Santa Rosa Junior College Women's BasketballLast season the 2012-2013 Bear Cubs had a great season winning the Big 8 Championship for the 4th year in a row. The Bear Cubs finished the season 27-7 overall and 12-2 in the Big 8, advancing to the Final Four of the State ActionPlayoffs. Santa Rosa was led by a slew of sophomores, Whitney Edens, McKenzie Mangino, Arianna Hanson, Anandi Jimenez, Jade Hudson, Holly Cramer and Skyler Olsen. The Bear Cubs also had a few freshmen make big impacts on the season. Stephanie Sack (Casa Grande High School) took over the starting point guard role and was key in running the team. Madison Sowards and Taylor Graham, both from Maria Carrillo, came off the bench to round out the deep Bear Cub team. Outlook for the 2013-14 Season: the Bear Cubs are expecting a lot out of the six newcomers this year. With only three returning players from last year's roster, the incoming players will be asked to make an impact right away. Sacks and Sowards are two of the three returners who will be leading the way along with redshirt sophomore Erin Skinner from Rancho Cotate. Amber Hart from Middletown was a redshirt last year and will be asked to step in at the post to compete right Actionaway. Transfer Gretchen Harrigan (Casa Grande) has emerged as a strong inside and outside threat for the Bear Cubs. Freshmen Alicia Mehtlan from Willits, Ali Romano and Brittney Rauchey from Sonoma and Sarah Arteseros from Piner will be playing big minutes for the young team. Rauchey and Lorena Garduno from Roseland Prep both sat out last year and will bring maturity to the team. I have been pleased with the hard work and dedication of this team. They are a focused group and I am certain that I will enjoy working with them this year. With so many freshmen we are committed to becoming a team and are willing to work towards our goals. We are committed to our goal of winning the Big 8 Championship and the State Championship in 2013-2014.
