Stillwater Girls Basketball Preview

stillwater warriorStillwater head coach Matthew LeMoyne enters his second year at the helm of the Warriors and feels his squad is on the right track. “The transition into year two has been a bit smoother for everyone involved.  The girls know what we value as a team and the areas we need to work on.”

This year LeMoyne will look for leadership from a trio of returning players in sophomore Marley Mueller, junior Brooke Pickett and senior Amiya Jennings.  Mueller led the team in scoring a year ago as a freshman.

“I’ve liked our team speed and athleticism thus far”, said LeMoyne.  “We’re not blessed with a ton of height, but we’re athletic in the backcourt and have a big that can score.”

As for the Warriors identity this season LeMoyne offered, “We are going to have to manufacture points at the free throw line and in transition.  Scoring off turnovers is going to be another facet of the game in which we need to excel.”

LeMoyne continued, “Keeping teams under 40 points is going to be huge for us if we’re going to have success this year.”

The head coach pointed to Cambridge, Tamarac and Hoosic Valley as top contenders for the league title, and while a Wasaren crown may be out of reach this season for the Warriors they’ll pin their hopes on an athletic backcourt, turning opponents over and an inside presence in Mueller to put numbers in the win column.
