Last year: 2-19, 0-7 GSSC
River Forest lost only one player to graduation, but the Ingots are still young. The varsity roster will feature four freshmen, and a pair of sophomores will begin the season in the starting lineup. Coach Courtney Quigg is excited for the futures of both Elicia Winkler and Colleen Cary. The freshmen had a lot of success at the middle school level. "They bring a lot of promise for us and a ton of potential," Quigg said. "They're actually pushing some of our varsity players." The Ingots are not big, but they are fast and expect to push the ball a little more this year. River Forest has won only six games combined in the last two seasons, but Quigg said she expects to turn a corner this year. The plan is to play at a level similar to her first two season on the job, when the Ingots had back-to-back 14-win campaigns. "We're still on the foundational area, but we won't be the same team that we've been the last two years," Quigg said. — David P. Funk
