AUBURN RIVERSIDE RAVENS:
• COACH: Paul Lewis, seventh year.
• LAST YEAR: 5-10-2, seventh in the SPSL North 3A.
•TOP RETURNERS: Danielle Robinson, defender, senior (second-team All-SPSL North 4A); Carly Morgan, midfielder/forward, senior (second-team All-SPSL North 4A); Kayla Clarke, goalkeeper, senior (second-team All-SPSL North 4A); Ashley Enlow, forward, junior; Lauren Crimi, defender, sophomore; Katie Baber, midfielder, junior; and Emmi Seelbach, midfielder/defender, sophomore.
• OUTLOOK: According to coach Paul Lewis, who led the team to state appearances in 2005, 2006 and 2007, this could be the year for the Ravens.
“This is a coming out party year for us, or I guess a coming back out party,” he said. Last year the team struggled with the loss of 10 seniors from the 2009 team and failed to make the postseason for the first time in Lewis’ tenure.
“This year those players are very talented, have grown up and are performing,” Lewis said. “There is a strong belief on this team that they will restore tradition. They are afraid of no one, even though the top two teams in the state from last year are in our division (Kentwood and Tahoma).”
