“I think that ranking is based on our history and not necessarily our current team since no one really knows who we have. That’s okay. We’re excited just to be able to play and we’re really looking forward to getting started,” said Vachon.

Anne Simon is poised to be one of UMaine’s leaders this winter, and Vachon said she’s impressed with the junior guard’s off-season.

“This year I think she really feels confident as a leader. She’s been playing really well. She had a great summer over with Luxembourg with the national team winning MVP of the Small Countries Tournament. She’s doing really well,” said Vachon.
