Conestoga (girls)
Head coach: Amy Orcutt, ninth year.
Last year’s record: 21-3, Central League champions, District 1 champions, lost to Garnet Valley in PIAA state quarterfinals.
Key returnees: senior midfielder Ceara Sweeney (commit to Army, coming back at mid-season after ACL injury); senior midfielder Amelia Kienzle (commit to Delaware); junior midfielder Sydney Sloan (commit to William and Mary); sophomore attack Julia Littlewood (commit to Lehigh); sophomore midfielder Cameron Evitts (commit to Penn State).
Others to watch: junior attack Nia Scott (commit to Louisville); senior attack Tessa Kerin (commit to Mercer); senior attack Maddie Wood.
Outlook: Orcutt said, “With graduating 12 seniors last year – we lost Scottie Rose Growney to UNC, Liz Scott to Loyola, Elisabeth Ingersoll to Penn and Maddie Little to Liberty – we are very young but very talented with lots of speed in the midfield. We look to compete in the Central league and in District 1.”
