Seventh-year head coach Lisa Stone welcomes back six players from last year’s team that made a third consecutive WNIT appearance. Seniors Jordyn Frantz, Kerri McMahan and Tara Dusharm lead the way and are joined in the returning group by junior Kendra Wilken and sophomores Tasia Jeffries and Lauryn Hughes.
Redshirt junior Amber Lindfors, who sat out last season after transferring from Valparaiso, joins the mix this year. SLU’s freshman class, ranked 33rd in the nation by highly regarded evaluation service Blue Star Basketball, is composed of Myia Clark, Brooke Flowers, Ciaja Harbison, Chloe Rice and Evan Zars. Sophomore Myriama Smith Traore will sit out the season after transferring from Marquette.
