The Menahga Girls’ Basketball team is coming off a 20 win season which included a 12-2 record in the Park Region Conference. They lost Tara Hendrickson and Annie Lake to graduation, however, they return seven letter winners, including four starters from that team.
“We will have a lot of experience and depth returning as we started four sophomores a majority of last year and we are really excited to build off of that experience,” commented Head Coach Cody Pulju.
Varsity players returning include seniors Martha Peterson (Guard) and Timbr Bertunen (Guard) and juniors Janie Tormanen (Center), Maryn Pinoniemi (Guard), Lela Peterson (Guard), Amanda Lake (Guard) and Allie Pfeifer (Guard).
Coach Pulju will be looking for varsity contributions from a trio of freshmen guards, Janelle Hendrickson, Erica Tormanen and Addie Pinoniemi.
Pulju says Henning is the top team in the Park Region Conference and Fergus Falls is the team to beat in Section 8AA.
Assistant Coaches are Kevin Sommers, Rylan Aho and Keylee Sommers.
