Team strengths: Team speed, athleticism and depth

Biggest challenge: “We will really struggle with taller teams, but I think our speed and athleticism will help us out,” head coach Lucas Beireis said.


Coach’s assessment: “I do think one of our strengths this year will be depth. I have nine girls I can put on the floor and have confidence in,” Beireis said. “We are a small team but we are very fast so we are looking to play a swarming full-court trap defense and push the ball as much as we can.”
