Easton Girls varsity basketball
Coach- Rachel Tomlinson
Preview courtesy of coach Tomlinson
2011/2012- Finished with a regular season record of 10-8. Lost to Shead in preliminary round game. First appearance in about 10 years that the Easton girls basketball team made a tourney appearance.
Expectations I expect leadership from the upperclassmen on and off the court this season. We have a young team this year, but an athletic group of young ladies
Strengths We should be able to use our speed up and down the court and our defense and free throwing shooting will be keys for us this season.
Challenges Easton girls have struggled with shooting in the past years, so if we can gain some confidence early in the season and continue to improve our shooting outside the paint, we should be a contender for play-offs this season. We also don’t have a lot of depth coming off the bench as most of them will be playing both jv and varsity games, so we will need to be conditioned and be able to stay out of foul trouble.
Key Players/Position returning starters sophomore Hannah Ferris in the post and Kylee Carter at point guard will provide some scoring opportunities. Four year starters Mindy Desmond and Carla Halvorson at the guard positions will provide game experience and much needed leadership on the floor which we lacked last season.
