Comments About Team or Upcoming Season:
Junior Ellie Johnson has lettered on the varsity the past three years, earned All Conference, and finished 26th at State. Junior Jenna Stetz has lettered two years and played in 3 Section Tournaments. Ellie and Jenna will be this year’s Captains and team leaders. There are nine players who could step up and fill varsity spots. Emma Seter and Anna Stachowski are sophomores who have an experience advantage in the group. All of these girls have a great attitude with great enthusiasm. It should be a fun year to see how they progress by the end of the season.
Top Teams in Section & Conference:
Defending Section Champ Park Christian looks to be the favorite in Section 6A. Perham is the favorite in the HOL, with Barnesville, Pelican Rapids and Hawley in pursuit.
