Newcomers: Sr. M Emily Greuter.
Outlook: The return of 13 letter-winners should enable the Scarlet Knights to improve on a 1-17-1 finish a year ago. Look for Julia and Jenna Catalano to handle the midfield and provide some offensive punch with help from Greuter, who returns to the team after sitting out last season. Gallagher has been moved from midfield to forward to jump start the offense and Wickkiser will solidify the defense in goal.
Coach: Kelly Churchill, first season
Last year: 7-13-1, North 1 Group III first round.
Returning letter-winners: So. M Alyssa Borozan Sr. F Maddie Keegan, Sr. M Frankie Pignataro, Sr. F Krishna Vyas, Sr. M Shalexis Cramsey, Sr. F Kira Steinmark, Jr. G Morgan Detoro, Jr. D Elise Enslin, So.

Newcomers: So. F/M Olivia Timmermans, Sr. D Heather Gormley, Sr. F Shambhavi Singh, So. G Anna Murray.
Outlook: The leadership of Keegan at forward and Verrone and Pignatoro in the midfield will be heavily relied upon to bring a plethora of young players up to speed under first-year coach Churchill.

Last year: 10-9-1, Non-Public North quarterfinalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. D Katie Callahan, So. F Maddie Jordan, So. M Adriana Purcell.
Newcomers: Fr. M Jordan Gulick, Sr. G Erin Johnson, Sr. G Erin Callahan.
Outlook: The Lions made an impressive leap to 10-9-1 after finishing with just one victory two seasons ago.

Newcomers: Jr. M Kelly Martin, So. G Angela Elzind.
Outlook: Sparta boasts a big-time scorer in Curran, who has provided 37 goals and 16 assists over the last two seasons. Curran (20), Hallack (8) and Bowie (6) combined for 34 goals a year ago, and should provide a boost to a bunch of talented returning players.
Coach: Hollyce Schoepp, sixth season
Last year: 5-12-2.

Newcomers: Sr. S Keri Stefkovich, Jr. G Kaitlyn Gallaugher.
Outlook: With nine letter-winners and a lot of experience to call on, Vernon has the potential to finish strong. Communication and chemistry are the key to maximizing the talent put on the field, as will the leadership and guidance of Garafalo and Verrico, both three-year varsity starters.

Outlook: Buoyed by the return of six starters and improved team speed, Morris Knolls will look to turn things around this season.
Coach: Alex Polizzo, third season
Last year: 1-18-1.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. F Barbara Anastasi, Sr. G Anne Norwood, Jr. F Delaney Bishof, So. M Jillian Rogers.
Newcomers: Fr. M Aleyna Aydin.

Coach: Linda Cross, 18th season

Newcomers: So. D Sara Leneghan, Jr. D Danielle D’Achino, Sr. M Mackenzie Sheehan, Jr. M Kristen Sisco, So. G Meghan Corrigan, Fr. G Mackenzie Vorel.
Outlook: Randolph will rally around a solid core of seniors D’Amore, Gihorski, Patel and Varga, three-year starters who know the ropes. But the quick development of a solid group of underclassmen will dictate how far the Rams will go.
Coach: Diane Naugle-Douglas, 11th season
Last year: 5-15, North 1 Group III quarterfinalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. G Jordan Segrave, Jr. F Jaymie Fiebel, Sr. F Cassie Rhein, Sr. M Jessica Wyse, Sr. M Gina Formisano, Sr. D Samantha Brodhecker, Sr. F Janie Knapp, Jr. M Mia Sadowski, Sr. D Danielle Galgano, Sr. D Sarah Hofgesang, Jr. D Maggie Dacey, Jr. F Giovanna Harrington, So.

Returning letter-winners: Jr. F Skylar Migliaccio (24g, 10a), Jr. M Jackie Drzewinski, Jr. D Erin Rubright, Jr. G Emily Egan (16SO, 0.31 gaa), Jr. D Claire Caldarola, So. F Faith Spaziano, So. M Nicole Legg.
Newcomers: So. D Allison Egan, Jr. D Saige Mitchell, So. F Sarah Foran.
Outlook: Loaded with experience but without a senior on the roster, youth will lead the way for West Morris. Caldarola and Drzewinski solidify the defense in front of Egan while Rubright commands the midfield.
Coach: Stephen Speirs, sixth season
Last year: 15-5, North 1 Group II semifinalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. F Cayla Andrews, Sr. G Rose Bishop, Jr. F Molly Gorczyca, Sr. RFB Madison Kennedy, Sr. LFB Michaela Sass, Sr. F Sami Strathern, Sr. F Kayli Yeisley.
Newcomers: Fr. D Sierra Castiglia, Jr. F Kaitlyn Cogan, Fr. F Madison Hoskins, Jr. D Nicole Jerome, So. F Kayla Nicholls, Fr. F. Jessica Scheper, Jr. D Cheyenne Scudder, Fr. F Jordan Vandermark.
Outlook: Hackettstown is hoping to find the right blend between a slew of returning, talented players and a skillful incoming freshman class. To help make the blend mesh a little easier, Speirs has assembled a new coaching staff that includes former Hackettstown players Megan Tillou (Lynchburg) and Heather Kozimor (Ithaca), and Wayne Hills and Moravian College standout Stevie Klie.
Coach: Beverly Keur, 25th season
Last year: 5-12-4, North 1 Group II quarterfinalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. F Kayla Halloran, Jr. F Kelsey Little, Jr. M Jordyn Martin, Jr. M Marissa Sinacore, Jr. M Melissa Way.
Outlook: Replacing 13 seniors, eight of whom were starters, will be the challenge for High Point. Little (five goals) Halloran (two goals, two assists) and Way (two goals, two assists) will need to step up and lead a young, but spirited and hardworking bunch of unproven players.
Coach: Danielle Ryan, 11thseason
Last year: 2-16
Returning letter-winners: Jr. W/I Jordan Cowan, Sr. W/I Olivia Lisa, Sr. M Kylie Mastricola, Sr. M Kendra Nolan, Sr. B Kate Vialet, Sr. M Alex Gutwill, Sr. M Jess Competiello, Jr. I Nikki Paul, Jr. M Kara Cannarozzi, Sr. M Kelly Englehardt,
Newcomers: Jr. D Cassidy Connolly, Jr. M Kara Cannarozzi, Jr. D Sam Novak, Jr. G Joanna Szpernoga, Sr. F Ina Joseph
Outlook: A good mix of experience peppered with some new talent, should allow the Falcons to fill the holes left by the graduation of Avery Nicolosi and Ellen Ransegnola. The team has displayed a positive attitude and a sharp focus that should help leave last season’s 2-16 showing in the rear-view mirror.
Coach: Lauren Fasano, second season
Last year: 14-6, North 1 Group I semifinalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. F Hollis Smith, Sr. D Nicola Guisewhite, Jr. D Kristen Rafferty, Jr. G Kaylee Gentillucci.
Newcomers: Jr. D Sarah Canfield, Sr. D Madyson Griswold, Jr. M Bridget Tongo, Jr. M Bailey Connery, Jr. F Jill Amato, Fr. M Lindsey Bicher.
Outlook: This predominantly neophyte group has shown excellent team chemistry in the preseason and if it can carry over, Lenape Valley should make a push at the division and sectional title. Smith, Guisewhite, Rafferty and Gentillucci will be relied upon to lead the way.
Coach: Cindy Tserkis-Schlitt, second season
Last year: 9-9-2, NJAC-Independence champion, North 1 Group I first round.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. F Leia Bruno, Sr. F Shannon Corbitt, Sr. D Chelsea Davis (21g, 4a), Sr. D Mackenzie Hascup, Sr. D/F Vaneeza Kalsee, Sr. D Selin Kandemir, Sr. D/F Caitlin Mollahan, Sr. G Iqra Niazi, Sr. F/M Kasey Thomas, Sr. F Ally Vella, Jr. F/M Adriana Dika, Jr. F/M Claudia Yanez, So. D Makenna Sweeney, So. F Michelle Tolochko.
Newcomers: Sr. D/F Gisella Chalkan, Sr. D Shelby Hoffman, Sr. G Sarah Larsen, Sr. M/D Brighid Quinones, Sr. F Liz Sayles, So. F/M Katarina Vucenovic, Fr. F/M Kristen Gallo, Fr. F/M Nicole Krozser, Fr. F/M Brooke Olsson.
Outlook: Boonton will rely on the core group of experienced seniors —Davis, Bruno, Hascup and Thomas —to lead a club that is light on varsity experience. Davis, a first-team All Daily Record selection a year ago is a two-way threat while Hascup’s playmaking ability will be integral in transitioning from defense to offense. Thomas and Bruno will key the offense along with Tolochko, a speedy sophomore who has displayed exceptional stick skills.
Coach: Katelyn McAuliffe, eighth season
Last year: 11-10, North 1 Group I quarterfinalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. F Ally Barker, Sr. M Kristin Toedtmann, Sr. M Hannacy Gurbisz, Jr. F Rachel Stevens, Sr. B Bree Iurato, Sr. F Roxie Kloss, Sr. M Carly Perrotta, Jr. B Jade VanderWende, Jr. B Erin Lime, Jr. G Erin McFall, Jr. F Casey Soules.
Newcomers: So. M Sam Beck.
Outlook: Butler will have big shoes to fill following the graduation of Amber Haslett, the 2014 All Daily Record Player of the Year. She registered 37 goals and seven assists last season to finish as the school’s all time leading scorer with 98 goals and 21 assists. McAuliffe is counting Stevens, Toedtmann and VanderWende to form the nucleus to keep the Butler program moving in a positive direction. Stevens flourished playing alongside Haslett and should be able to flourish this season. McFall’s continued development will solidify the defense.
Coach: Diane Bolchune, second season
Last year: 8-12-1 , North 1 Group I quarterfinalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. M Lauren Burklow, Sr. F Kate Weidmann, Sr. F Natalie Trautwein, Sr. G Kaitlyn Natoli, Jr. F Lexi Toback, Jr. F Emilian Hokr, Jr. M Samantha Murphy, Sr. D Meghan Schaffner, Sr. D Julia Taormina.
Newcomers: So. D Maria McLaughlin, So. M Claire Dudgeon, So. M Julia Blahut.
Outlook: Pequannock made a significant improvement in Bolchune’s first season, finishing 8-12-1 after a 2-15 showing in 2013. With Burklow among the top midfielders in Morris County, and Trautwein, Toback, Hokr and Weidmann at forward with Natoli in goal, the Golden Panthers have a solid foundation and will be contenders for the division crown
Coach: Stephanie Fasano, first season
Last year: 1-17-1.

Newcomers: Fr. D Grace Boylan, Fr. D Chrissy DiBridida, Fr. F Mia Ferriso, Fr F/D Lauren Hawk, Fr. D Mia Pinsonault.

Coach: Nicole Allocco, fifth season
Last year: 9-9-4, North 2 Group I semifinalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. F Arianna Marino, Sr. G Lisa Foran, Sr. B Brianna Crane.

Coach: Ann Marie Davies, 32nd season
Last year: 19-2, Morris County Tournament champion, NJAC-Liberty champion, NJSIAA Group II finalist.

Outlook: With 16 letter-winners, including nine starters, returning, Madison is poised to make another run at the Group II title. The Dodgers are loaded with talent led by midfielder Kaitlyn DaSilva and her twin sister Amanda on defense. The Dodgers return double-digit scorers Romano, a member of the U17 national team who has verbally committed to UConn, Stephanie Dellavia, and Turnbull, who will play at Lafayette next fall.

Returning letter-winners: Sr. M Jane Brennan, Sr. M Abby Marshall, Sr. M Vivian Yi, Sr. M Victoria Rose, Sr. G Meghan Cuozzo, Jr D Lili Laderach, Jr. M/D Eva Lane, Jr. F Shalom Kercher, Jr. F/M Holly Smith, Jr. M/D Sydney McDonald, Jr. F/M Julia Aasmaa.

Last year: 12-5-1, North 1 Group II quarterfinalist.

Outlook: Lanigan, DeIntinis, and Abreu will be the cornerstones of a rebuilding project that will have to overcome the loss of 14 seniors. The quick development of a host of young, but talented players should have the Red Hawks ready to battle.
Coach: Kaitlin Leyden, first season
Last year: 13-8, North 2 Group II quarterfinalist.

Newcomers: So. M Noelle Bessette, So, M Charlotte Buckman.
Outlook: A large contingent of untested players will have to respond to and rally around the leadership provided by experienced seniors Barry, Wingate, Emily Buckman, Krieger and Saul. Buckman is one of the top goalkeepers in Morris County and should be able carry the Cougars as they develop.
Coach: Lori Welles, second season
Last year: 16-3, NJAC-United champion, North 2 Group III finalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. M Samantha DiMaio, Sr. M Ally Chapis, Sr. M Tara Litjens, Sr. G Morgan Turner, Sr. D Tori Fessenden, Sr. D Alex Giarusso, Sr. F Emma Guthrie, Sr. F Isabella Nardone, Sr. D Shannon Epstein, Jr. F Elizabeth Audino, Jr, F Ally Reardon, So. M Camryn Litjens, So. D Avery Smith.

Outlook: Welles guided her club to the North 2, Group III title game (a 2-1 loss to Warren Hills) in her first season at the helm after serving as an assistant for 18 years. With a wealth of experience, led by Chapis and Tara Litjens, Mendham should be in the hunt for both division and sectional titles.

Returning letter-winners: Sr. F Kellie Vizzuso (8g, 14a), Sr. M Kayla Armondo, Sr. D Jennifer Jastrebzski, Sr. D Rachel Yu, Sr. G Sarah Karback, Sr. D Gina Della Stritto, Sr. D Karli Camasta, Sr. D Serena Irmiere, Sr. M Kelsey Peretta, Jr M/D Brynn Gille, Jr. M/ D Tiffani Roberti, Jr. F/M Emily George, So. F Emilee Vizzuso, So. F Angelina Abbott, So. F Rachel McHale.
Newcomers: Jr. M/D Giana Prudente.
Outlook: Having graduated only three seniors and with a large contingent of seasoned talent, Hinz believes that her team will be able to challenge division rivals Mendham, Morristown and Chatham this season. Look for a breakout season from talented Kellie Vizzuso. Jastrebzski in the midfield and Yu on defense are both solid and should be able to help the Mustangs rise above the .500 record they’ve turned in the past two seasons.

Newcomers: Sr. M Carly Gerth.
Outlook: The returning seniors will have the task of bringing eight new starters up to speed. Gerth, a first-year varsity player, has already hit the ground running and should be a factor in the midfield and should help Newton compensate for the offensive output of the graduated Alexis Ambrosino (21 goals, 12 assists).
Coach: Lisa Bechtel, 26th season

Coach: Brian Gravatt, first season
Last year: 10-9-1, North 1 Group I quarterfinalist.
Returning letter-winners: Sr. M/D Gianna Lorusso, Sr. M Kelsey Conlon, Jr. D Elinor Dowd, Jr. G Jenna Sagan, Sr. F Claudia Wetzel, Sr. D Carly DeSanto.
