The 2012-13 girls' basketball season got underway this week for several local teams, while several others, make their debuts next week.
The following is a capsule look for the local girls' teams:
Brethren Christian Warriors
Head coach: Jeff Wallace (5th year)
2011-12 record: 19-10
2012 league finish: 6-5 (third)
2012 CIF results: Reached second round Division 5-AA playoffs.
Returning starters: None.
The roster: Abby Luce, Sr.; Annie Huie, Sr.; Jessica Wayland, Sr.: Courtney Okwudibonye, Jr.; Grace Okwudibonye, Jr.; Lisa Hobson, Soph.; Bria Gamble, Fr.; Cammy Mahoney, Fr.; Chelsea De La Cruz, Fr.; Hannah Montano, Fr.; Kendall Strabala, Fr.; Sierra Whitmire, Fr.
Team notes: The Warriors, without any returning starters from last year's playoff team, are starting from scratch. The team last year won the Max Preps Holiday Classic in Palm Springs, and finished third at the Orangewood Academy tournament. The Warriors are entered in both tournaments next month (December). BC also will add two transfer students to its roster in February.
Coach's outlook: "This is the ultimate example of a rebuilding year, if there ever was one," Wallace said. "We've lost our first eight players from last year's depth chart."
Season opener: Monday vs. Tarbut V'Torah.
Head coach: Dan Wiley (5th year; 101-20)
2011-12 record: 23-4
2012 league finish: 9-1 (co-champion)
2012 CIF results: Reached Division 1-AA quarterfinals
