CENTRAL RED DEVILS

Last year’s record, finish: 0-18, No. 20

Roster: Sr. Aaron Bell, Sr. Randy Boulier, Sr. Ben Brewer, Sr. Christopher Brownell, Jr. Brady Bubar, Jr. Brandon Buzzell, So. Hunter Campbell, Jr. Christopher Eriksson, Sr. Brandan Laliberte, Jr. Dylan Moore, Sr. William Paul, So. Anthony Underhill, Jr. Brian Vargas; coach: Curt Davis

DEXTER TIGERS

Last year’s record, finish: 9-9, No. 13

Roster: Jr. Cole Campbell, Jr. Matthew Crane, So. Trevor Fogarty, So. Ethyn Gould, Jr. Dylan Graffam, Jr. Casey Jordan, Jr. Malcolm Mitchell, Sr. Erik Nytell, Sr. William Pearsall, Jr. Robbie Pratt, So. Nathan Robichaud, So. Dustin Sirabella, Sr. Tyler White, Sr. Ryan Wilks; coach: Peter Murray

Outlook: We have three returning starters from last year’s team that finished 9-9. We will have a young team with only one returning senior letter winner from last year. We have a nice mixture of guards and some young big men. We should be a good defensive and rebounding team. We’ll need to be because scoring comes hard for us. Key players will be senior guard Wilks, sophomore point guard Fogarty (a starter last year as a frosh), junior forwards Crane and Jordan (both two-year starters) and sophomore center Sirabella. Seniors Pearsall and White, along with juniors Graffam and Mitchell, as well as sophomore Gould should also see plenty of action this season. Cautiously optimistic about qualifying for a playoff spot this season.
