Times Leader First Team

Kayley Schinski

The WVC Division 2 Player of the Year after leading the Trojanettes to the division championship game. She led her team with 12.5 ppg and grabbed five rebounds per game. Dangerous from long distance, she led the conference with 53 three-pointers made — 2.2 per game — helping Nanticoke to be the league’s top team from behind the arc. Scored 16 ppg during the postseason. Posted eight games of at least 15 points this season. She averaged 2.3 steals per game for the best defensive team in the conference.

Coach: Alan Yendrzeiwski
Outlook: The Trojanettes return three starters and a bevy of underclassmen will come off the bench. Kayley Schinski leads the team in exhibition games with 8.3 ppg. and should be the Trojanettes floor general this season.

Coach: Allen Yendrzeiwski
Last year: 24-3 overall; 13-1 WVC; Division 3 first-half champ; Division 3 season champ
Postseason: D2-3A runner-up; Lost 41-20 to Villa Maria in PIAA second round
Team stats: 54.9 ppg; 34.8 pa; 64.1 FT pct; 6.3 threes

Classification: 3A

Key players lost: Katie Wolfe, Division 3 MVP (team-high 12.7 ppg and 68.6 FT pct); Sammy Gow, first team WVC (10.1 ppg, team-high 59 threes); Cassie Yalch (2.6 ppg, 15 threes)
Players to watch: Kayley Schinski, first team WVC, 5-9, G, Sr. (9.0 ppg, 66.3 FT pct, 39 threes); Alex Brassington, second team WVC, 5-7, G, Sr. (6.9 ppg, 65.8 FT pct, 23 threes); Brittany Sugalski, second team WVC, 5-8, G, Sr. (4.4 ppg); Alex Holl, 5-7, F, Sr. (3.6 ppg); Sara Higgins, 5-5, G, Sr. (2.1 ppg); Heidi Kile, 5-9, G, Jr. (2.1 ppg)

Outlook: Like Valley West, it’s hard to say the Trojanettes lost just three players. Each played every game and included the top-two scorers. Five seniors remain on a roster of 15, including three starters. Size was an issue last season for the state qualifier. This season, freshman Kassie Schinski is the only player reaching 5-foot-10. Five players played in all six of the team’s playoff games last season.
