Outlook for 2009: [We] should contend in a very strong South-West Conference this year. Brookfield, Barlow and Newtown appear to be the teams to beat, with Pomperaug and Masuk not far behind. We will need to find someone to fill the void left by first-team all-state defender Ani Lekaj, as well as 15-goal scorer Max Schneider. Sean Pearson and Miguel Carneiro return giving us [possibly] the best center midfield combination in the area. If Zane Swanson can win balls in the back and Nick Murad and Russell Parker can finish up front, we should be right in the mix.
