SCOTT CITY -- Coming off of their first-ever Class 3 quarterfinal appearance, the Scott City Lady Rams will look to return to the post-season with intentions of possibly getting a little farther.
Returning four key players from their 23-7 season a year ago, the Lady Rams will also rely on several newcomers to help fill the void left by graduating seniors Melanie Lacey and Stacey Heisserer.
"We are going to be 10 (players) deep and we will get after people," Scott City coach Ricky Keller said. "I feel that this year's team is a lot quicker and feel that we will have another good season. They are all hard workers and come to take care of business every day at practice."
Leading the charge for the Lady Rams will be 6-2 senior Katie Hogan.
In just her junior year, the 6-2 Hogan passed the 1,000-point mark in her Scott City career on Jan. 13 against Delta. As one of the more dominant forces under the basket and consistent from behind the arc, Hogan led the Lady Rams with 17 points, 12 rebounds and 6 blocks a game.
Joining Hogan will be returners Katie Rhymer, Andrea Gray and Brittany Kiefer.
Newcomers include Alicia Kern, Jessica Boswell, Lyndsie Robert, Lindsey Rendleman, Alexis Spriggs and Tana Tetley.
