Three things you should know:
Five of the returnees -- Bantle, Hadley, Dylan Hilchey, Larabee and Walker -- were state qualifiers a year ago. Senior Nicole Clement, Hadley, Krutiak and Larabee will serve as team captains, though Clement will likely miss the season due to a knee injury.
Hadley, Dylan Hilchey and Larabee were second-place finishers at last year's Western Mass. meet. They, along with some newcomers, will be looked upon to pick up where graduation losses Sean Derby-Kilfoyle, Eli Coniglio and John Carvalho left off.
"We knew we had to replace some of them, and one of them was going to be Ross Jackson," Miro said. "He's pretty good. He needs to get battle-tested, because he's been staying behind. He's got tremendous length and leverage."
Though Travis Hilchey is just an eighth grader, he's already a second-year varsity starter at 103. He went 16-10 last season for the Mounties.
