The Lady Reds return the starting lineup intact from last years squad but can also expect large contributions to what coach Green calls a “deep and energetic bench”. He said, we are a deep team with many players who are expected to make major contributions this year. I believe that on any given night, you see players rising to the occasion. And, we have many who are capable”! With a load of experience returning for the Lady Reds, the squad will rely on its senior leaders to blend with a fantastic group of underclassmen to help propel the team’s success. With multiple underclassmen also returning from last years squad the teams experience will be its greatest asset this season as they hope to compete for a Huron league title. Leading the way on this year’s team are seniors Kensley Wallace, McKenna Beaton, Jessica Humes, Jayden Hall, MacKenzie Knight, and Wesleyann Williams. Junior Jillian Hill, sophomores Sydney Aunins, Sophia Kirk, Hailey Dennes, Maria Kirk, and Freshman Lauryn Obey. “I really feel like the sky is the limit for this group”, said Coach Green. “We have terrific senior leadership and we will be ready to compete!
