Youth will be the key word for the 2012 Kane boysâ€™ soccer team.
Head coach Ernie Chamberlain, now in his fifth year at the helm, must replace 10 starters from a team that was one win short of making the playoffs.
Chamberlain has 18 players on his roster, with three being returning letterwinners. Zach Hadfield is the only senior on the team, and will be one of the two captains. Junior Riley Austin will be the other captain of the squad. Chamberlain said that the two have a lot of experience and leadership, and have done a great job motivating their teammates.
The 2012 Kane Boysâ€™ Golf team surpassed last yearâ€™s win total on their opening day.
Head coach Nathan Smithâ€™s squad defeated Smethport and Austin in their first match, and split their second match, defeating Port Allegany and losing to Ridgway. Smith, now in his 10th year as coach, has five golfers that earned letters last year returning this season. They are Ryan Greto, Dan Park, Austin Woolcock, Trace Gordon, and Austin Hoag.
Smith calls these five the â€ścore of the team.â€ť All of them spent many hours on the course over the summer and have improved over last year.
