2016-17 Bishop Gorman Girls Basketball Capsule Preview

BISHOP GORMAN

Head coach: Kevin Nixon, first season

2015-16 record: 29-2 (8-0 Southwest, first)

Returning letter winners (starters): Five (one)

Top players: G/F Skylar Jackson (Sr.), G Samantha Coleman (Sr.), F Georgia Ohiaeri (So.), G Ciara Young (So.), G Shaira Young (So.), G Quinece Hatcher (So.)

Outlook: The Gaels certainly will have a different look this season.

Veteran coach Sheryl Krmpotich resigned after a long, successful run. Three four-year starters, all of them Division I signees, graduated.

Nixon, who once was an assistant coach for the girls squad, takes over and hopes to maintain the Gaels’ strong tradition.

“Over half of the team is either a sophomore or freshman,” Nixon said. “Not an abundance of experience, but we expect to be formidable competitors.”
