Waverly Lady Vikes

Head Coach: John Cockerill (7th Year)

Career Record: 254-148 (93-71 at Waverly)

2022-23 Record: 17-8 (Class B State Qualifier)

Returning letterwinners/starters: Parker Christiansen, 6-0, jr., forward/center; Anastyn Harms, 5-6, jr., guard; Peyton Tritz, Lexi Adams, Berkely Lambrecht, Carson Fink and Breeley King.

Others to watch: Peyton McCabe and Molly Ladwig.

Season outlook:  Waverly brings back some offensive firepower but have to replace defense and rebounding, which were strengths from last season’s state tournament team.  Perhaps the biggest challenge for the Lady Vikes will be their schedule with a loaded Eastern Midlands Conference set up, plus some teams they will face from Class C1.
