ECS Sports Season Outlook
As ECS students prepare for back to school next week, ECS student athletes are preparing for competition, with several games scheduled this week and next. With rosters finalized and numerous practices under their belts, it’s time to cheer on the Ellicottville Eagles and Franklinville-Ellicottville Titans!
Girls’ Varsity Soccer, Coach Mary Neilon
Season outlook: Versatile players who are more experienced than last season should help us improve our play throughout the season.
Roster includes seniors Evie Cortez, Ices Decker, Kirklind Kaleta, Kourtney Robinson, Cheyanne Folts, Lauren Olejniczak and Sarah Sheffield, juniors Kayleigh Coolidge, Robin Freaney and Becca Smith, sophomores
Camryn Earley, Julianna Giannicchi, Megan Hartsell, Kaitlyn McGuire and Gracie Rounds, and freshmen Morganne Chapman, Hayly Frederickson, and Logan Frederickson.
Boys’ Varsity Soccer, Coach Matt Finn
Season outlook: These Eagles have a lot of individual skills and a high soccer IQ, but our season will depend on how quickly they come together as a team. Our league is brutal, and our non-league consists of two bigger schools, Jamestown and Fredonia. So our record may not be where we would like it to be at the end of the season, but we should be ready to be very competitive when playoffs come around.
Roster includes seniors Mitchell Sexton, Noah Stuve, Elliot Bowen, Parker Rieman, Zach Kurtis and Evan Quinn, juniors Brenna Finn, Ned Hartsell, Logan Knab and Mike McGuire, sophomores Jack Snyder, Simon Lin and Adrian deOrbe, and freshment Noah Steinbroner, Justin Imhoff, Kolby Aldrich and Bryce Butler.
