Head Coach: Jim Kent
Key Players: Eric Ligda, Sr.; Ryan Lincoln, Sr.; Ethan Means, Sr.; C.J. Neale, Sr.; Jeremy Barcola, Sr.; Chase Abeldt, Jr.; Kara Walton, Soph.; Ben Berberich, Jr.
Outlook: With a solid group of players returning, the Red Devils should be competitive in the division.
"I have very high expectations for us,' said Kent. "I'm almost afraid to say if we're anything less than 14-3 I'd be disappointed. It should be an exciting year and I'm really looking forward to it.'
Head Coach: Pete Lovenguth
Key Players: Kevin Connors, Jr.; Austin Kobilka, Sr.; Mark Hogan, Sr.; Jordan Berghuis, Jr.; Andrew Hammer, Jr.; Tim Hurley, Jr.; Luke Thompson, Sr.
Outlook: The Eagles are coming off two straight division titles and have enough firepower to make a run at another one.
"I'm looking for leadership from Kevin Connors because we lost four experienced players,' said Lovenguth. "I hope what we taught the younger kids resonates through. The goal is always the same, to have a successful season, and be good sportsmen at the end of the day.'
Head Coach: Jason Castaldi
Key Players: Riley Smith, Sr.; Sammie Staudt, Soph.; Sean Griffin, Jr.; Kurt Eichelroth, Jr.; Derek Hoffman, Jr.; Mitch Hoffman, Jr.; Ryan Russell, Jr.
Outlook: Coatesville will look to be a more competitive team this season with seven starters returning from last year.
"Riley Smith will lead the team with help from sophomore state qualifier Sammie Staudt,' said Castaldi. "But it's the juniors who will decide the outcome of our season. The overall success of our season will depend on how often we play to our potential.'
Head Coach: Scott Yard
Key Players: Cam Byrnes, Sr.; Rob Baxley, Sr.; Cole McCook, Jr.; Jake Gray, Jr.; Josh Madarang, Jr.
Outlook: "We are anxious to get the season rolling,' said Yard. "I am optimistic about our chances as we return five of our top eight from last year. We also have two or three freshmen who look promising.'
Head Coach: Mike Ladden
Key Players: Mark Miller, Jr.; Hunter Blouch, Jr.; Liam McAnally, Sr.; Peter Kissinger, Jr.; Erik Shobaken, Jr.
Outlook: "I think I have four kids who will match up with the top four on the other teams,' said Ladden. "From there I'm not sure where we stand as far as the fifth player. That will dictate who wins and loses.'
Head Coach: Brian Busby
Key Players: Zach Smith, Sr.; Sam Dalton, Jr.; Mack Moynihan, Jr.; Travis Crump, Jr.; Colin Nicolson, Jr.
Outlook: "We were 2-16 last year, so I think we'll be improved,' said Busby. "I'm not sure how much, but I think we'll be a better team than last year, a deeper team. This year we have a few more kids who can help out a little bit.'
Head Coach: Steve Cutler
Key Players: Jack Gergel, Sr.; Mark DiMatteo, Sr.; Matt Gorman, Sr.; Luigi Capriotti, Jr.; Michael Breuninger, Soph.; John Clark, Soph.; Alex Drap, Jr.; Dylan Teeter, Fresh.; Patrick Muth, Fresh.
Outlook: "We have a solid front line,' said Cutler. "We'll bring the youth along and hopefully get our wins from the 6-7-8 positions. The younger guys are getting some playing time and putting up decent scores.'
Head Coach: Gregg Russell
Key Players: Brendan Young, Sr.; Sawyer Wolfers, Sr.; Jake Nissle, Sr.; Jake McGlone, Jr.; Brett Boyle, Soph.; Geoff Rice, Soph.; Kevin Maslowe, Sr.; Matt Nagy, Sr.
Outlook: The Patriots have three All-Ches-Mont players back in Young, Wolfers and Nissle, so they will be a solid contender in the division.
"If everybody plays the way they're supposed to we should be all right,' said Russell. "We've set some pretty lofty goals. Guys want to get back to districts and beyond. As seniors they want to go out with a bang.'
Head Coach: John Griffith
Key Players: Yohsuke Kobayashi, Sr.; Evan Brown, Fresh.; Tommy Dougherty, Sr.; Alex Wilson, Soph.; Greg Badis, Jr.; Henry Gaver, Sr.; Hunter Schmeusser, Sr.; Beau Schmeusser, Soph.; Jake Eberle, Soph.
Outlook: The Blue Demons will have to get the most from their experienced players and hope for solid input from the younger ones.
"I'm encouraged with our numbers so far,' said Griffith.
Head Coach: Rodney King
Key Players: Daulton Pointek, Jr.; Kent Lantz, Sr.; Devon Amen, Jr.; Kallie Rhodes, Jr.; Alexander Meek, Soph.; Dennis Murphy, Soph.
Outlook: The Braves will face a tough group of opponents in the division, but they're always tough at Moccasin Run, their home course.
"These three players (Pointek, Lantz and Amen) will have to carry this team,' said King. "They are all capable of shooting low scores, and they're all hoping to make it to districts this year.'
Head Coach: Josh Socash
Key Players: Sean Gallagher, Soph.; Ryan Lawlor, Jr.; Chris Franjesh, Jr.; Joe Niedziejko, Sr.; Garrett Cahill, Sr.
Outlook: The Hornets will be faced with a difficult group of opponents in the division.
"To compete with teams like Unionville we would need to shoot around 200,' said Socash. "A reasonable goal by midseason would be maybe 215. Our kids play, but not every day. But we should be better than last year.'
Head Coach: Greg Kanaskie
Key Players: Matt Scargle, Jr.; Blake Hinckley, Jr.; Nick Ward, Sr.; Chris Rock, Sr.; Bryan Aiken, Sr.; Ryan Kowash, Sr.; T.J. Kline, Sr.; Matt Kowash, Jr.; Kate Evanko, Soph.; Mac Rayne, Soph.
Outlook: The Indians shot a team score of 176 at Honeybrook in their season opener. Another undefeated Ches-Mont season is not out of the question.
"We have the potential to put up some good numbers,' said Kanaskie. "This is a great bunch of kids.'
Head Coach: Joe Paris
Key Players: Trey Swanson, Jr.; Chris Chizauskie, Sr.; Steve Murta, Sr.; Matt Myers, Sr.; Tristan Burr, Jr.; Dan Ginsburg, Sr.; Luke Shevlin, Fresh.; Bella Starke, Jr.; Cooper Kronenburger, Soph.
Outlook: "We'll be facing some tough competition,' said Paris. "I think we'll be tough, too. I feel we're pretty solid one through five. The kids are super competitive.'
Head Coach: Kevin Pechin
Key Players: Andrew Wilner, Jr.; Mike Cook, Jr.; Robert Olseski, Sr.; John Miller, Sr.; Jace Kienzle, Jr.; Sam Friedman, Jr.
Outlook: The Pioneers are coming off a 14-1 season that included a Central League title and a fifth-place finish at districts. They should be strong this season, too.
"The Central League is deep and should be a dogfight,' said Pechin "If we can take it one match at a time, we should fare well. We're young but experienced. Everybody playing this year has varsity experience.'
Head Coach: Eric Fulmer
Key Players: Steven Yuh, Jr.
Outlook: The Griffins will be playing an abbreviated Bicentennial League schedule and hoping for the best.
"This will be a bit of a rebuilding year,' said Fulmer. "We'll be looking at a group of freshmen and players up from the JV squad.'
Head Coach: Frank Casey
Key Players: Eric DiPietro, Jr.; Joe Bilotti, Sr.; Dan Brace, Jr.; Joe Conroy, Jr.; Dan McCallister, Jr.;
Outlook: "We have a promising freshman group,' said Casey. "We should be better than last year, but I'm not sure how that will translate into wins and losses. Eric DiPietro is probably one of the top three or four players in the league.'
Head Coach: Scott Yard
Key Players: Anna Kowalczyk, Sr.; Heather Flynn, Jr.; Lilly Streeter, Soph.; Kenzie Yard, Soph.; Megan Gebhart, Sr.
Outlook: The Cougars will be playing in the PAC-10 this season and have a number of players returning.
"We'll return nine of 10 roster players from last year,' said Yard. "We hope to be competitive with the well-established teams from Spring-Ford, Boyertown, and Perk Valley.'
Head Coach: Cathy Cook Russell
Key Players: Katie Brophy, Sr.; Rachel Cowgill, Sr.; Brittany Edwards, Sr.; Emily Kim, Sr.; Maddie Henry, Jr.; Sarah West, Jr.; Alli Brophy, Fresh.; Laura Arbuckle, Soph.; Jessie Boyle, Sr.; Lucy Haubold, Jr.; Amanda Hutchinson, Fresh.; Valerie Calhoun, Soph.; Brooke Lionetti, Soph.
Outlook: The Patriots are hoping to make their mark in the PAC-10 this season.
"I really like where we're going,' said Russell. "I like the fact we'll field a full team every week. This is a good group of seniors and we're hoping to bring the juniors and sophomores along. The freshmen are fearless. We're ready to go have some fun and have a good year.'
Head Coach: Mike Selvig
Key Players: Cara Basso, Soph.; Julie Lucarelli, Sr.; Ally Bozzi, Jr.; Brittany Rogers, Jr.; Liz Law, Soph.; Erin DiDonato, Fresh.; Gianna Ward, Fresh.; Laura Lucarelli, Fresh.; Mary Katherine Clark, Fresh.; Anna O'Brien, Fresh.
Outlook: Basso, the defending PIAA Class AA girls champion, is back, so the Hurricanes have a strong, consistent player. They're hoping for a solid season in the Athletic Association of Catholic Academies.
"We lost four starting seniors to graduation and one transfer student, so we're five down,' said Selvig. "The other girls will have to step up, so only time will tell.'
