A Look at the 2011-12 Women's Hoops Roster

The Women's Basketball roster hasn't been posted online yet, but it was provided at today's Winter Sports Lunch. Here's what the varsity squad will look like:

#Name Class Ht Pos High School
4Shelby SheehanSO5-3GDearborn Divine Child
10Kayla EngelhardFR5-7GSaginaw Valley Lutheran
11Kelsey IrwinJR5-4GFraser
12Leah MattsonSR5-7GCadillac
15Kirstin TrippSO5-6GBrighton
20Danielle KapustkaSO5-7GNorthview (via Aquinas College)
22Breanna VerkaikFR5-11GHolland Christian
23Jill ThomasSR5-6GWest Catholic
24Logan MarshJR5-6GByron Center
30Jessica LangFR5-9FRochester Adams
32Carissa VerkaikJR6-2FHolland Christian
34Courtney KurnczSR5-11GSt. Johns
40Ally WolffisJR5-11FMona Shores
42Julia HilbrandsJR6-0FGrand Rapids Christian
44Maria DeKuiperFR6-0FBradenton Christian

Julia Hilbrands is obviously playing Volleyball, so the basketball team will be without her as she chases a back-to-back nation title there. They're going to have to get creative when it comes to post players in her absence (coach Ross said it "really strains them").

I'm not expecting Breanna Verkaik to be a carbon copy of her older sister (that would be quite unfair), but according to coach John Ross, the sisters have a special chemistry when they're on the floor together.

Coach Ross also noted that Freshman Maria DeKuiper scored over 2,000 points in high school.
