The Fox Lane girls varsity soccer team has started a new season that involves a lot of change.
Last year, the Foxes went 6-8, and this season, are off to a 1-1 start.
Coach Fabian Videla faced of a summer of upheaval when 10 of his seniors graduated.
“There are lots of new faces this season,” Videla said. “There are a lot of young faces this season.”
The team welcomes several freshmen, including Victoria Surace and Caroline Evnin. The team also welcomes freshmen Emily DeBitetto, Stephanie Ingraldi and Emily Kowalski. Caroline Thompson is joining the team from eighth grade as Videla found himself with 11 open spots to fill in 2013.
“Leadership from returning players will be a key to the season,” Videla said. “Team unity will be a key to the season.”
Videla will be leaning heavily on his three captains: seniors Tattie Petts and Julia Santuro and junior Arianna Delli.Carpini.
Overall, Videla is hoping his new players and returning players can increase their production.
“Many of our returning players did not start last year,” Videla said.
Videla is joined by assistant coaches Laura Elwood and Kristen DeCandido.
