2016-17 Pahrump Valley Girls Basketball Capsule Preview


Head coach: Bob Hopkins, 14th season

2015-16 record: 2-16 (0-14 Sunset, eighth)

Returning letter winners (starters): Nine (four)

Outlook: Hopkins, who had a highly-successful run as the Trojans’ coach from 1999-2008, returns for his third-stint guiding the team.

Nine letter winners return for Pahrump, which is starving for success on the varsity level and has nine seniors.

“These girls went undefeated when they were freshmen,” Hopkins said. “The biggest obstacle we have is that is the last time they won at any level. We know we have a lot of work in front of us.

“We are deep at a lot of positions. Several of the girls put in a lot of time in the gym this summer, shooting, and so far in practice it looks to have paid off. As a coaching staff, we look to get the program back where it was from 1999-2008 where we made it to the state tournament seven of nine years.”
