and Natalie Panteleos will lead the offense and junior defender Emlyn Patry is exceptional. Jessa Smith will add to the offense and Katie Donovan and Cassie Reinertson will be strong defensively. Julia Carr and Julianna Kiklis both return in goal.

York opens season with 54-game win streak

...However, the Wildcats return just six starters from last year’s state title team, and head coach Barb Marois knows there could be some growing pains this season.

“We’re working through some things,” said Marois, who has guided the Wildcats to four state titles and 11 state championship appearances in her first 17 years at the helm of the program.

“We’re always trying to challenge the girls to play at a certain level and I think they like that challenge; that’s what we’re all working towards together.”

York opens the season on Thursday against Class C South foe North Yarmouth Academy.

Youth served as Mariners stick to growth plan

Outlook: “I am very excited about this group of girls,” said Hall. “We are young and will be putting several freshmen onto the field. They are collectively the strongest freshmen class I have had in several years and they are working really hard to make the adjustment to the demands of the high school game. Our veteran players are doing a great job bringing them along. If we are healthy and gain confidence as we improve throughout the season, we could realize our goal of qualifying for postseason play.”

Now in tough Class A, Camden Hills ready for competitive campaign

Outlook: This season will be the first foray into the Class A ranks for the Windjammers, who essentially are being tossed into the deep end of the pool — among the likes of the Skowhgan Indians, who have won 14 of the last 16 state Class A crowns.

Clement said her team should be strong defensively, but will need to find a way to manufacture goals. And having 12 of the 17 players on the roster with varsity experience can only help Camden Hills.

“We have a lot of versatile players, but as a team we have to focus more on scoring,” she said. “Our offensive line last year struggled to connect with the ball and keep possession, and this year we still need to work on that. If our offense can get aggressive, we should be okay. With so many returning varsity players we have great leadership and good communication on the field that's leading to successful passing and transitions, but we'll need to focus on scoring.”
