Head Coach Ron Hall stated that the team is optimistic on having a better year than last since "the girls team didn't get a win at all last year."
"This year, we are looking to see a lot of improvement over last year, not just with some wins, but with an overall improvement in the basketball program. We have a quick and athletic group this year that is also very young, and we are going to have to rely on our speed and quickness to pressure teams. We have a lot of areas we need to improve, but our goal this year is to get our young team to simply be competitive in our very tough basketball district and maybe even surprise a few teams along the way," said Hall.
No doubt Corrigan-Camden basketball fans are excited to get the season underway.
Good luck to Coach Hall, Coach Dixon and the teams for a winning season.
