21-22 Record: 17-10
The Lady Terriers had a good season last year, but are ready to build off of that success and have a deep playoff run this season. Head coach Jim Petree says that the experience they have coming back along with other players stepping up could make for a great season. “We have a chance to have a good year,” Petree said. “We return our top three scorers from last year. Two of these girls will be four-year starters and one will be a three-year starter. We will have some good size and we will need to develop our depth as only four girls saw a lot of playing time last year. We need to stay healthy and shoot it better this year.” One of the returning starters from last season is Kyla Megli (6-0, Sr.). She has been the team’s leading scorer for the past three years. Last year, she averaged 12.5 points and 4.6 rebounds as well as 68 blocked shots and 33 steals. “Coming back and having the leading scorers from the last year, I think we should be pretty successful this season,” Megli said. “We have a couple of freshmen who have come out and helped us out a lot. The offseason went a little differently than I had planned. I had surgery in April and spent most of the time healing and trying to get myself ready for the season. The team went to a couple of team camps and watching them play together and make things happen was really great. The closer to the season we would lift and shoot a lot while softball was in season.” Sydney Hampton (5-10, Sr.) is extremely athletic as she placed fourth in the 100 meters at the state track meet last year. She will guard the opponent’s best player regardless of size or position. She plays with great effort and is an outstanding leader. “I have really high hopes for this season,” Hampton stated. “We have a tough regular season schedule which should prepare us for playoffs. Our team is very close this year as we all enjoy playing together. We all know what we have to do to make the team better, and are always encouraging each other to do our best on and off the court.
During the off-season, we went to team camps and grew as a team. I shot this summer and did some other conditioning things to try and stay in shape.” Another contributor this year will be Berkeley Wright (5-6, Sr.). She led the team in three- pointers made as well as steals. She has the ability to create shots for herself and her teammates. She has been the team’s second-leading scorer for the past two years. Other members of the team that will look to play a role will be Cambria Hoye (5-7, Sr.), Nesoy-oo Powers (5-6, Sr.), Madi Mannering (6-1, Jr.), Ashlee Purvine (5-7, Jr.), Annmarie Cometsevah (5-5, Jr.), Kadenc Tate (5-6, Jr.), Khloe Doshier (5-8, So.), Abbi Crowdis (5-7, So.), Quinn London (5-9, So.), Rebecca Purvine (5-6, So.), Jorgen Stewart (5-8, Fr.), Channing Wright (5-4, Fr.), Jozlun Fite (5-9, Fr.), Jaelyn Koontz (5-7, Fr.), McCartney Lisle (5-4, Fr.), Makenzie McGuire (5-4, Fr.), and Macy Biddy (5-4, Fr.)
