Coach’s Outlook for 2011 season:
“The 2010 team tied their 2009 recent best record of 14-4, but this year the Tigers will set their sights on the FSL title that eluded them last season. We have many newcomers and will strive to gel quickly. Currently, there is a 3 way battle in the cage for the starting goalkeeper position.”

“This is a talented group of girls with a lot of varsity experience. With eleven returning varsity players, we will look to make a run at the FSL title this year. We are returning 3 of our 4 top scorers from last year and have a great group of underclassmen to help all over the field.”
