Senior leadership and depth

Question Marks:

We lost 3,000 points to graduation… who will step up and score?

Outlook: “We have seniors that have experience, and we have skilled, dedicated younger girls who don’t have the experience, but have a great opportunity to step up this season and contribute. Our team chemistry is good, which is essential because we have a lot of hard work to do this season in a very tough conference,” said deMarteleire.
