Coach: Brian Schroeder

Years, career record: 3, 52-21

Division: III

Last year: 23-3, 8-0 NWC (champs), 7-0 PCL (champs)

Returning letterwinners (* returning starter): Jade Clement* (Sr., 5-4, guard); Grace Schroeder* (Sr., 5-7, guard); Hallie Malsam* (Sr., 5-9, forward); Macy McCluer (Sr., 5-5, guard); Paige Bellman* (Jr., 6-0, forward); Carlee McCluer (Jr., 5-8, guard)

Promising newcomers: Danielle Caudill (Sr., 5-6, guard); Jenny Ellebrock (Sr., 5-5, guard); Lauren Birkemeier (Jr., 5-11, forward); Lauren Schroeder (Jr., 5-6, guard); Rylee Sybert (So., 5-8, guard)

Team outlook: The Bulldogs lost five seniors, but they still have three-year letterwinner Jade Clement, the Northwest Conference player of the year, and her 16.3 points per game last year on the roster. “If we continue to work hard in practice at improving on the defensive end, becoming more efficient on offense and establishing good chemistry, we hope to compete in the NWC and PCL.”
