Outlook: The Mustangs return six starters from a squad that made its second straight state tournament appearance.

“The expectation is always a state championship in our program, and this year is no different,” said Guthrie. “We have a solid group of returners who are hungry for that championship. The girls have been working hard throughout the year. While we have a lot of returners, we also have a good mix of new players that will be great role players on the court.

“The team component of this group is really special. We have a lot of leaders that are able to set the tone for everyone in our program, both in the classroom and on the court. We look forward to a fun season with some hard-fought matches.”
