Starting her sixth season (in 2013) with the OJC Rattlers, Head Coach Melissa Anderson said the team is welcoming back five returning sophomores and nine incoming freshman.
“We lost a big group of sophomores from the 2012 season, but couldn’t have found better freshman to replace them. The sophomores have taken the freshman under their wing and are stepping up to the challenge of being leaders on the team and making an impact on the court,” said Anderson.
After preseason camp wrapped up, Anderson said she felt the girls were starting to mesh very well, which is a key aspect for any team’s success.
“We have a very spunky and outgoing team; they are competitive and have a hunger to win. Although we are somewhat undersized, we have girls that can jump and put the ball down, as well as some that can play amazing defense. I am looking for this team to be scrappy and play extremely smart,” said Anderson.
