The Lady Red Raiders lost two record-setting players to graduation.
Morgan Brooks finished her career as the program’s all-time leader in goals, and Madisen Paige capped her career as the all-time leader in assists. Brooks led the team with 17 goals, and Paige had 12 goals and a team-high 14 assists last year.
“They were huge contributors, but I feel that the team’s really working hard to be able to move forward and fill those spots that they’ve left,” Bellefonte coach Stacey Miller said.
Bellefonte has 10 returning letterwinners, including sophomore Kara Bates, who was third on the team with seven goals last year.
The Lady Red Raiders are coming off a memorable season as they reached the district championship game for the first time in program history. Bellefonte fell 1-0 to Central in the title game.
This year’s group plans on returning to the championship game.
“There are a lot of them that were on the team last year that are returning this year,” Miller said. “They felt like they missed out and are looking to get back there again and want to prove that they can win that district championship.”
