Weston won the Connecticut Class M state title for the second time in the last four years in 2013, beating St. Joseph’s of Trumbull 9-8 in the title game.

How do the Trojans look heading into 2014?

For more, we check in with one of the top goaltenders in Connecticut, Loyola University-bound Grant Limone.

The 6-foot-3 Limone, now a senior, has been a mainstay as the final line of defense for Weston for three years. He is especially strong on clears and communicating with the defense.

playerperspectiveNow, here are Grant’s perspectives on the upcoming season.

What have you been doing to get ready for the season?
During the fall, I tried to play as much as possible.  I saw a lot of shots from teammates and our old assistant coach Josh Thornton.

I played at the UMass Fall Tournament with the CT Nuggets and I participated in the second Project 9.9 Camp.  During the winter, I play basketball so I can’t play as much lacrosse as I would like, but I play wall ball whenever I can.

How does your schedule look, what games are you looking forward to most, and who are some of your scrimmages against?
I don’t know too much about our schedule right now, but I’m looking forward to every game.  Obviously, I’m very excited about our league games against Newtown, New Fairfield and Joel Barlow, but I think I’m most looking forward to our out-of-league game against Staples.  hey beat us in a close game last year and I think it will be a great way to start our season this year.

What players on your team do you think will surprise some people this season?
I really don’t think there will be any surprises on our team this year.  We lost a few important seniors from last years team such as Sean Fumai, Grey Bradshaw-Mac, Mikey Smith, Richie Miller and a few role players.

And the young guys that are going to step up this year are the same that stepped up last year.  Sophomore JT Delara and Austin Drimal both started as freshmen and will be keys to our success this year.  And juniors Julian Bombart and Peter Lummis, who started as sophomores, will be huge.

Our senior class is anchored by myself and fellow captain Troy Flynn, who will be our most dynamic scorer this year.

What do you think the strength of your team will be this year?
Experience.  We have a lot of sophomores and juniors this year that started last year and played key roles in big games.  We’re not going to be deep, but the kids that are going to play for us this year all have experience.

How do you view the race in your league and who do you think ‘some of the contending teams will be?
I think the team to beat in our league this year is Newtown.  Its always a close race in the SWC between Weston, Newtown, Barlow and New Fairfield and this year will be no different.  Having said that, anything can happen in league play.
