Head coach: Bonnie Foote

Record so far: 1 loss to North Creek, 1 win over Marysville-Pilchuck, Sept. 12 game at Shorewood

Team captains: Seniors Lillian Bachand and Amma Anderson

Team seniors: In addition to Anderson and Bachand, the team has three other seniors, Jessica Hanners, Dana Kenow and Adrian Auxier, most of whom have played together, or in the same leagues, since their U-12 days.

Team advantages: The seniors’ experiences playing together, says Anderson are one of their main strengths. “We’re definitely a lot more like a family this year.”

They’re also solid in every position, which is both an advantage and a challenge, says Bachand. “We are well rounded, our offense is good, our defense is good, but we don’t have one dominant position.”

Challenges ahead: “If I had to choose a weak point, I’d say it was our hitting,” said Bachand.

Don’t-miss game: Thursday, Oct. 5 at Skyline High School. “We’re not really their rival, but they’re our rival,” says Bachand.

Next home game: Tuesday, Sept. 19, the Wildcats host Inglemoor. Varsity game time is 7:30 p.m., JV plays at 5:30 p.m.
