Team Outlook: STRENGTHS — The speed of the Lady Raiders’ 2012 squad will be tough to match as the team has an abundance of agility and athleticism throughout its roster.

WEAKNESSES —  Though the team’s speed is a huge plus, Immaculata’s height is not and the lack of size will need to be overcame for the team to be successful.

Coach says: “If we play aggressive and use our speed and quickness to cover the floor, I think we can make up for a lack of size. Our hitters have been pretty consistent in practice, so I hope we will be able to attack and keep constant pressure on our opponent.”
