The Canton-Galva girls? basketball team projects to run a rotation at least seven players deep: back row (from left) Cayla Sommers, Tara Scott, Kaitlin Dailey, Kaitlyn Bressie; front row, Kara Paramore, Kimmy Voth and Allie Enns.
Having fought their way into the second round of the Class 2A sub-state tournament last season, the Canton-Galva girls? basketball team looks to build on the success of a 9-13 season. Coach Barry Fritz returns two senior starters in his fifth season at Canton-Galva.
Kaitlyn Bressie, a 5-foot-7 senior, returns to the point guard position. She averaged 10.3 points and four rebounds per game in 2007. Senior winger Allie Ens, 5-8, returns having averaged nine points and three rebounds.
Senior Kaitlin Dailey, junior Tara Scott and sophomore Cayla Sommers figure prominently in the team?s post-play, and sophomore Kimmy Voth will contribute from the perimeter.
Fritz said that guard play and outside shooting will be strengths, and that experience and depth will be weaknesses. Sophomore Kara Paramore and seven freshmen round out the roster.
?Several things are going to have to go our way for us to be successful,? Fritz said. ?We have to stay away from injury, foul trouble, sickness, turnovers and allowing offensive rebounds.?
The Eagles open at Herington Friday and face pre-season tournament games against Cunningham, Central Christian and Fairfield Dec. 8-13.
