Winter Sports Preview: Anselmo-Merna Lady Coyotes

LADY COYOTES LOOK TO IMPROVE UNDER NEW COACH MERNA -- Jennifer Schmidt begins her head coaching career as she takes over the Anselmo-Merna girls basketball team. Coach Schmidt inherits four returning starters from last year’s team that finished 5-16. An experienced group of seniors will be asked to lead the younger players to build teamwork and a winning attitude. Seniors Sadie Hunt and Julia Downey will start around the perimeter while seniors Anna Finney and Jessi Burnett will be strong assets around the basket. Sophomores Victoria Downey and Janae Hostick are returning letter winners who will also contribute to the success of the Lady Coyotes.
