Summer Practice Period Check-In: Bridgeport Girls Basketball

Posted: Updated:
BRIDGEPORT -

If you're a Bridgeport girls basketball fan, then there is no way you can forget last season.

West Virginia Girls Basketball Player of the Year Miki Glenn was the star of the season during Bridgeport's run to the top.

But now is when life after Miki sets in.

The Indians will rely on a few veteran seniors to lead the way. Head Coach Dave Marshall will certainly have his work cut out for him this year.

As new faces come to the forefront, Coach Marshall will be needed more than ever if the Lady Indians want to repeat as State Champions.

"We need to be a little bit better in the weight room," Marshall said. "We need to be a little bit better shooting the basketball. It probably won't be noticeable to the average person from the beginning to the end of that practice. But if you do that every day, then you give yourself a chance to be competitive in the end. That's what this is about. They're going to grow as people, and that's the most important thing to me."

"I think we need to work on team work and bonding together because we have a lot of freshman coming up. They have a lot of potential but we need to keep working together. They need to learn our defense and I think just team bonding would help a lot," Indians senior guard Lauren Wickenhofer said.
