► Sister act, take three: Yet again Acton-Boxborough Regional will be led by a pair of talented sisters. Eleana Cardarelli (committed to Providence) is finally a senior, and Leah Cardarelli is now a junior. The two combined for 46 goals and 31 assists last year. The Colonials have won three of the last six Division 1 state titles.
► Changes at Weston: After advancing to the Division 1 North finals against Acton-Boxborough last fall, the Wildcats have moved down to Division 2 this season. Even if they struggle while breaking in a large group of underclassmen, the Wildcats should be a threat come tournament time. Junior Elizabeth Dennehy is worth the price of admission.
