Girl’s Basketball Preview

Sam Strobel

West Ottawa Panthers

Coach: Jenna Plewes

Assistant Coach: Mike VanHekken


2014-2015 Stats



Season Overview: The Panthers are coming off a season in which they finished .500%. The Panthers lost 6 seniors (four of whom were starters), so the team has many new roles to fill this year. However, the Panthers have plenty of depth as they boast a team of 5 Freshman, 4 Sophomores, 1 Junior, and 4 Seniors. Pending how long it takes for this young team to adjust to the physicality of varsity basketball, the Panthers could have a talented and very bright future.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly


The Good: The Panthers future is bright.

With 9 underclassmen on the roster watch out for the Panthers in the following seasons. Having 9 underclassmen on a varsity sport in the OK Red conference is rare to say the least, so this young talent and experience the youth of this team is getting this year very well might set up a run to the Breslin in years to come.  


The Bad: Inexperience.

The Panthers might struggle this year with so little varsity experience, starting 4 new starters and with the majority of the team having no varsity experience, will hurt. With that being said, the talent is there, if the younger players on the team can perform, expect success.


The Ugly: Strong Conference

The OK Red is strong this year for Girls Basketball. This does not bid well for a young Panther team.
