Questions For The Season


How will Emily Fluke build on her incredible rookie season?

With Kelly Babstock departing, for the Buffalo Beauts, even more pressure will be heaped upon second year player Emily Fluke. Who had a great rookie season, leading the team in all offensive categories.


How will Cydney Roesler do in her new role of being a player/assistant coach?

Cydney Roesler was named assistant coach for the Whale this season, last year she was an Assistant Coach for Quinnipiac University. The defender will have two roles to play for the Whale this season.


Who will be the starting goalie for the Whale this season?

With last year’s starting goalie Sydney Rossman leaving for the Minnesota Whitecaps, questions about who will start for the Whale this season have arisen. There will certainly be a battle between Sam Walther and Maria Sorokina for who starts between the pipes for the Whale this season.
