Team strengths: Our girls are well-rounded athletes that have been working hard on strength and conditioning over the summer. They’ve put in a lot of hours preparing for the season. We’ve developed some good team chemistry through workouts and camps. Our team has solid depth, which makes our practices competitive.
Keys to a successful season: We need to keep everyone healthy and work to continually improve as a team every day. We hope to defend our conference title. St. Ansgar returns several key players and will be a team to watch out for. Central Springs and North Butler should also be competitive in the TIC-East.
