Coach: Dan Schnurrenberger
2019-20 Record: 8-15 (2-6, AAC Red)
Returning Starters: Seniors – Emma Bartlett, Mya McNevin and Chelsie Wheeler
…First-Team All-League performer Emma Bartlett (7.9 ppg, 3.1 apg) leads a group of six letter winners back into the fold this season. “Emma’s been playing since she was a sophomore,” says coach Schnurrenberger. “I expect big things from her. Sophomore Zayda Creque (5.2 ppg) lettered as a freshman last year. She played at a high-level towards the end of the season. With the experience Chelsie (Wheeler), Mya (McNevin) and transfer guard Madison McCann bring to the team – they’ll play a huge role in the success we’ll have.”

Schnurrenberger says, “We’ll have to pick it up defensively. Speed teams up and become a difficult team to score on. Offensively, we’ll continue to play to our strengths. I do like the ability we have to shoot the ball. I also like how athletic of a team we have.”
