Coach's outlook: "The 2009-2010 season is a new start for the New Milford High girls' basketball program. Although we are on building from scratch, with a new system of play and a new attitude every time we step on the court, the girls have been making great strides learning our system and are very excited to get started. As is the case anytime you have many new players trying to blend their talents together and also learning many new things, there will be a learning curve that we all will need to adjust to. The South-West Conference is once again very good this year, with many of last year's top teams returning most, if not all, of their starters. We are also looking forward to playing in the 2009 girls' Greater Danbury Holiday Festival at Western Connecticut State University's O'Neill Center during the holidays." Key returning players are seniors Kaitlyn Flynn, Kaitlin Kisling and Maria Ortiz and juniors Nicole Durosko, Caroline Habjan and Melissa Judson. Key newcomers are juniors Claire Curtis, Kelsey Heaton and Kelsey Matthews, and sophomores Morgan Gallagher, Erin Kersten, Allyson LaPorte, Tara Larkin, Arieta Lekaj and Jane Thompson.
