Bulldogs bank on 2 juniors for playoff shot Southern GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL PREVIEW

December 03, 1992|By Steven Kivinski | Steven Kivinski,Contributing Writer

A quick scan of the Southern girls basketball roster reveals that the Bulldogs are lacking the senior leadership that earned them a berth in last year's Class 2A, Region III finals.

Upon closer review, however, the lineup includes two experienced underclassmen -- juniors Laekeka Wesley and Laketia Mullen -- who could help the Bulldogs return to the state semifinals after a three-year absence. Wesley, a 5-foot-11 forward, averaged 13.6 points and 11.0 rebounds last season and was selected Anne Arundel County Sun first-team All County.

Mullen, a 6-foot center, started the season on the Bulldogs JV before moving up and averaging 5.0 points and 9.0 rebounds in the Bulldogs' final eight games.

"I think we have two very good people to build our team around," coach Linda Kilpatrick said.

Wesley and Mullen will get some help rebounding this season from 5-11 sophomore Krista Borden, who transferred from Virginia.

"Krista should help us on the boards once she breaks into the starting lineup," Kilpatrick said.

Juniors Laura Stockett, Julie Christianson and Kari Sherbert are fighting for the starting guard positions along with sophomores Becky Archambo and Michelle Raley.
