Sydney Scales

When did you first begin playing the sport?

Kindergarten.

Do you want to play this sport in college?

No.

Are you committed for this sport?

No.

Who was a prominent coach in your sports career? Why?

My dad. He helped me to become the best athlete possible and to always work hard to be the best I can be.

What other activities/clubs are you involved in?

Field hockey, lacrosse and Spanish club.

How do you feel going into this season?

I feel very confident coming off of a successful season last year. We have a lot of returners and some new underclassmen coming up who are great athletes, so I am excited to see what we can accomplish this year.

What are some goals set for the team this coming season?/How do you plan to achieve these goals?

I think the goal this season is to go farther in tournament than last year and hopefully win more games than last year. We set the bar high last season, so we need to continue to raise it this season.

Who are some big opponents/rivals? Why?

Some of our biggest opponents this year will be Braintree, Wellesley, and Natick. These teams have been dominant over the past few seasons and in order to compete at the highest level we need to be able to compete with and hopefully beat these teams.

Do you think the team will make tournament/post season? How far do you think you’ll make it?

It’s always our first goal to win 10 games in order to make tournament. After losing second round in tournament last year after a great season, we hope to make it even further this year. We definitely have the potential to go far, but we need to put in the work to make it happen.
