The Rambelles will host the Angelo State Invitational on Sept. 5 and 6 at the Junell Center.
Only three seniors out of the nine returners will take the court this year.
“Our new players are pretty talented to combine with our nine returners,” Head Coach Chuck Waddington said. “I think we should be able to keep the bar where we had it and add some excitement to the team.”
The team graduated five players last season, two of them All-American players.
“The girls spent a lot of time during off-season preparing for this season,” he said. “We had the best season that we have ever had last season, but I don’t think that satisfied these returning nine. They want to leave their own legacy.”
Senior Leah McWilliams said she sees positive things in the team’s future.
“It’s a very different team than last year’s team, but in the best way possible, and that’s exciting,” she said. “Our synergy is our biggest strength right now, and it plays into how well we do everything else.”
