Wasaren League girls basketball preview: Hoosick Falls Panthers

Team: Hoosick Falls

Head coach: Ken Facin

Last year’s record: 12-11

Playoff result: Lost in Section 2 Class C semifinals

Returning starters: Lilllian Hickey (senior point guard), Logan Thayne (junior center), Olivia Brownell (senior guard)

Other returners: Madeline Walker (junior forward), Grace Wysocki (senior guard), Skye Haynes (senior guard), Lily Abbott (senior guard), Faith Adamczenko (senior guard), Molly Walker (sophomore forward)

Outlook for the season: Hoosick Falls has its two leading scorers back this season – Thayne, who averaged 20.3 points and 13.2 rebounds per game, and Hickey, who was also one of the top defenders on the team. Brownell is also an integral part of the defense with her ability to force turnovers and fight for rebounds.

“Experience should bode well in league play with this core nucleus that compliments each other very well,” said Facin.
