Coach’s comment: “This team is incredibly inexperienced but willing to learn. Our freshman and sophomores are a joy to coach and are improving every day, some may be a force in their junior and senior years. We will need consistent leadership and production from our seniors to be even moderately successful in the win-loss column this year. Allie Foley’s shooting, Emily Oppel’s rebounding and leadership, and Bre Prince’s on court direction will determine how well we do this season. Go Hawks!”
