Season Outlook/Notes:
For the third straight season, SMU head coach Kim Fierke does not have a senior on her roster. But with juniors Kelly Gleason, Molly Hollenkamp and Sara Schachtner leading the way, the third-year head coach is looking for big things from the Cardinals this season. "Just because we don't have any seniors on the roster, doesn't mean we aren't an experienced team," Fierke said. "We've got three juniors who have started for us the last two years and we've got a number of sophomores who saw extensive duty last year." In other words, the Cardinals are young in age, but wise beyond their years in terms of playing experience. "We've set some high goals for ourselves," Fierke said. "Everyone has worked hard in the preseason - now it's time to see what this team is really made of."
