With last year’s state runner-up lineup all returning, the Joseph City Lady Wildcats have a great opportunity to return to the Division IV State Basketball Championship Game, where they fell to Tempe Prep last season. The Lady Cats have veteran players returning at every position for Coach John Bryant.
Seniors Savanna Baer, Kayla Hughes, Taylor Hill, Sierra Johnstun and Searra Hansen are joined by juniors Brooke Baldwin, Madison Fields and Kristin Baldwin, along with sophomores Lindi Gardner, Taylor Elmer and Krista Edwards.
With speedster guard Taylor Hill, 6’2” Kristin Baldwin, Madison Fields and Searra Hansen cleaning up the boards, the Joseph City squad will be a heavy favorite in the majority of its games this season, even though the Lady Cats play many larger schools.
They will host St. Johns on Tuesday, Nov. 27, to begin their season. The following day, they travel to Williams to take on the Lady Vikings.
