Talented redhead zoomed to No. 1 at first day of practice. Derry resident.

Alagero is a lefty tri-captain headed to Providence College. Chenard is a sophomore who has won several academic awards. “Julia has a great touch around the net. Laurie-Maude is an intelligent player with athleticism,” said coach Alan Hibino.

They won the first N.H. doubles state title in area history (boys and girls). They are a three-time Eagle-Tribune All-Star tandem. Burbine is our MVP. DePasquale is a Stonehill recruit who played No. 2 and 3 singles this year with a 15-1 overall record.
