Coach: Vince Halliday
Years, career record: 10, 112-91
Last year: 15-9, 8-6 TRAC (fourth)
Returning letterwinners: Kierre James (Sr., 5-5, point guard); Destiny McDonald (So. 5-6, guard); Taylor Washington (So., 5-6, guard); Taja Oglesbee (So., 5-8, forward)
Promising newcomers: Ajohlon Bullock (Jr., 5-9, center); Missy Jackson (Jr., 5-9, center)
Team outlook: The Spartans will certainly miss their two 1,000-point scorers from last year, both of whom moved on to play basketball at the next level. Their biggest question will be how a young squad responds.
Lima Senior has three sophomores and two freshmen in its rotation. Still, it has good team speed and guard play, and coach Vince Halliday likes the way they’re sharing the ball so far.
“If we continue to share the ball, play hard at all times and catch a few breaks, I feel we can stay in the top half of our league,” Halliday said.
Halliday sees Notre Dame Academy and Toledo Whitmer as the teams to beat in the Three Rivers Athletic Conference.
