Spartan girls' basketball
Coach: Rico Brogna, 1st season.
2011-12 record, accomplishments: 13-7; qualified for state class `S' tournament advanced to the second round.
Coach's outlook: "We have a nice mix of veterans and youth on this year's varsity team. We are fortunate to have excellent senior captain leadership because we will have some sophomores and frosh playing extended and meaningful minutes during varsity games.
"The team is working hard to become a well-conditioned, four-quarter team; and the girls have been very receptive buying in to the new system. It might take some time to get it all together but the process is what we are focusing on, not so much the results.
"The plan is to improve daily and make each practice as valuable as the games in order to establish the program's standards. Our seniors are doing a wonderful job of being coachable, working hard and leading. I am very proud of them and their outstanding effort in practice."
Seniors: Kate DeWitte, Brooke Parker and Bridget McCarthy.
Freshmen: Samantha Moravsky and Caroline Kelly.
