The Westby High School girls basketball team may not have any returning starters, but that doesn’t mean it won’t field a competitive team this season.

Members of the Westby girls basketball team include (front, from left) Alli Weninger, Mckenna Manske, Lauren Jacobs, Claire Griffin, Josi Bishop; (back) Molly Stenslien, Olivia Nelson, Alayna Winterfield, Grace Hebel and Macy Stellner.

The Norsemen’s starting five includes just one senior and coach Brian Huebner admits that a lack of depth will be a challenge for the young team. However, he does believe the players he has ‘ all of whom have some varsity experience ‘ have spent countless hours playing together through the years, which is a big plus.

‘(The team) gets along well and they’re friends off the court just as much as on the court,’ said Huebner, who is in his 12th season coaching the team. ‘That’s our strength ‘ cohesion. We do have weaknesses, though, as we have an injury right now and are only practicing with nine girls, so we don’t have a lot of depth and that’s going to be a weakness.’
