PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Ferndale preview

FERNDALE GOLDEN EAGLES

Coach: Pat Foley

Last season: 14-10 (8-5 NWC) eliminated at the Class 3A Northwest District tournament

Players to watch: Ashley Honeycutt, (Jr., P), Carleigh New-man, (Sr., W), Brittany Lindsay, (Sr., P), Sarah Cicchitti, (Sr., G)

Outlook: Ferndale lost two games last year at the district tournament that would have sent the team to state for the first since 1988. They won’t let that happen again. Honeycutt scored 16.1 points a game last season and is one of a couple players in the conference who can average a double-double in the post. Newman has improved her shooting to the point that she might be the Golden Eagles’ best outside shooter. The bench might still be a concern, but that’s improved as well. A state berth could be their future.
