Palo Verde Capsule Preview

Coach: Greg Siqueiros (first year)

2007 record: 16-6 (13-1 Northwest)

Returning letterwinners: Eight

Returning starters: Five

Top players: MB Nicole Gneiting (Sr.); OH Katrina Marcy (Sr.); OH Tianna Gadbaw (Sr.); S Tori Lounsbery (Jr.)

Outlook: The Panthers finished tied with Centennial atop the Northwest Division last season, and with five starters back, should again contend for the league title. The Panthers have good height, and should be among the Sunset Region’s top teams. Siqueiros expects Gneiting, a second team All-Northwest League pick a year ago, to lead the team and help keep up the intensity.
