22 turn out for girls basketball
There are 22 girls turned out this year for the Prairie High School girls basketball team.Jennifer Enneking goes for a lay-up during the girls scrimmage Saturday.
The team starts their season this weekend with a trip to southern Idaho to play Garden Valley and Greenleaf, a pair of perennial state tournament qualifiers.
Their first home game isnít until Nov. 29 when they host Grangeville.
Coach Steve Wilson says the usual suspects will be tough again this year with Lapwai having lost their big girls to graduation but returning everyone else. Kendrick brings back nearly everyone and adds a freshman who is the younger sister of one of their stars. Wilson also says Genesee will be tough again.
Wilson feels Prairie should be competitive although they start the season without Tiffany Schaeffer for the second straight season as she recovers from a knee injury. She is expected back in mid to late December.
In addition to Schaeffer, returning varsity regulars are Jennifer Enneking, Kaylee Uhlenkott and Sarah Arnzen. Players who spent time on both varsity and JV last year are Kim Schaeffer, Kara Guyer and Kristi Poxleitner. Christa Wilson and Hilaree VanderPas will also be full-time varsity players while Amber Holthaus and Mary Shears will see action on both the varsity and JV squads this year.
On the JV squad this year for new coach Dustin Behler, who moved up from the C team position last year, in addition to Shears and Holthaus are Justina Zigler, NaTosha Schaeffer, Francesca Johnson, Kayla Johnson, Alena Hoene, Betty Jane Clark, Casey Bruegeman, Shelby Duman, Meghan Bruner, Haileigh Schmidt and Kendra Dinning.
