Janae Rempel / Free PressThe Canton-Galva girls? basketball team will look to build on last year?s 6-16 season under the direction of second-year coach Kelly Unruh.

The Eagles return three starters from last year?s squad: senior Keana Haydon (5-7) and junior Zoe Unruh (5-9) at guard, and junior Cassidy Enns (6-0) in the post position.

Enns averaged 12.9 points per game last year and had 9 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game. Haydon contributed 3.7 points, 3 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game, while Unruh had per-game averages of 3.9 points and 3.6 rebounds.

Also returning are senior post Caley Johnson (5-11) and junior guard Anna Wesley (5-7).

Johnson averaged 1.6 points and 2.3 rebounds per game last season, while Wesley averaged 0.9 points, 2 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game.

?Defense will continue to be our biggest strength,? Unruh said. ?Our biggest weakness will be on the offensive end, putting the ball in the basket.?

The Eagles shot 31 percent from the field last season.

The Eagles will open the season at Elyria Christian Friday. Their home-opener will be Dec. 16 against Centre.
