Season Outlook/Notes:
The Lady Royals are looking to the 1998-99 season with enthusiasm as a number of young players will be looked upon to contribute. Sophomore post Laura Jacobs (Wells, MN) was the second leading scorer on last year's team, despite missing part of the season due to injuries. Coach Hester is counting on Jacobs to provide Bethel's inside scoring this season. Senior Shannon Nuest (Solvie) is a returning starter who will also be looked upon to score and provide leadership to a young team. Senior posts Sarah Anderson (Shakopee, MN) and Lisa Carlson (Fridley, MN) gained experience last year and will be counted on to provide inside help.
