RETURNING LETTER WINNERS:

#2 Rebecca Bautista Senior 5' 8" Guard

Coach's comments:
Becca played on the Junior Varsity team last season as their starting point guard. She earned the team's Best Defensive Player award. Becca is a solid defender with active hands and a keen mind. She has the ability to out-wit the opponent to create deflections or gather steals. Offensively, she is creative when she gets into the key to either score or pass. Her perimeter game has shown great improvement and her ball-handing and point guard instincts are a tremendous asset to our up-tempo style.

#10 Jennifer Enos Junior 5' 4" Point Guard

Coach's comments:
The Lady Herd's starting point guard played Varsity ball last season as a Freshman and showed deft ability to handle and shoot the ball. Over the off-season, Jen developed ball skills and consistency in her shot. She drew the attention of opposing coaches, one of whom called her, "unguardable." Other coaches compared her to the Lady Herd's all-time leading scorer and point guard Amanda Fitzgerald. In fact, the two became friends over the summer and Amanda tutored Jennifer in point guard skills and intangibles. Jennifer has a great, soft shooting touch and has learned how to finish around the basket. Her ability to push the ball ahead to set-up her teammates for scores is also a vital part of her game.

#20 Lidiya Kosachevich Junior  5' 9" Guard 

Coach's comments:
Lidiya is one of the programs fastest players. She started as a Freshman on the Junior Varsity team last season. Her abilities in the open floor make her an ideal fit into our system. Lidiya can score on the move or with an improved jump shot. She is tall for a guard allowing her to get into passing lanes and contain ball handlers. We will rely on Lidiya's abilities to get out in the open court and score in transition.

#34 Rebekah Focht Junior 5' 8" Guard 

Coach's comments:
Becky was the Junior Varsity team's Co-Most Valuable Player and leading scorer. She has a great perimeter shot and can score on the inside with a variety of moves. Becky is one of the team's best pure basketball players. She knows how to play the game and score and pass. Her offensive abilities from shooting to ball-handling make her a vital component to the Varsity team. She provides versatility to the team because she can play a forward or a guard, both creating mismatches for the opponent. During the off-season, she committed to a rigorous training program to ready herself for the Varsity level.

#43 Shanice Brown Sophomore  6' 3" Center

Coach's comments:
Shanice begins her Varsity career immediately as a Freshman. Her size, strength, soft hands, and skills are so advanced for her age that made it an easy decision to bring her up so early. She has an infectious sense of humor and personality. Shanice fit in with her teammates upon their first meeting. We look to Shanice to learn quickly and steadily learn the Varsity game to contribute points, rebounds and defense.

#45 Heather Gale Senior  6' 0" Center

Coach's comments:
Heather played the past two seasons on the Junior Varsity team where she developed her post player skills. She dedicated herself over the summer to improve her post moves. Heather will push our senior post players, making them better with her work ethic and effort. Her dedication to the team and her focus are two of Heather's most impressive qualities. We expect Heather to lead by example, improve with determination, and inspire her teammates.
