Hurricanes return as team to beat

Coach: Ron Wojcik (4th year)

Last year: 18-6, won South Division and Western Mass. Division II tournament.

Key returnees: Emily Rosse, Jr.; McKenzie Robinson, Jr.; Jenn Gale, Sr.; Meg Rodowicz, Sr.; Maddie Ryan, So.; Amber Lesure, Jr.

The Hurricanes won their first-ever Western Mass. title last year by pressuring the ball and running and pressuring the ball and running some more.

Wojcik believes the formula will be the same this year.

"Yeah, all we're going to do is press full-court and get out on the break," he said. "It's pretty basic, but that's really all we did last year."

The press will be keyed by Megan Rodowicz, who doesn't score a lot of points, but doesn't allow her opponents to score much, either.

If the game slows down, the Hurricanes have Western Mass. tournament most valuable player Rosse, she of the soft hook shot, in the paint.

But the Hurricanes don't really expect to play a slowed-down game. Wojcik believes their pressure defense will cause a lot of problems for teams.

"We expect," said Wojcik, "to do pretty well this year."
