The Walters State Lady Senator basketball team garnered a preseason ranking of #11 in the first poll of the new season. The Lady Senators finished last season as the #15 team in the country, finishing with a 22-6 record.
The Lady Senators return four players from last year's region championship squad. Gazmyne Herndon, Canzis Echols, Dejah Montgomery, and Oneisha Turner all saw playing time as freshmen last year. Jessica Wallis is also returning, but sat out last year with an injury. Add in sophomore transfers Amber Thompson and Sara Vujacic to give Walters more experience to their depth.
Brooke Smith, Brianna Dixon, Zacharyia Esmon, Tamia Curry, Caleah Shannon, and Diamond Forrest are all freshmen looking contribute to the squad's success this season.
