"To be honest, I expect to make the region this year," he said. "I don't think we're quite to the same level that a Mercer County, Lincoln County or Casey County is, but I don't think we're at the bottom of the barrel, and I think we can be a player in the region by the end of the season."
Players to watch
Myers said junior Hannah Harley and sophomore Shavon Majors have the potential to stand out. Majors was the team's leading scorer before missing half the season with a knee injury.
"Hannah has seen varsity time. The other two juniors (Vaughn Smith and Brooke Ransdell) saw spot time at the most this season," Myers said.
Keys to season
The Bulldogs averaged 41 points a game last season, but Myers said miscues could prevent them from hitting that average again, especially with an inexperienced backcourt.
"Our key to the season is cutting down on turnovers. Our guard play is critical, the guards must make good decisions," Myers said.
Myers said getting his two seniors back on the court is going to be key for the team to have any kind of success.
"Our biggest concern is injuries. We have two senior post players not able to practice at the moment," he said. "Paisley Carey is coming off of ACL surgery. We hope to have her back in practice by mid-December. Beth Miller has a broken ankle and it may be mid-January before she returns to the practice floor. Both girls were expected to be major contributors this season. "
Myers said freshman Taylor Sanders has shown promise in practice. She's one of several young players who cold get significant minutes.
"The younger girls, we're really going to rely on," he said. "We could play a few sophomores at guard."
