Coach Mann sees ‘challenging’ season ahead
Coach Scott Mann’s thoughts on the upcoming season …
Welcome to the 2010 Lacrosse Season where we anticipate another fun and successful year of lacrosse at Trabuco Hills.
The team returns ten varsity players from the 2009 season — including five seniors — where the girls won a team record 14 games. Joining the returning letterman will be 10 additional players who are poised to improve upon last season’s success.
Trabuco looks to play a very challenging schedule as nine of the 15 scheduled games are against 2009 playoff teams, which includes Orange County Finalist Foothill and Semifinalist El Toro (both schools are in the highly competitive Sea View League).
- On the defensive side of the field, the Mustangs will look to the leadership of returning players Brittani Nagy (Second Team All-SVL), Lauren Thews, and Jess Tveit. These girls return with a significant amount of experience from last year. The team’s defense will be solidified by the added depth of Varsity newcomers Sarah Bacopulos, Ashley Brewer, and Rachel Lansner.
- Junior Jessie Vuozzo will bring her experience as a successful Water Polo Goalie to Trabuco’s goal circle this season.
- The midfield will be much deeper and quicker this season as returning Varsity players Chelsea Martin, Lizzie Moore (Second Team All-SVL), Kayla Heaviside, Taylor Nunez, and Lexi Witkin are joined by Danielle Leong, Hope Dodd, and Jessie Papageorge’s. This added depth will allow our starters a few minutes of rest enabling our team to play at the highest level for the entire fifty minutes.
- Finally, the offensive side of the field will be led by Varsity returners Veigh Redwine (First Team All-SVL) and Morgan Chaney (First Team All-SVL). Together they combined for 92 goals as Juniors. Joining the attack will be Varsity newcomers Sohee Ki, Stephanie Keider, and Hannah Redwine who are expected to be large contributors in the settled offense.
With many experienced players — and the addition of newcomers who have worked extremely hard in the off-season — this year’s lacrosse season looks to be quite exciting as we will challenge Foothill, El Toro, Northwood, and Woodbridge in the competitive Sea View League.
