The Sunburst girls basketball team began practice Thursday, Nov. 17 with six athletes on the court. They are senior Tara Robins, juniors Claire Bucklin and Nikki Nau, sophomore Katie Hout, and freshmen Ali Nau and Ella Samsal.
Caoch Tyler Tharp is returning to lead the Lady Refiners, and he will be assisted by Kaitlyn Smith.
The Refiners returned all the girls from last year minus Megan Hout, who suffered a knee injury during volleyball season.
“Every athlete this year was a letter winner last season, and all were academic all-conference as well,” Coach Tharp said. “Claire Bucklin received a second team all-conference selection last year.”
The Refiners will begin their season Dec. 9-10 at the Dutton/Brady Invite, where they will face Big Sandy and Dutton/Brady.
