Coach: David Hoffman

Years, career record: 35, 440-310

Division: III

Last year: 12-12, 4-4 NWC (fifth)

Returning letterwinners (* returning starter): Devyn Carder* (Jr., 5-5, guard); Sarah Miller* (Jr., 5-6, forward); Macy Wallace (Jr., 5-6, guard); Mikayla Bennett (Jr., 5-4, guard)

Team outlook: The Wildcats may not be as tall as some competitors, but they’re fiercely aggressive on defense. “The Ladycats will still utilize the press and aggressive play to force an uptempo game by utilizing a pressing and trapping defense,” said coach David Hoffman, who guides Jefferson for his 35th season this year.
