Seahawks think positive South River GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL PREVIEW

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

With no returning seniors to speak of and a defense that she says "lacks the basic fundamental skills," first-year South River girls basketball coach Millie Beall could be in for a long winter.

The Seahawks, under the direction of veteran coach Jim Morton, finished 7-13 last season.

Beall isn't giving up, though.

"We're coming off a disappointing year, and we are young and small, but the kids are really working hard and they have good attitudes," said Beall, who hasn't coached at the high school level since her head coaching days at Elizabeth Seton in Bladensburg from 1968 to 1972. "I think we may surprise some people down the road. I have a lot of hope for this team and I'm looking forward to getting the season going."

Erin Earley, the lone senior on the South River squad, didn't play last year, but should see some time at forward along with juniors Pam Patterson (5 feet 11) and Jen Taylor.

Junior Chiara Lee and returning sophomore Cassidy Dunbar are candidates at guard, as well as sophomore Kim Morehead and freshmen Jessica Marion and Beall's daughter, Amy Nye.
