The lowdown

Young but athletic, Waukesha South will probably still be challenged in the talent-rich Classic 8, but the Blackshirts were able to hang with several top teams last year. However, losing talented senior Emily Schumacher is sure to leave a void. Coach Paul Darling said there is good leadership on this year's team, all the same.

Opening tip

South will be short on experience at the point guard position and look to improve its rebounding acumen as the year goes along. Junior Armoni Brown, who's had success at the state track and field meet, joins the team as a 5-5 guard. She took second with her teammates in the 4x100-meter relay as a sophomore last year, placed third in the long jump and 12th in the triple jump.
