A young Trojan girls basketball team will look to be competitive and grow after an 8-12 season last year with a 2-7 league record.

Led by head coach Nathan Hiebert, Hillsboro will look to lean on Teegan Werth, who was an All Central Kansas League selection last year.

She averaged nearly 10 points a game with 3.5 rebounds and one assist per game last year.

“We still have a very young team this year, thankfully many of the underclassmen saw some playing time last year and have gained experience,” Hiebert said. “We will need to play well together, and girls will need to step into bigger roles. As a team, we will have to grow quickly to gain experience in order to be successful.”

Leading the charge, along with Werth, will be Eva Franz, Kinsey Kleiner, Jessica Saunders, Dani Klein, Addie Berens, and Tuesday Weisbeck.

Hesston, Haven and Nickerson should be Hillsboro’s toughest competition in the CKL.

Hillsboro will begin the season with a road trip to Belle Plaine on Friday, Nov. 30.
