|Coach: Scott Wing (3rd season)
Last season: 9-9
Top returners: F Melissa Brassard (Sr., 5-7), G Daisy Poole (Sr., 5-5), G Kylie Kemp (Jr., 5-6), G Brianna Hicks (Sr., 5-5), F Amanda Anair (Jr., 5-7), F Kristen Kemp (Jr., 5-8), G Paxton Lessard (Jr., 5-5)
Key newcomers: G Caroline Bonenfant (So., 5-4), F Jenna Davies (So., 5-7), F Haley West (Fr., 5-7), G Sidney Wilson (Fr., 5-3), Sierra Spencer (Sr., 5-7), G Danielle Bumann (Sr., 5-4), G Ashley Coulombe (Jr., 5-3)
Outlook: The big news at Monmouth this season is the return of Spencer, Bumann and Coulombe, each of whom missed last year with knee injuries. They’ll bolster the depth or in some cases start. Kylie Kemp is a proven scorer and rebounder while Poole and Brassard are also experienced players. If the Mustangs can rebound they’ll contend in the MVC this season
Coach’s comment: “We have a lot more depth. We hope to make it to the Civic Cneter this year.”
