MOUNT SAINT CHARLES ACADEMY recently honored its FALL STUDENT-ATHLETES and announced its varsity teams' Most Valuable Players during the school's MSC Athletics Awards Night on Wednesday, Nov. 28, in the school's gymnasium. Winning MVP awards were, from left, Martin Piette (boys' soccer), Cee-Jay Laquerre (boys' cross country), Amy Knueven (girls' cross country), Isabella Coppolino (girls' tennis), Isabella Miller (girls' volleyball), Reagan Mulligan (soccer cheerleading), Abigail Dalpe (girls' soccer), and Jared Beaudoin (football). round out the returnees. As for the newcomers, one of them is from the Lincoln School, which is forming a co-op with Mount and Cumberland this win- ter, junior goalie Amelia Lambert. And the best freshman of the bunch is center Sara DeSousa, who played for the Mass. Spitfire's Tier 1 team and has a bright future ahead of her. "We have some very good young players," added DiLorenzo, "and we have seven to eight 8th- graders on our middle school team, and most of them are start- ers. We'll go from senior-heavy to freshman-heavy if everybody stays (at the high school), so that chang- es the dynamic quite a bit. That will be exciting – that would be something that we haven't had in years – but right now, I can't wait to see how we do this season." The season will begin on Friday when the squad heads to Cranston Vets Arena to take on the Cranston/East Greenwich co-op team in an 8:10 p.m. affair. The team's home opener is the follow- ing Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Adelard Arena against the Toll Gate/ Pilgrim/Prout co-op squad.
