PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Squalicum Storm

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDDecember 7, 2013 

SQUALICUM

STORM

Coach: Mark Wright

Last year: Finished last year tied for 10th in the NWC with a 3-9 conference record, and a 4-16 record overall. ... Despite the team's struggles at the onset of the season, losing its first nine games, the Storm rebounded to win four of its final 11 games.

Players to watch: Meghan Lowry (Sr., Wing); Kamea Pino (So., guard); Sam Star (Jr., post)

Outlook: The development of the team is there, Squalicum coach Mark Wright said. The only thing now that remains to be seen is whether or not the Storm can learn to limit its turnovers and prevent teams from getting extra possessions. "We have turned the ball over in legendary fashion in the past few years," said Wright, adding that his team has shown improvement in the early part of this season, limiting the mental mistakes. In particular, Wright is looking to senior wing Meghan Lowry to spark an offense that only scored 39.1 points per game this season. "We're going to try to be a little more dynamic on the offensive side of the ball," he said. Lowry averaged a team-high 7.9 points per game, and will be the focal point of the Storm attack.
