SIKESTON -- The Scott County Central Bravettes will be turning over a new leaf this upcoming season as they head into the 2008-09 season with very little varsity experience returning to the hardwood.
"We have a lot of inexperience," SCC head coach Semona Penrod said. "The kids that we do have on the team and have some varsity experience will have to be the one's we go to."
The only true returning starter for the Bravettes will be a senior in Markita Mosley. Mosley was a key factor for Scott Central when they clinched their fifth consecutive district title over the Oran Lady Eagles a year ago. Katie Ruedrich, who had considerable amounts of playing time on the varsity squad, will also be back for the Bravettes this year.
"We're kind of starting over," Penrod said. "I told them that we are going to go out there, play hard and try to have fun."
The Bravettes, who were 10-13 last season, lost a total of nine seniors. Penrod said that most of the new girls that are on the team have somewhere between very little to no varsity experience.
"We're just going to have to try and get better with every game we play," she said.
The Bravettes will begin their season at home against Naylor at 6 p.m. Dec. 1.
