Coach: Wally Winslow

How many seniors are on the roster? We have three seniors on the roster: Shannon Reny, Khalyn Hageness and Brooklyn Rainer.

Who do you consider to be team-leaders? Our team leaders are Shannon Reny and Jayden Winslow. They have been proven their leadership during the last two seasons with outstanding performances on the court and have set a great example with their dedication to basketball in the off season.

Who are your strongest competitors and why? The best teams in the conference will be Columbia Falls — they have a rich tradition and have a group of talented and athletic girls — and Browning, which has depth and talent.

Is the conference a strong one? The Northwest A has done well the last few years at the state tournament. I am not sure how the rest of the class A teams in the state compare.

What excites you most about the coming season? Our team returns a group of girls that played lots of varsity minutes last year. Shannon Reny has been All Conference and All State the last two seasons and has committed to play college basketball at Montana State University-Billings, Jayden Winslow has been All Conference the last two seasons, Khalyn Hageness was a starter last season. Brooklyn Rainer, Alli Collins, Sammee Bradeen, Emma Gruber, Linsey Walker, Samantha Miller, Syd Gier, McKenzie Proffitt and Sheyla Gallagher will be key contributors to the success of the varsity program.

What is your biggest challenge? To get healthy and stay healthy throughout the season.
