We begin the girls previews by looking at the ULA Girls D-II South Conference. Copper Hills, Lehi, Pleasant Grove, Timpanogos, Waterford and West Jordan will all be competing for playoff spots come May.
Copper Hills Grizzlies
Copper Hills has been moved to D-II after a tough 2013 season. The new division will give the Grizzlies a much needed boost to their morale as they look to make the playoffs this season.
Lehi PioneersAfter a tough loss to American Fork in the 2013 Championship game, the Pioneers motivation is high to return to the title game and claim the trophy. 2013 First Team All-State Attack Megan Freeman and Laramie Leaver and Nicole Kirkham will ready to lead the team to victory.
“Addie Pearson, Brynie Cox, Lia Smith, Aubree Gerber and Shea Munger all return after a solid sophomore showing,” said Lehi Head Coach Greg Freeman. “These players will be able to contribute to the team as both a defense and offense threat. All are great athletes and played basketball which will improve on their foot work and field knowledge.”[gravityform id="278" title="true" description="true" ajax="true"]
Pleasant Grove Vikings
Pleasant Grove returns two All-State players in Addison McArthur and Alese Norton. A top seed is in reach for the Vikings if they can stay healthy and play their game.
Timpanogos lost their two top scorers and will hope their replacements will be able to carry the load.
The Thunderbirds only graduated 3 seniors and with leading scorers Abby Christensen and Summer Sutherland returning, Timpview could play the spoiler role come May.
Waterford graduated two All-State players (Lindsay Snuffer and Lismore Nebeker) and will once again be challenged by a small roster, but, like all Waterford teams, roster size doesn’t deter them.
West Jordan Jaguars
West Jordan welcomes new head coach Katie Selu to the team in hopes of making 2014 their best season yet. McKena Smith, Bella Waters, and Chantel Middleton will be the captains for the Jaguars squad on a team with no seniors.
