Genoa-Kingston

Scouting Report: Genoa-Kingston

Coach: Kyle Henkel (first season)

Last season: 8-15 overall, 2-8 Big Northern Conference East.

Postseason Result: Lost to Byron, 54-35, in Class 2A Oregon Regional quarterfinals

Key Returners: Danielle Engel, sr., F; Andrea Strohmaier, jr., F; Shannon Schumacher, sr., G; Tori Hensley, sr.; G

Impact Newcomers: Alanna Carroll, jr., G; Katie Thurlby, jr., G; Courtney Winters, jr., C

Outlook: Henkel is looking to take the program in a positive direction and inherits a mix of young and experienced players.

Defensively, G-K will play mostly man-to-man, but could mix in some zone and full-court pressure. On the other end of the floor, Henkel is installing a motion offense and would like to get the ball in the post to Strohmaier on a consistent basis. That was a positive for G-K last season as Strohmaier was an All-Area Honorable Mention pick as a sophomore.

Henkel's take: "The program really has not been the greatest lately, but we're really looking for progression throughout the year. Get the girls to realize that we do have talent on this team, go out there with a positive attitude and get better each day."
