Coach: Da’Charles Battle, second season (6-15)
2018-19 Record: 6-15
• Starting Five: Jacquelyn DeJesse, 5-2 sophomore guard (8.9 points,5.4 rebounds, 2.1 steals); Olivia Boyce, 5-4 freshman guard (11.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals); Amaya Glenn, 5-4 freshman guard (10.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.4 steals); Bella Mendieta, 5-9 sophomore forward (6.2 points, 9.4 rebounds); Ann Elizabeth Nichols, 5-7 sophomore wing (7.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.7 steals)
• Newcomers: Kennedy Robinson, 5-10 junior forward; Abby Swinson, 6-0 freshman forward
• The Dish: The Cougars played last season with all freshmen and eighth-graders, but the talented young core is growing up together, which is a very good thing. Glenn and Boyce emerged as great scoring options last season, and Glenn can do a little of everything. Nichols and DeJesse are multi-dimensional players with a lot of skills. They’ll be leaned on even more this season with another year of experience under their belts. Mendieta will start in the post and give an inside presence to pair with Swinson, a Providence Day transfer. Robinson will be their most experienced player, and the United Faith transfer will give a scoring punch off the bench. Expect this team to have a turnaround season.
