PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Meridian preview


Coach: Don McMains

Last season: 1-20 (0-13 NWC) eliminated in the of Class 1A North-west District Tournament.

Players to watch: Savannah Norris, (Sr., G), Terri Tigert, (Jr., G), Alexis Wolf, (So., F)

Outlook: Meridian understands that getting better is going to be a marathon and not a sprint, but the right pieces seem to be in a place for some major improvements. New coach Don McMains brings experi-ence to the position and he’s familiar with the players having coached many of them in middle school. Norris is a capable floor leader who averaged 5.4 points per game. Wolf is a good scorer for a sophomore, finishing second on the team in points per game at 8.4 a contest. What they lack in height they’ll make up for in athleticism.
