The Orcas Christian School Lady Saints return to the WIAA's Northwest 1B after a successful inaugural during the 2014-15 season, where the team saw a 14-8 record and a playoff appearance.
Head Coach Corey Wiscomb can sense the excitement surrounding his basketball team. With the return of his entire team, Wiscomb is optimistic as well after taking his young team to the playoffs last season for the first time in five years. And his core guys have been busy, spending time in the weight room, doing plyometrics to elevate athletic skills and attending summer camps gaining valuable experience playing against AAA teams. The camps paid off according to Wiscomb.
