Multiple Teams · High school basketball: Girls season preview

-Russell Hedges


2015-16 record: 26-9 overall; 9-1 District 1-4A, champion

Returning All-Parish: Emily Ward, So. (first team)
Returning All-District 1-4A: Ward (first team)

Outlook: The 5-11 Ward, who averaged 13.1 points and 8.0 rebounds, is the lone returning starter for a team that lost to eventual state runner-up Rayne in the second round of the playoffs. All-Parish MVP Brandi Harris will be hard to replace along with the other seniors. The Lady Tigers have no projected senior starters. Ward, freshmen Qua Chambers and Dana Wainwright, and sophomore Abbie Wynn are projected starters along with either sophomore Morgan Bradford or junior Kaitlin Bratten. Wynn got a lot of playing time of the bench last season. Chambers led Benton Middle to the parish eighth-grade title last season. It may take some time for the newcomers to develop and get used to the pace of high school ball, but the potential is there for another outstanding season.
