The Lady Vikings start a fresh year with  new Varsity Coach Gregg Sasan, who is a familiar face on the court having coached the boys basketball team for 10 years and the current volleyball coach.

Coach Sasan said he is really just getting to know his new players, but says he likes “the offense to run, go through their plays and take one game at a time.”

Lisa Gage is coaching the junior varsity squad.

The varsity team includes seniors Lana Bronn, Kirsten Fowler, Aliviah Garcia, Jordan McGee and Tara O'Neill with juniors Bella Nigretto, Shelbi Rogers and Alicia Susol and sophomores Hannah Brunner-Gaydos and Kilee Rogers.

The Vikings launched the season off in fine style with a 57-28 win over the Bush Academy Blazers in the first season contest Nov. 30. The ladies dominated the entire game with top scoring by Nigretto with 15 points, Kilee with 10 points, Shelbi and Susol both with 8 points. On Dec. 7, they beat Friday Harbor, 44-25.
