Lady Warriors Capture 2nd Place in Tough SSL
Best League Record in 10 Years!
Veteran coaches Bill Carll and Dennis Ruggles teamed up to guide the 2002-03 Lady Warriors to their best South Sequoia League finish in ten years! The 2003 Lady Warriors captured second place in the SSL with a fine 7-3 league record to qualify for the post-season playoffs. In league play, the Warriors dropped two games to eventual league champion Taft.
In playoff action, the Warriors crushed Exeter on the Mountain 64-44, behind a 24 point performance by Nikki Barker. The season came to an end on February 27, 2003 in Porterville as Granite Hills edged the Warriors 50-48 in a close, exciting game.
The Lady Warriors had a respectable 6-4 record in the pre-league schedule. The Warriors had two victories over Rosamond and finished with a 2-2 record in the competitive Stockdale Classic in Bakersfield. In the Stockdale tournament, the Warriors defeated McLane-Fresno and Bishop (44-39 in overtime), and dropped games to Paso Robles and Liberty-Bakersfield.
Co-captain Nikki Barker led the team in scoring with 230 points. "We had our share of tough losses and clutch victories. Those combined are what made our season great," stated Barker. Erin Hall led the team in rebounding with 89 rebounds.
