Women’s Basketball Season Preview


The OSAA winter sports season is back in winter again. That is great because last season the winter season was in the spring/early summer. 

The Jesuit women’s basketball team is coming off a great season last spring and is anticipated to be one of the best teams in the state. 

Coach Lowery is excited for the new season. 

“I am looking forward to a full basketball season. Last year, there weren’t many games so it’s great to have the full season now,” Lowery said.

Many returning players are coming back to the team too.

“We have a lot of returners back with the team, and a good number of upperclassmen with experience so we are hoping for a solid season,” Lowery said. 

Many of these upperclassmen won individual awards last season and are predicted to be leaders on the team this year.

Emma Sixta was first team all-metro last year, and Kendra Hicks was second team. They lead a strong, deep, and committed group,” Lowery said.

Having your lead scorers be underclassmen gives the opportunity for them to grow into leaders for their senior year. 

Mac Pettit, one of the seniors on the team, is the captain. 

The women’s basketball team will be starting with a competitive non-league schedule too.

“Metro league is always tough and we’ll once again be playing a challenging non-league schedule,” Lowery said. 

Coach Lowery is excited about the new season and we’ll definitely be seeing an exciting, experienced women’s basketball team this season. 

The women’s basketball team starts their season as they go down to Silverton, Oregon to play the Foxes on December 1.
