Coach: Gail Wight (22nd year)

Last year’s record: 13-1, Western Class C semifinalists

Returning letter winners: Seniors — Megan Bonney (HB), Mariah Bundy (FB), T.J. Cowin (F), Desirae Cox (HB), Carin Donachie (MF), Lindsey James (MF), Sam Largess (HB), Amanda Wiley (F); Juniors — Jamie Steven (F), Emma Davis (HB), Kayla Merrill (MF).

Key losses: Brianna Douglass, Andrea Gunther, Kassandra Haines, Whitney Mills, Aly Steven.

Promising newcomers: Juniors — Samantha Tibbetts (G), Katelyn Sumner (F).

Outlook: The Rebels will have a huge hole to fill with the loss of Mills as the top player in the MVC last season, but what many opponents will soon find out is just how deep they really are. There are several players looking to be that No. 1 scoring option this season, and the rest of the team is falling into place nicely. Tibbetts will have the inauspicious task of following Douglass in the cage. Expect the Rebels to be in the hunt come playoff time — again.

“We should hold our own this year. It’s nice to have girls battling hard for positions on the team this year.”  — Coach Gail Wight
