Coach: Zach Turner, eighth season (83-102)
2018-19 Record: 7-19 overall, 3-7 in CISAA
• Starters: Katherine Ashley, 5-8 junior forward (8.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.9 steals); Caroline Cady, 5-10 sophomore forward (8.2 points, 5.1 rebounds); Viktoria McCue, 5-4 senior guard (4.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.4 steals); Alexis Hailey, 5-9 freshman guard (1.4 points, 1.3 rebounds)
• Key reserves: Eseosa Imafidon; Millie Evans; Elle Kelada; Jackie Haynes
• The Dish: The Lions had a tough season last year in conference play, and limped to the finish line with four straight losses and a first-round playoff exit. This year they’ll need big seasons from Ashley, Cady and McCue as returning starters from that team. Cady and Ashley should be able to pick up the loss of all-conference 3-point marksman Maddie Crumpler, although Cady is their only outside shooter left. Hailey played some on a good Arborbrook Christian team as an eighth-grader and should blend in nicely. Imafidon is a 6-5 Nigerian exchange student, but she’s raw with little experience. She’ll help inside though. The CISAA is going to be top-heavy again with Charlotte Latin, Providence Day and Cannon all expected to be tough, but there is room for improvement.
