Outlook: The Midshipmen won their fourth straight Patriot League championship last season, but they face a tough new challenger as Loyola joins the conference. With holes to fill on both ends of the field, the Mids will rely on a lot of players who saw action last season as well as some of their 15 freshmen. Last year's defense had tremendous depth, and that will help, along with the return of sophomore Lizzy Rullan, who missed much of last season with a fractured femur. Gennaro and Generi lead an attack that needs to replace the 127 points that graduated with Patriot League Player of the Year Jasmine DePompeo, who scored 56 goals and assisted on 32 percent of those scored by her teammates.
