The team capsules keep coming as we inch ever closer to the start of the 2013 season. Next up is Scarsdale, a squad that came within a double-overtime loss of making it to the Class AA sectional final.
With the return of two all-section players and 13 plays from last year’s team the Raiders should be another formidable opponent.
Below is Scarsdale coach Mindy Genovese’s capsule.
Coach: Mindy Genovese (fourth season); Kiera Fox (asst.)
Last season’s record: 16-3
Playoffs: Lost to Arlington in sectional semifinals.
Key returners: Ali Lonner, Sr., Gk.; Meera Dheer, Sr., Fd.; Erica Smith, Sr., Md.; Stef Katsoff, Sr., Df.; Kristina Camaj, Jr., Mid.; Libby Closson, Jr., Mid.; Taylor Mancini, Jr., Def.; Eryn MacDonald, So., Df.; Zoe Epstein, So., Def.
College commitments: Meera Dheer: Cornell
Coach’s notes: This year we have two returning all-section players, Ali Lonner in goal and Meera Dheer on offense. Lonner posted 9 shutouts for us last season while Dheer had 10 goals and 13 assists. Although it will be tough to replace Sarah Frohman, who plays at Amherst College, and Annalise Warren, we have 13 returning players and are looking forward to another successful season.
