The Bulldawgs will be built from the net out and have some good depth on the blue line. If they can score consistently, it will be a good season.

Up front, senior Mia Price (12 goals) needs 13 points to reach 100 for her career. Senior Kelsie Griffiths (27 pts) was the team’s top scorer last year. Sydney Adamson (12 pts) and junior Catie O’Shea (14 pts) also return. New junior Ashley Miles and sophomore Emma Carleton look to be impact players.
