COACH: Bill Kirk, second year.
LAST YEAR: The Lady Cardinals broke even and went 10-10, winning the 24th District title before losing to Bourbon County in the 12th Region tournament. Clark lost nine starters last year.
TOP RETURNEES: Sarah Warner, Katie Sharp, Kelsey Neumann, Ashtyn Abner, Becca Curtis and Kaitlyn Boldt. "(They) are good players with experience at the varsity level." Seniors Warner and Abner will serve as team captains.
EARLY START: Kirk said his team is in better shape heading into the season. "One of the keys this year is the improved overall fitness of the team," he said. "We started our conditioning program much earlier this year." He also hopes the emphasis on conditioning will pay off down the stretch. "The strengths are their team spirit and level of fitness which will come to the fore as the season progresses. This year these girls will be as full of running at the end of a game as they are at the start and will be better prepared for the rigors of postseason play."
