Hyde Girls Basketball
Diamond Brown, left, of Hyde and Alyssa Pearson of Richmond contend for a rebound during Richmondís 43-36 victory in a Western Class D semifinal.
|Coach: Richard Polgar, first year
Last year: 0-16
Returning starters: 4
Impact players: Katie Comeaux, sr., F; Kara Fischer, sr., PG; Carolyn
Moore, jr., G; Jailene Martinez, soph., F/C; Diamond Brown, fr., C;
Chloe Blaylock, fr., F; Shannon Ward, jr., G
Outlook: Polgar takes over a program that has struggled with only three
wins the last two years, but is optimistic. One reason is the return of
Fischer, the point guard who missed last year with a knee injury. She
settles everyone down. Hyde has a good mix of inside-outside potential,
allowing Polgar to play an aggressive style. Defense will be stressed.
