Lady Rams try to replace state qualifiers



Shubhika Jain makes a big jump as well. The sophomore played junior varsity a season ago as a freshman. This year she competes in the No. 3 slot.

She's very consistent, showed a lot of improvement so we're pleased with her,” Knox said.

Gauri Kaushel will be the team's No. 4 player. She was in the No. 5 spot as a junior.

Amanda Scott another senior will be the team's No. 5. A pair of juniors – Liz Hurst and Abagail Winkler could both contribute for the Lady Rams at No. 6. Knox said he likes having a potential of seven players who can play on the varsity squad.

I feel good about the group,” Knox said. “They work hard. Their strength is they're consistent and they'll get a lot of balls back. They'll make the other team beat them. They won't beat themselves very often.”

Knox added that Centralia, who returns all of its top players, would be strong this season along with Carbondale. Mt. Vernon opened the season Monday against the Lady Terriers. Knox added that the matchup would test his team immediately.

It will let them know exactly where they're at,” Knox said. “It will help us know what we need to work on.

It will give us a good idea of where we stand with them.”

Last year Mt. Vernon finished second in the South Seven Conference and was 9-3 overall.
