Young Lisle team looks to improve during season with a new coach at the helm, while Benet looks to defend East Suburban Catholic Conference title without trio of 2012 state qualifiers
Coach: Eileen Gonda
What to watch: Eileen Gonda, an assistant last season, takes over the head coaching role and takes over a team with just three seniors: Alexandria McClain, Abigail Ortiz-Romigio and Michaela Wright. There are 11 sophomores and two freshman on the roster.
Lisle hosts its Mega Meet Saturday to kick off an invite season that will take the Lions to Yorkville (April 12) and Plano (April 20) prior to the Interstate Eight Conference (May 2) and sectional (May 10) postseason meets.
Coach: Scott Brooks
What to watch: Last year’s East Suburban Catholic Conference champions will be looking to defend their title, though that will be a challenge without 2012 state qualifiers Darcy Cadman, Nini Marchese and Anne Yahiro.
The Redwings will certainly pit themselves against some of the best during their invite schedule, which sees them head to St. Charles North (April 6), Naperville North (April 12) and Glenbard East (April 19) before the ESCC meet May 1 at Concordia University.
