2010 record: 5-7-3

Top returners: Shane Carroll, Sr., (Midfield); Brandon McFadden, Sr., (Midfield); Matt Madeira, Sr., (Midfield); Grant Caspero, Sr., (Defense); Lee Frailer, Jr., (Defense); Manny Mastromanolis, So., (Forward); Colin Miller, So., (Goalie)

Key newcomers: Austin Carlevaro, Jr., (Defense); Dakota Stern, So., (Defense)

Outlook: The Mustangs return eight starters and 15 returnees from last year's young squad that finished 5-7-3. Three freshmen and three sophomores were in last year's starting 11 and a year of seasoning should have the Mustangs poised for a successful 2011 campaign. CMW might have arguably the toughest public school schedule in the state. Matches against McDonough, Gilman, Mount St. Joe, Salesianum (Del.), River Hill, and Hereford should have them battle tested early. Davis says the goals are to use the tough schedule to identify team weaknesses and prepare for UCBAC and regional competitions. Former CMW player and grad Brian Tully serves as assistant coach.
