Head coach: Lee Rogers (second season)
Assistants: Donna McGowan, Don Banks and Gerry Quickel
1989-1990 record: 6-16
Returnees: Senior Tiffany Clayton (center); juniors Michelle Harrison (forward), LaToi Long (forward), Mary Pat Fannon (guard) and Andrea Sporre (guard); sophomores Alina Smith (guard) and Sarah Melby (forward).
Newcomers: Senior Donna Parker (guard); junior Julie James (forward); sophomores Sara Carson (forward) and Heather Sinclair (guard); freshmen Tami Goshefs (forward) and Julie Musitano (center).
Coach's outlook: "Compared to this time last year, we're definitely ahead. Last year consisted of mostly teaching, but now the girls are executing what they have learned. They are starting to show much more court awareness and they are more assertive, both offensively and defensively.
Our goal is to improve on last year's record. I think by next year, we'll be in real good shape, not that we don't want to do well this year. We'll just have to take things in stride. Our team speed isn't there yet, but that will come in time. We basically just want to have some fun out on the court."
Anne Arundel County Sun outlook: Rogers' troops will be tested early this year. After dropping their season opener, 61-27, to St. Mary's, the Wildcats run up against county foes North County, Meade and Old Mill before the Christmas break. Arundel is relying on New Jersey transfer Donna Parker to bolster its backcourt. Attaining a .500 record would be a major coup for the Gambrills school.
