Coach: Bill Kersten, 4th season.

Assistants: Giles Vaughan (JV), Daryl James (varsity assistant, freshmen), Tony Nocera (varsity assistant).

2011-12 record, accomplishments: 8-12; qualified for the state Class LL tournament.

Key losses to graduation: Morgan Gallagher, Erin Kersten and Ally LaPorte.

2012-13 captains: Juliana Fusco, Lauren MacDonald and Jessica Noteware.

Coach's outlook: "We are excited and hopeful the 2012-2013 season will be the one that we see the dividends from all of hard work the girls have put in rebuilding our girls' basketball program. We have made great strides the past three years in implementing our system and, after qualifying for the state tournament for the first time in many years last year, one of our goals this year is to make a return to the South-West Conference tournament.

" We will be led by our seniors -- returning point guard Juliana Fusco, a tenacious and fearless leader, who will be looked upon to score more for us this year; Jess Noteware, our leading scorer from a year ago, will return to anchor the shooting guard position; and Lauren MacDonald, our power forward will be relied on to be one of our top rebounders and to score down low.

"After seeing action as sophomores, center Emily Llerena and guard/forward Alexis Kersten will move into the starting lineup. Corinne Heymach and Maggie Grubb have been working hard and will be the first subs off the bench.

"The sophomore trio of guard Gigi Fusco, guard Lindsey Heaton and forward Olivia Seegers will provide support for our top seven. The rest of the sophomore class playing junior varsity and vying to move up to varsity are Brianna Benz, Stephanie Fleet, Melanie Horken, Kristi Osborne and Allison Noteware."
