Coach: Mark Gregory

Years, career record: First year

Division: IV

Last year: 17-5, 7-1 NWC (second)

Returning letterwinners (* returning starter): Paige Motycka (Jr., 5-8, guard/forward), Lyvia Black (Jr., 5-5, guard); Ally McCoy (Jr., 5-9, forward)

Promising newcomers: Ashley Dealey (Sr., 5-8, center/forward); Alyssa Gent (Jr., 5-6, guard); Emma Bowen (So., 5-8, center/forward); Lizzie Bowen (So., 5-7, guard/forward); Avery McCoy (So., 5-9, guard/forward)

Team outlook: The Knights are starting over this year, after 25-year coach Greg Rickard retired and five key seniors retired. The cupboard isn’t bare for new coach Mark Gregory, a longtime assistant to Rickard, though, as second-team all-NWC selection Paige Motycka is back for her junior year.
