Head Coach: Brad Forrest, eighth year

2014-15 record: 17-8, 7-1 Kaysinger

Who’s back: Devyn Williams, junior guard/forward, averaged 4 ppg, 4 rpg last season; Riley Rollins, junior forward who started at times last season; Danielle Craig, senior guard; Jodi Delong; Dharma Gilmore; Taylor Swisher; Kaylee Jones; Randi Alexander

Who’s new: Carmyn Johnson, 5-3 guard with speed, athletic ability and toughness; Ashley Ebeling, 5-8 forward; Shelbie Renno, quick 5-6 freshman guard; Kali Hurd, quick 5-6 freshman guard.

Who’s gone: Bailey Rollins, 1,000-point scorer and two-time Democrat Player of the Year, now at William Woods; Shelby Williams, 1,000-point scorer who had 900 career rebounds; Rylee Moore; Morgan Fowler

Outlook: The Lady Greyhounds will be a young team after losing the one-two punch of Bailey Rollins and Shelby Williams. Windsor comes into this season with one senior — guard Dani Craig — and two juniors — Riley Rollins and Devyn Williams. After losing most of their scoring from last season, coach Brad Forrest is looking for new scoring threats to emerge.

“We have a lot of inter-changeable parts and positions,” he said. “These young ladies will have to learn and gain experience on the fly. We should be pretty athletic with decent team speed. Hopefully we can use that to our advantage.”
