NEWPORTâ€“Just like many of the other sports teams from North Country, the boys' soccer team also lost a large chunk of their roster to graduation.
Ten players departed the squad with a diploma while one member transferred to another school.
While coach James McKenny has almost a whole new roster to work with, one thing still remains the same; defense.
ORLEANSâ€“Tom Evans is back for his thirty-first year of coaching at Lake Region, and when asked what he has not seen in the game of soccer, it was tough for him to find an answer.
What he does know is that he will be fielding a very competitive team in 2012.
"I am very excited about the year," said Evans. "We lost five seniors which was basically our midfield, so we have our work cut out for us, but we've got a good group of returning players and if we can get the mid-field play we should be ok."
