After coming off our first trip to the Cascade Playoffs, finishing 6th place in conference, and obtaining the most wins in Evergreen's history, we are looking to keep the ball rolling. With a host a new faces, this years team will depend totally on " team effort."
We are looking to our senior captain Heather Hyde to set the tone for our young squad. She will be the only starter from last year. "Heather's energy on the boards and ability to get to the basket will definitely be key to our success."
Last year, Stephanie MacDuff played backup point guard. This year we are looking for MacDuff to step it up and run the show. "We are excited about her potential to lead, defend, and score from her position."
Sara Wallman, one of our most versatile players the last three years will continue to bring speed and flexibility. "We can put Wallman pretty much anywhere on the court and she will get the job done. This year we will need her to be aggressive from the outside offensively."
Rounding out our seniors is 5'9 Leslie Jacobson, a transfer from South Puget Sound Community College. " Leslie is strong and aggressive around the basket. Her presence will be notice down low."
Returning for her third season is junior Karen Cale. Karen has received our team defensive player reward the last two years. "We love Karen's defense. She gets right into the offensives face." She will set the tone for our defense.
Junior newcomer, 5'8 Dalia Gomez has the ability to score anywhere on the court. "We look for Dalia to play a solid role for this team this year."
We have two key sophomores we are counting on this season. Returner, Jenny Olson came out last year with a bang. "We couldn't ask Jenny to do more than what she did for us last year. Olson came in second place for Freshman of the Year last season. We look for Jenny to come out with even more confidence this year. Jenny will have the flexibility to work inside and on the perimeter.
