Odds and ends: Last year was the Reggies’ first season with a girls team and they jumped right into varsity play. ... New coach Dan Leone was an assistant to Bo Pham last year. He graduated from Methuen High in 2004 where he played football and did track and field. He also played one season of soccer at the University of New England ... Kiana Lara (3 goals last year) moved to Florida. ... Last year’s goalie Jasmine Reynoso has moved to forward. ... Yanibel and Julissa Marinez

are sisters.

Coach Dan Leone (1st year): “Desiray (Caracoglia) and Coral (Robinson) are really intelligent and will force mistakes. Desiray, once she sees the ball, it’s hers. Coral makes smart passes. She can already set up the offense from the defense.”
