Women’s basketball: Only 3 players return
Third-year head coach Jodie Runner is cautious in her expectations for her team
in the upcoming season. The Rams posted an impressive 18-11 mark with a 12-6
mark in conference last season, but return only three players who saw significant
playing time last season.
    Runner does feel she has a young, talented squad that will finish in the top half
of the conference despite being relatively inexperienced.
A pair of freshmen Rebecca Frece (Springfield, VA/Annandale HS) and Tiffany Acker
(Mount Solon, VA/Buffalo Gap HS) will battle for the starting spot at point guard.
    Frece is a player with great court sense and an abundance of natural ability.
Acker is a hardworking, excellent defensive player with deceptive skills.
    Seniors Carrie Kunkel (Gettysburg, PA/ Gettysburg HS) and Anna Lashway
(Guilford, VT/ Brattleboro Union HS) are veteran returnees at the off guard spot.
    Kunkel averaged 5.5 points and 3.1 rebounds for the Rams last season. She
topped the Ram regulars in three-point percentage (.428, 20-49) and her 20 treys
were third most on the team.
    Lashway averaged 11.0 points and 4.4 rebounds in limited action last year. She

also connected on 5-of-8 shots from three-point range.
    Kunkel is the most experienced player and has improved her all-around game
considerably. She will be counted on to lead this young squad. Lashway is a great
inside-outside threat and her size (6-0) should cause matchup problems for opponents.              Junior LaToya Fisher
    A quartet of freshmen will also push for playing time. Molly Land (Hope, IN/

matchup problems with her 5-11 frame.                                                     Women’s Basketball Schedule
