CULVER â€” Culver Girls Academy graduated four starters from last seasonâ€™s sectional championship campaign.
Add to that the unique position of being a boarding school and the fact that players live hundreds of miles apart in the offseason, and itâ€™s taking the Lady Eagles awhile to start gelling.
CULVER â€” Culver Community head coach Tony Scheub recoils at the mention of a â€śrebuilding season.â€ť
Despite the graduation of the Lady Cavaliersâ€™ top five scorers from last seasonâ€™s groundbreaking 25-2 regional, Northern State Conference and Bi-County championship squad, Scheubâ€™s expectations for this yearâ€™s squad are high.
BREMEN â€” A teamâ€™s foundation is nearly always its senior class, and this yearâ€™s Bremen Lady Lions is no exception.
The Lions return a cast of four seniors in 5-10 forward Jenna Pfeiffer, 5-7 guard/ forward Kailee Feldman, 5-3 senior guard Shayna Graverson and 5-7 senior Allison Shorter as they get started on their 2011-12 campaign.
ARGOS â€” Argosâ€™ girls basketball team started preseason practice a bit late, thanks to the soccer teamâ€™s semistate appearance.
Despite the delay, the early returns â€” at least on the scoreboard â€” look promising.
The Dragons opened last week with victories at John Glenn and South Central, and hope to improve upon last seasonâ€™s 10-11 mark.
PLYMOUTH â€” After leading throughout its first two games of the season, Triton head coach Adam Heckaman was anxious to see how his young group would respond when down.
After falling behind 21-8 in the opening 12 and a half minutes at Plymouth, respond the Trojans did, going on a 15-0 second quarter-ending run to go up 23-21 at the half. They stretched that lead to 32-26 in the third frame and held on for the narrow 39-37 victory over the host Lady Pilgrims at The Rock Thursday.
