(Herculaneum, Mo.) The Herculaneum Blackcats girls basketball program will return all five of their starters from last year’s team that went 19-8 as they look to take the next step.
Herculaneum graduated just two seniors from last year’s team. This year’s seniors have played together since middle school and just finished a volleyball season in which they made it to the district championship match. Seniors Claire Shadowens, Emily Fischer, RaeAnn Fuller, Ashley Lodike, and Lauren Partney will all return.+++
Blackcats head coach Riley Blair is expecting the seniors to play a big role on the team with the chance to achieve some career goals along the way…+++
Blair added the team is trying to accomplish a few elusive goals this season…+++
Sophomore Taylor Metcalf is also expected to play a big impact on the team this year. Herculaneum is off to a nice start after they easily took care of the Windsor Owls Monday night in a 71-26 win to open up the 2017 season.+++
