Head coach: Sheryl Krmpotich, 18th season
2014-15 record: 24-6 (8-0 Southwest, first)
Returning letter winners (starters): Seven (four)
Top players: G Megan Jacobs (Sr.), F Madison Washington (Sr.), F/C Raychel Stanley (Sr.), G Skylar Jackson (Jr.)
Outlook: Few teams have three Division I commits, but the Gaels can boast that in Stanley (16 points, 9 rebounds per game), Washington (14 ppg, 9 rpg) and Jacobs (10 ppg, 6 assists per game).
Jackson (9 ppg, 5 rpg) also started last season and should contribute significantly.
“Having four returners back along with a bench will help the Lady Gaels this season,” Krmpotich said. “We love the uptempo style of play and will have the depth to do just that this year. We will be more uptempo but can also slow the game down as needed.
“The Lady Gaels have strength, versatility, speed, depth and players that can play a variety of spots on the court. We’re looking for this veteran squad to mix things up and finish the job.”
