Last year: After finishing third in the West Valley Conference during the regular season with a 9-5 record (16-10 overall), the Lady Cats’ promising season ended early with a pair of league playoff losses.

Key athletes: Zina Oral, Cassidy Rush

Key losses: Amy Stott, Marina Toran, Selene Ortiz, Maya Jaramillo, Beth Turner, Cinthya Orozco

First home game: Friday against Delphian

Outlook: After posting back-to-back seasons in which Gervais finished with a winning record, the Lady Cats will attempt to make it three in a row this season. Sophomore guard Zina Oral and junior post Cassidy Rush will help fill the void left by last year’s seniors as they lead the team in head coach Adam Vasas’ second season as coach.
