ARCANUM – The Lady Trojans overall record from last season was a bit deceiving playing a tough non-conference schedule. They will be under the guidance of Abbey Moore now in her 4th season. Expect Arcanum to challenge as one of the top teams in the conference.

Players who will contribute a lot this season are:

Ashlyn Miller is a senior guard who averaged 6 ppg and 2.2 steals last year.

Rylee Leeper is a senior guard and score 3 ppg and 2.5 rebound last season.

Ava Gilbert is a senior forward who saw limited action last season but provides valuable leadership for the squad.

Brooke Anderson is a junior guard who averaged 7.5 ppg, 2.9 steals and 4 rebounds. She will be a big part of the Trojans offense.

Lexy Gibbons is a junior forward who was the leading scorer last season 13ppg. A smooth player who has worked hard on her game and will be the focus of a lot of defenses this year.

Avery Leeper is a sophomore guard moving up to varsity this season.

Faith Wooten is a sophomore center who has the size to defend the post and skill level on the block to be a threat offensively inside.

Matty Noe is a freshman guard who was a big part of the 15-2 8th grade team last year.

Claire Hein is a freshman forward who was a big part of the 15-2 8th grade team last year.

Abbey Moore is excited about this group of athletes and ready to get the season going.

“I am very excited to get this season kicked off! We have had a great preseason, and I can’t wait to see these girls put it all together. Keys for us to have success this year are going to be giving everything we have every second we are on the floor and consistently play to our level. This group is very motivated and thankful for another opportunity to win the WOAC,” Moore stated.

Although coach Moore didn’t name any front runners she fully expects her team to be in the hunt.

“I see the battle for the conference to be very competitive and exciting this year that will lead to some very good WOAC matchups throughout the season. For us to reach our goal of a WOAC Championship we have to give our best every time we hit the floor. Our tough non-conference schedule will help us prepare for the battles we will have within the conference,” Moore concluded.
