Mary Anne Catalano, 12th year
Who did you lose off last year's squad?
Last year, I lost 11 seniors. Their experience with cheering at games this fall will be sorely missed!
Who are your key returning players?
Key returning players are Ingraham, who has to stay healthy in order for us to have a shot at an FCIAC/State championship; Mary Andrews, who is by far our best all-around athlete on my team; and Clare Loughran, who is also one of our top flyers. If she continues at the pace she is at, she will be an amazing asset to our team.
Who will need to have an impact season for you to be successful?
The incoming freshmen will have an opportunity to have a big impact for our team if they continue to condition, tumble and work as hard as they all did at camp.
What are your biggest strengths?
Our biggest strengths are how strong these young ladies are. They lift each other and toss them in the air with little or no exertion. The girls are well trained to compete at a very high level.
What are your biggest weaknesses?
Our biggest weakness is probably having a very young team. They are talented but time will tell how they do at crunch time on the mat for competition.
Our matchups will come during our competition season from January through March, which we look forward to each year.,
