Montgomery County will “sort of” have a new Head Coach this year, as Rachel Leu is returning to this position at R-2 after teaching and coaching the past 5 years at Mexico High School. Coach Leu will continue to teach in the Mexico School System. Her assistant coach is Megan Hollenbeck, who is in her sixth year in this position.
There 26 girls who have come out to play on this year’s team. They include: Seniors – Anna Ash, Christina Ferguson, Kayla Knipfel, Sierra Kolan and Tori Van Doren; Juniors – Carli Schmidt, Karli Shaw and Victoria Weitkamp; Sophomores – Lydia Bishop, Macy Block, Gabby Carter, Payton Davidson, Kayla Koch, Audrey Mayes, and Taylee Ripley; and Freshmen Aubreigh Allen, Hailey Bushdiecker, Madison Davenport, Anna Ellul, Kalee Flake, Rachel Mayes, Kyleigh Polston, Allie Schleuter, Kayla Schmidt, Gabby Shears, and Millie West.
Coach Leu has 5 returning starters from the 2013 team (Ash, Kolan, Van Doren, Karlie Schmidt, and Shaw). With this returning experience, the hope and expectations are for the Lady Wildcats to have a successful 2014 season.
Coach Leu made the following comments about the upcoming 2014 season: “We have all the pieces to have a successful season. Right now we just have to work on putting those pieces together. I am really excited to see where our hard work will take us this season.”
The Lady Wildcats and the coaching staff hope you will come and support them, and cheer them to victory this season. Best wishes to the Lady Wildcats for a successful 2014 season.
