New girls basketball coach Deana Hendrix hopes to build on the strength of her team as it went 30 and 2 last season. "That may be hard to beat," Hendrix said. "We'll take it one game at a time. We do have a solid core of players that will provide a lot of leadership for the team."

Last week, the Lady Bears hosted the Maryvale High School Panthers in a no-score scrimmage match and the Bears worked on their stride as a team. "We played well, we played hard and still have a few things to work on," Hendrix said and explained that the team is putting together new plays and at this point, figuring out where to go and when during different situations.

The three team captains this year are seniors Kylie Morris, Kirsten Smith and Dacie Clark.

Hendrix is a graduate from Moon Valley High School where she played all four years. After graduation, Hendrix attended Indiana Tech on a basketball scholarship. After graduation, she moved back to the valley and coached the Moon Valley varsity team for nine years in addition to coaching the eighth grade team. "It was a part of who I was; that experience helped me get a college education and I wanted to go back and do the same for other girls," Hendrix s explained her decision to coach for her high school.

Last year, Hendrix moved with her family to Prescott Valley and this season marks the first that Hendrix will coach varsity at Bradshaw.

"I think the team will be fun to watch, it's a dynamic group of kids on and off the court," Hendrix said.

The first home game will take place today as the Lady Bears take on Apache Junction at 7 p.m.
