PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Burlington-Edison preview

BURLINGTON-EDISON TIGERS

Coach: Mike Buckholz

Last season: 19-7 (11-2 NWC) eliminated in the Class 2A state tournament consolation round

Players to watch: Keri Arendse, (Sr., G) Sarah Stewart, (Sr., P), Sarah Berentson (Sr., G)

Outlook: Burlington-Edison should be considered among the handful of teams capable of winning a confer-ence title this season. Arendse was a first-team all-conference point guard last season who averaged 15.8 points per game. With her running the show, the Tigers will always have a chance. Stewart is a very good player in the middle and adds another dimension to the team. The only real weakness could be at forward, where the Tigers are working in some inexperienced players, but that’s nit-picking.
