Last year: 9-13, 2-5 PCC
Former Munster and Griffith assistant coach Chris Tomcsi takes over the helm of the Senators. Junior guard Heather Burton leads a experienced core of players, which continues to improve each season. Burton is the main offensive threat, but others, like senior low-post players Maddy Johnson and Sammie Higgins, should add scoring punch. Higgins is also a talented rebounder, providing the team with several second-chance opportunities. Sophomores Paige Ruesch and Donnae Lipinski will be expected to expand their roles this season. "There's a natural excitement around the program with there being a new coach," Tomcsi said. "The girls have welcomed the changes and challenges that myself and the rest of the coaching staff has put forth so far, especially on the defensive side of the ball." — Jim Hunsley

Heather Burton, Jr., G: An impact player on offense, Tomcsi said Burton has made strides on the defensive end. He believes she's become a more complete player.
Newcomer to watch
Donnae Lipinski, So., F: Skilled enough to play either in the post or on the perimeter. Tomcsi calls Lipinski a "gym rat," a tireless worker who also brings energy to the court.
