Lady Jack hoops: A work in progress
The Lady Jacks basketball season is just starting, but there are still a number of pieces to put in place.
Consider this a puzzle for players ages 15-18.
The pieces already on the board are the 10 varsity players, first-year head coach Cory Medina, the inner-squad scrimmage and this past Tuesday the addition of a pair of jamboree games. Each outing adds a new piece.
Unfortunately on Saturday they lost to the junior varsity and on Tuesday lost both jamboree games against Ellensburg and East Valley. That has not deterred Medina, who knows this is a work in progress. This Thursday his squad will host Ephrata in their Central Washington Athletic Conference opener. The game will start at 5:45.
“We got beat both games and didn’t play well the first game, but looked better the second game,” Medina said. “So in a full game we will probably have a few good quarters and few bad ones, but when we put a whole game together people better watch out.”
He said the starting guards for Thursday will be 5-foot, 2-inch senior point guard Vanessa Sorto and 5-2 senior shooting guard Stephanie Mendoza. The two small forwards will be 5-10 junior Elizabeth Nielson and 5-11 junior Heidi Bishop, while the post will be 6-0 senior Joanna Santana.
The other guards are Siria Avila (Jr., 5-1), Kaitlin Ramsey (Jr., 5-2), Jessica Faw (Sr. 5-6) and Maribel Alejandres (Jr., 5-3). The other post is Maggie Buenrostro (Jr., 5-8).
