Season Outlook/Notes:
First-year Head Coach Mary Orsted is faced with the task of rebuilding a Macalester program which graduated seven player and 66% of the scoring from last season's 7-18 team. Among the key losses were last year's top two scorers - four-time All-MIAC forward Amy Amundson and guard Beth Bowerman.

Orsted, a former University of Minnesota player and Macalester assistant coach the past two years, has a few experienced players to rely on. Forward Karen Martin (Jr., Westford, MA/Acton-Boxborough) averaged 7.8 points a game and was among's the league's rebound leaders with a 7.0 average. Because she's studying overseas this fall, Martin won't rejoin the team until January. Kate Stebbins (Jr., North Bend, OR) will take over in the post after averaging 3.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in limited duty.

Forward Katie Herwig (Jr., Minnetonka, MN/Blake) started in half the team's games last winter and averaged 5.0 ppg. Kelly McAnnany (Jr., Minneapolis, MN/Blake) provided depth to the backcourt last year and was third on the team in assists despite limited dury. Nora Anderson (Jr., Bloomington, MN/Blake), a transfer from St. Thomas, is expected to play a key role.

"You would think the loss of seven seniors would have hit us hard, but I am proud of the dedication and commitment our current student-athletes are showing," commented Coach Orsted. "They have goals they want to reach and they are on nthe road to achieving them."
