MA Fall Sports Preview
by The Milton Measure on Friday, September 21st, 2012
After a gut-wrenching loss to Nobles to close the 2011 season, the football squad is back with a vengeance this year. With coach MacDonald at the helm, the team’s line-up is sure to be one of the best prepared in the ISL. The backfield consists of Drew Jacobs (II), the ISL’s third place leading scorer last year, at tailback and Anthony Scurto (II) and John Fadule (II) both at quarterback. The defense will be rock solid this year, led by Matt Morin (II), John Oda-Gallagher (I), and James Oliver (I), so we can be sure the Mustangs will lead the way in the ISL.
The 2012 boys’ soccer team shows a lot of promise this season under captains Michael Cooke (I) and Chris Cahoon (I). With a big 10-2 win over Dexter already under their belts, the team is entering the season with confidence. Along with many returning players, the soccer team also has plenty of young talent. They will take on Lawrence at home on Saturday, a game sure to be a thrilling indication of what the Mustangs can do.
After a very successful 2011 season in which they qualified for the New England Championship tournament, this year’s girls’ soccer team looks forward to another winning year. Each player contributes to the team’s outstanding chemistry and flawless on-field teamwork. Returning after receiving All-ISL honors last year are Chandler Quintin (II) and her older sister Jordan (I) along with captains Sam Curran (I), Jess Li (I), and Sophia Tsanotelis (I).
Following its 2011 inaugural season, the Milton volleyball team is looking to be a serious contender this year. The experience they lacked last year has been remedied by a season of competition and diligent offseason training. On the back of captain Sam Clifford (I), the Mustangs have the heart and grit to become one of the top ISL teams.
With the loss of three All-ISL players and one ISL Honorable Mention, the 2012 field hockey team has big shoes to fill. Captains Ali Gendron (I) and Ale Gianino (I) maintain the spirit and discipline necessary for a cohesive team, and it seems to be paying off. Watch out for these girls on Saturday as they take on Lawrence at home.
Boy’s and Girl’s Cross Country
Under Coach Scott Bosworth, the boys team is sure to be one of the strongest in the ISL. Leading the team this year are captains Ben Bosworth (I) and Adam Rochelle (I). On the girl’s side, returning All-ISL runners Maddie Warwick (II) and Lindsay Atkeson (I) lead a squad with great potential.
