The team, which consisted of three seniors and five juniors, worked hard but never managed to come up victorious, even once. One of the reasons given by senior Natalie Pruett for the unsuccessful season was that the "team has never had the same coach for more than one year and it is hard to adjust to a new coach each year." Michele Hutson, a junior, was selected to the second string all-league team. 1. Natalie Pruett. 2. Tina Tolley. 3. JV starting six. 4. Debbie Horn. 5. Coach Holloran. 6.
