The Girls Basketball team is looking to have a great season this year. With a record of 8-16 last year, the Lady Devils plan on improving in all areas to have a winning season. “We need to learn to work together and trust each other. Also, we need to go hard no matter what time, score, and/ or opponent,” Coach Thompson said.

The team is very young this year. It has only six returning letter winners and is led by senior point guard Tiffany Ketchum and senior guard Natalie Esterly. The coaching staff has high expectations for sophomores Karlee Pezzano, Mackenzie Mason and Alli Davis. Juniors Taylor Siefke and Hannah Prasco will also be expected to perform well on both sides of the court.

Head coach, Jason Thompson, said their major goals for this season will be to hold opponents under 42 points and take care of the basketball. Their strengths are athleticism and quickness. Their weaknesses however, are that they are small and the rotation is not very deep. Their biggest opponent is themselves, and the Lady Blue Devils need to show up for every game and get the job done. Good luck ladies for a successful season!
