Coach: Rusty Allen

Years, career record: 8, 123-67

Division: II

Last year: 20-5, 7-2 WBL (second)

Returning letterwinners (* returning starter): Megan Fisher* (Sr., 5-10, guard); Lexi Jacobs* (Jr., 5-7, guard); Katie Engle (So., 5-11, guard); Brooke Schlenker (Sr., 5-7, guard/post); Sarah Pothast (Jr., 6-1, post); Blasia Moyler (Sr., 5-7, guard/post)

Promising newcomers: Jess Davis (So., 5-7, guard)

Team outlook: The Redskins are talented at guard, including first-team all-WBL Megan Fisher, a senior, and all-WBL honorable mention pick Lexi Jacobs, a junior. Many of the players can shoot within the motion offense. “We have a lot of experience coming back from last year, even though we are relatively young at some positions,” coach Rusty Allen said. “The key for us this year is to take care of the basketball and how our post players develop over the season.”
