The Wrens have plenty of speed on the 2021 squad, but low numbers will be a challenge.

Head coach: Daimen LaFave

Assistant coaches: Wayne Sowada

Returning starters: Abbie Resberg and Janae Sjodin

New Faces: Brooke Kent, Katie Line, Frenchie Klimek and Liberty Bilges

Team Strengths: Team speed, according to coach Daimen LaFave.


Biggest Challenge: "It's a numbers game and we are short on numbers," LaFave said.

Coach's assessment

"We have been here before," LaFave said. "The numbers come in waves and right now we are at low tide. There are 10 kids out for basketball in grades 9-12, and we are young. Five do have some varsity experience, so the biggest challenge will be to get the new additions on the same page."
