The Bullpups return four starters: Otiona Gildon (senior, post), Laura Stockton (sr., guard), Oona Harrington (sr., wing) and Lauren Weir (sr., wing). “We all go in with high hopes, but we have to get to that point in February where we’re playing our best basketball,” G-Prep coach Mike Arte said. … Central Valley is considered the team with the best chance to challenge G-Prep. The Bears bring back three starters – Madison Hovren (sr., p), Megan Dimmler (sr., g) and Courtney Carolan (sophomore, g). CV will feature the two best freshmen, twins Lacie and Lexie Hull, both 6-foot guards.

The rest played (junior varsity) last year so we have a steep learning curve.” … Ferris must replace four starters. Bria Bowton (jr., g) is the Saxons’ returning starter. “We are going to be a young team learning a new system, but we are going to get after our opponents and make them work and by the end of the season we hope to surprise some teams with our defense and transition game,” first-year coach Rob Servine said. … Shadle Park also must replace four starters. Shyla Carr (sr., g) represents the Highlanders’ experience. “Our girls really get along and are for each other,” first-year coach Tom Emory said. “In today’s day and age that’s a hard thing to find. We have set a realistic goal to win the 3A districts and make it out of regionals to state.” … Rogers snapped a 129-game league losing streak last year. It was the first time in coach Tyrone Hoard’s seven-year term at Rogers that his team won a league game. The Pirates return three starters.

Spokane brings back two starters – Jaidyn Lyman (soph., g) and Arianna Newcomb (sr., forward) – and eight lettermen. “This group of girls has a positive energy and chemistry,” Wildcats coach Melissa Allen said. “They have worked hard in the offseason and have the potential to compete with anyone.” … Jake Martyn takes over at North Central.
