As the Princeton Day School girls’ soccer team heads into the 2018 season, it faces some big challenges.
First, the squad suffered a major loss with the graduation of senior star defenders and team leaders Madi Coyne and Rebecca Kuzmicz.
“We are still trying to figure out how we are going to fill that void,” said PDS head coach Pat Trombetta, who led the Panthers to a 12-6-1 record in 2017 and its fifth straight state Prep B title. “We might have some new faces in the back that have not been tested.”
