Coach Jamie Parish is in his fifth year and has a career record of 50-39 overall. His teams have made it to the Class A state tournament twice (third in 2005 and seventh last year) and they won the Big 8 Conference in 2004 and tied for first in 2006.
In last week's Plain Talk, he went over the starting four players – Annie Roche, Alicia Brown, Chelsea Gauer, and Krista Froke. To complete the starting lineup he indicates that Rachel Odens and Brittany Bye will be battling for the post position. "They bring different positives to the floor so could be playing in varying rotations during the year, depending on how they improve," he said. "Odens worked hard this past summer at becoming a more versatile player which should help her to contribute in the short wing and post areas."
Sara Kjose and Alexa Walker are returning perimeter players who got a taste of varsity basketball and the State tournament experience last season. "They both have potential to help us out at the wing positions," he concluded.
