The girl’s return a ton of experience this season including four starters from a team that made the area tournament. A fifth starter will eventually make her way to court as an in-jury is keeping her from being ready to go on opening night. Tawny Billy (5-8, Sr.) is a three-year starter and will play guard/forward. Last year she averaged 13 points, 7.0 re-bounds and 4.0 assists. Kenzli Warden (5-9, So.) surpassed all expectations last year as a freshman. Warden averaged 13 points, 8.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists. Katelyn LaFrance (5-8, Sr.) is another returning starter who averaged 7.0 points with 5.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds. Taylor Mansell (5-7, Sr.) leaves everything on the floor. As a junior she aver-aged 6.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists. Baylee Crawford (5-11, Sr.) is a solid post defender and a player who can give the team qualities minutes on the floor. Cadence Oli-ver (5-5, So.) has great energy and brings her hustle to the court. Serenity Jacoway (5-6, Fr.), Sami Schweighardt (5-7, Fr.), and Jadyn Wilson (5-5, Fr.) are three talented fresh-men expected to contribute this year. Schantel Evans (6-1, Jr.) will miss the start of the season, but when she returns look for her to make an immediate impact. SOMETHING TO WATCH – As a sophomore, Evans averaged 9.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 3.0 blocked shots. Her play can change the dynamic of the team.
