Previewing Fall Sports
by Neel Taneja on Friday, June 7th, 2013
As spring sports come to a close, it’s time to look ahead to the fall season. All the Milton teams are poised to be serious contenders, and it’s clear that we have phenomenal talent across the board.
After a posting a record of 5–3 this past year, Varsity Football looks to improve its performance this fall. The team looks very strong, with plenty of juniors and seniors looking to give Coach Mac his 8th ISL Championship. Defensive end Andrew Godwin (III) recently said, “Next year should be a great season. We have a lot of veteran football players and a lot of younger talent too.” Co-captained by Drew Jacobs (II), Nelson Thomas (II), Anthony Scurto (II) and buoyed by Justin Yoon’s (III) nationally recognized kicking, the team is sure to bring an electric intensity to the field. The football team will be playing a new schedule this coming season and will look to seriously contend for both the ISL and New England Championships.
Although both boys and girls soccer teams are losing key senior players, an excellent group of current sophomores and freshman will definitely help the teams to be able to compete for an ISL championship. After winning a respectable 8 games last year, Varsity Girls’ Soccer looks to take the next step and rise to the top of the ISL. This past year, each player contributed to the team’s great chemistry and flawless teamwork. As far as the Boys’ team, varsity player Jesse Martinez (III), dubbed by his teammates as “the chosen one”, said, “As a team, we are looking for a top 4 finish and certainly have the talent to do it with the help of our Captain, Liam White (II). Next year is looking bright and is certainly going to be fun…we could even become league champs.” The outlook for both soccer teams is positive for next season and looking into the future
After a disappointing loss to Nobles to close the 2012 season, the field hockey squad has a lot to prove. Despite losing senior standouts, Ale Gianino (I) and Ali Gendron (I), this team is loaded with plenty of young talent and veteran leadership, and looks to improve on last year’s 6-win season. Led by rising senior co-captains, Cameron Park and Maura Noone, the team will make a strong bid for the ISL title next season.
Under Coach Scott Bosworth, both Cross Country teams are sure to be atop the ISL. Captains Rick Dionne (III) and Charlie Janeway (II) will lead the boys’ team through a successful season. On the girls’ side, multiple All-ISL runners such as Maddie Warwick (II) and Emmy Bosworth (III) will help the team have another fantastic season and hopefully repeat their ISL Championship.
Following a great 2012 season, the Volleyball team hopes to be a serious contender this year. Marina Fleites (III), member of the volleyball team, recently said, “ We have a really strong team and we all have our different strengths. For example, Devon Moehlenkamp (II) can block really well, Jamie Murray (III) consistently hits hard, and Debbie Lee (II) is a great passer and all-around player.” This depth and skill level should help the Volleyball team to another strong season.
