Head coach: Diane Washington, first season
2017-18 record: 11-12 (6-4 3A Sunset/third)
Returning letter winners (starters): Six (two)
Outlook: Washington takes over a team that has qualified for the playoffs in five of the last six seasons.
Only two starters return from last year’s squad.
“The Lady Shields should be competitive this season despite us moving up to 4A,” Washington said.
