Rangeley Girls Basketball
Alyssa Peterson of Richmond goes to the ground to keep the ball in play during the Western Class D win over Rangeley.
|Coach: Heidi Deery (13th season)
Last season: 18-3, reached Western Class D final
Top returners: G Abby Abbott (Sr., 5-9), F/C Jenney Abbott (Sr., 5-11), G Tori Letarte (Jr., 5-6), G Seve Deery-DeRaps (So., 5-6), F Taylor Esty (So., 6-1), F Valerie Roy-Lessard (So., 5-8), G Maddison Egan (Fr., 5-6), G Shelby Elmes (Fr., 5-5), F Blayke Morin (Fr., 6-0)
Key newcomers: F Emma Gunic (Jr., 6-2), G Michaela Shorey (Fr., 5-5), F Celia Philbrick (8th, 5-8)
Outlook: The Lakers should again challenge Richmond for the Western Class D title. With Letarter, Deery-DeRaps, and Abby Abbott, they can run an offense with three point guards. They also have three 6-footers, and most opponents can’t come close to matching that height.
Coach’s comment: “They’re a bright group of girls, so there’s really no excuse for not making good decisions. We’re really focusing on conditioning, because we feel you make better decisions when you’re not as tired.”
