Cumberland Lincoln Edition Sports & Recreation valleybreeze.com @ DECEMBER 6-12, 2018 Co-op girls' hockey team hits ice Returning cast leads newly-named MSC/Cumberland/Lincoln School squad into battle WOONSOCKET – Tony DiLorenzo knows that his Mount Saint Charles/Cumberland/Lincoln School co-op girls' hockey team is going to be a very young squad next winter, especially with nearly half his team graduating after this season and a large group of 8th-graders, most of them from Mount's middle school squad, expected to join his 2019-20 varsity roster.

"It's going to be an interesting season, because everybody will be chasing La Salle again, but I think we'll be in the mix."

This year, La Salle will be fielding its own team, and with 21 players, includ- ing eight freshmen, and just two lost to graduation.
