County girls ready to hit the court


Back for the Cadets from last season with varsity experience and to lead are Brandyce Sallee and Sydney Stein and both were all-conference players in the WCC last year. Sallee averaged 13 ppg and Stein recorded 12. Sallee also hit the 500 point mark for her career at Cascade and made the Cadets’ top 12 in all-time scoring.

“Brandyce will be a captain for us this year and she is just the glue that keeps us together,” Helmick said. “Katy Copsey and Brandyce are the lone returning seniors. Stein is a junior that we will look to for leadership and scoring.”

Helmick also pointed to sophomore Katie Smith and freshmen Katy Bell as two up and coming players that could contribute for the Cadets. Smith will be relied upon for rebounding and defense.

“Our success will depend on how well we come together as a team and if we can defend anyone,” Helmick said. “We have a team quote this year, ‘plus two and finish.’ We want to go two steps farther than we think we can and finish. We want to strive for more than being average.”



After reviving the girls’ basketball team the past two seasons from a four-year layoff, the Bethesda Christian girls’ team has a new coach.

Wayne Leichty takes over the reigns of the Patriots’ squad and looks to continue building the program.

“As we continue to rebuild, we want to grow as a team that plays solid, fundamental basketball,” he said. “Our goal is to play for the team, as a team. We are still learning the game of basketball as we rebuild.”

Bethesda improved to 8-11 last season after a 3-12 outing when the school brought back the program the year before.

Seniors Cassie Mitchell, Kendra Okey and Carly Baker return to help the Patriots achieve their goals this season.
