With five returning letter winners and the addition of a transfer player who is expected to make an immediate impact, first-year coach Kyle Shipp is confident the Whiteland girls baskeball team will improve on last year’s 6-16 record.
Leading the way are returning senior starters Kaitlyn Phillips, Chelsea Perry and Michaela Harris. The Warriors will look to them for production at both ends of the court.
“We call them ‘The Big Three,’ and honestly, we’re going to rely heavily on them, offensively and defensively, to carry the team,” Shipp said. “I have high hopes and high expectations for them, and to this point, they’ve done a great job as leaders.
“But if those three struggle, we might struggle at times.”
