Coach: Ryan Hall
Number of athletes: 13
Last season: The Islanders were third in the state tournament. The team finished the season with a 6-5 record.
Strengths: “I think our greatest strength will be that most of our starters have played together for the last three years,” said Hall. “They all have a strong awareness of each other’s strengths and weaknesses and are very comfortable playing with one another.”
Focus: “Our focus early on this season will be to try and bring our newer players up to speed with our more experienced athletes,” said the coach.
Captains: Christina Williamson, Kristin Hoffman and Jenna Sharman.
Game to watch: Newport.
“Our game against Newport is a good one to go to,” said Hall. The Islanders will take on the Knights on April 19.Contact Mercer Island Reporter Reporter Megan Managan at email@example.com or (206) 232-1215 ext. 5054.
