What to expect: The Ramblers have a solid core of returning players and a mix of new players. They have high expectations again this year, and expect to compete well in the MVC. Early on, the focus will be on finding combinations that work well together, developing confidence and filling supporting roles. Katie Perkins will be a solid presence in the backfield, and Winthrop has plenty of skill in the front with Kinli DiBiase, Moriah Hajduk and Breonna Feeney. Once the players get a feel for each other in game situations, the team expects to be solid come October.
