Coach’s outlook: “This is my first season at East. I am really looking forward to coaching this team. We have a lot of solid players and I am anxious to see how the girls come together. With the loss of Taylor Hall (state-leading 70 goals last season), it will be interesting to see how well the girls adapt to the possession style of play we are working on. Different girls are going to have to step up and we are definitely going to have to play a more well-rounded game than in previous seasons.”
