2016-17 Faith Lutheran Girls Basketball Capsule Preview


Head coach: Jennifer Karner, 11th season

2015-16 record: 23-8 (11-3 Sunset, second)

Returning letter winners (starters): Eight (two)

Top players: G Madison Bocobo (Jr.), F/C Bryanna Neagle (Sr.)

Outlook: After winning the Division I-A state title last year, the Crusaders welcome back eight letter winners, but just two starters.

Bocobo (10.1 points, 4.5 assists per game) and Neagle (9.2 ppg, 6.6 rebounds per game) are expected to be the leaders on a team that should be competitive in its return to Class 4A.

“They have high hopes to compete to make it to playoffs, but they know this will be no cake walk,” Karner said. “They come into one of the toughest leagues in the state and expect to battle every game to reach their goal of making postseason play.”
