Season Outlook/Notes

Under the guidance of fourth year coach Lori Finanger, St. Kate’s will enter their second full year of conference play. The addition of nine first year players and one sophomore transfer with MIAC experience brings much needed depth to the Wildcats’ squad. Three returning starters look to lead the team this year. The junior duo of Teresa LeMire (forward, 11.8 ppg, 4.40 rpg) and Jeanna Spannring (center, 12.8ppg, 8.12 rpg) are last year’s leading scorers and should provide significant spark to the team’s performance. Key leadership on the floor will also come from co-captain and three sport athlete senior Sheri Hoernemann (guard, 7.88 ppg, 3.12 rpg). The Wildcats open their season at Gustavus December 5.
