BOYS TENNIS
Key Returners: Conor Somers, Nevo Genossar, Wayne Simon, Andrew Roberts

Last Season: Roller coaster regular season, but finished strong in the TCIS tournament earning 2nd place. Lost in the first round of states.

This year’s expectations: With most of their key players returning this season, the team is older and more mature. Few of their losses from last year were close matches. With a more mature and experienced team, they look to prevail in close matches. They look to accomplish more than just reaching the state tournament, by making some noise and going deep into the tournament.

GIRLS SOCCER
Key returners: Virginia Apperson, Skylar Johnson, Kaitlyn Kalfus

Last season: Finished 8-10-3, winning all of their games in league play. Reached the TCIS finals, but fell short to Norfolk Collegiate. If they had won, they would have had a bid to play in the State Tournament.

This year’s expectations: With a team led by a group of seniors, the girls soccer team expects to shock a lot of people. Since their record didn’t reach over .500 last year, people were surprised to see them reach the TCIS final. The Dolphins hope to come together and make a deep run into the state tournament this year.

BOYS LACROSSE
Key returners: Joe Tobin, Tyler Morris, Kyle Tompkins, Hunter Harrington, Andrew Branson, Ben Baumann, Sam Scanlon

Last Season: Finished with a 7-10 record overall, and was over .500 in league play. Although the regular season was a bit rough, the team still managed to sneak their way into the TCIS final against their rival Norfolk Academy. They fell short, but remained positive knowing that they had earned themselves a bid to play in the state tournament. In the state tournament, they faced St. Anne’s-Belfield School, who was the eventual state champion. Cape Henry fell short to them, 15-5.

This year’s expectations: With a majority of the team returning, the lacrosse team will be experienced and have a lot of chemistry on and off the field. They plan to use the experience and chemistry they have to rally themselves and win big games. They have a big chip on their shoulder and understand what they want to accomplish this season.
