Returning letter winners (starters): Five (three)

Top players: G Abbie Barnard (Sr.), F Becca Bramlage (Jr.), C Kourtney Metzger (Jr.)

Metzger, a 6-foot-5-inch center, averaged 9.4 ppg and 6.5 rpg last year and is an imposing presence in the post.

“We will be a rather young team,” Creer said. “We are looking to improve our record from last year and become a higher seed in the Sunrise League. We are excited for the season to start.”
