Last year, the Kingman Academy girls basketball team fell one win short of capturing back-to-back 3A Charter Athletic Association state titles.

For the six seniors, it was a disappointing end to their Tiger careers.

If this year's Lady Tigers want redemption for last year's seniors, they must do it with a younger group.

"We sat down and talked about goals as a team, and our goal is to definitely to make it back to the state tournament and to the finals," said KAHS coach Dave Scroggins. "We want to win our division and get a good seed in the tournament."

The Lady Tigers are returning just two seniors: Ally Barrios and Hanna Mousley. Both will have some large shoes to fill from the departed seniors who finished the 2011-12 season 19-1.

"We have two seniors, but they are different," Scroggins said. "They have different kinds of personalities. They are more of a lead-by-example, instead of being very outspoken."

Joining Barrios and Mousley will be juniors Ashlea Tomlinson and Alex Van Schijndel, and sophomores Amanda Murphy and Laura Harris. KAHS will welcome newcomers Reagan Haynes, Kara Ketchner and Kylie Tomlinson.

"I think the outlook is good this year," Scroggins said. "We are a little bit younger than what we've been in the past, but we have a very good outlook."

KAHS will open the 2012-13 season at 4 p.m. today against Metro Tech. The Lady Tigers will benefit from having their first three games of the season at home on Glass Chiropractic Court in the Betty Rowe Gymnasium.

"I think the biggest thing is dynamics as a team - which girls play better with each other and figuring out what works and what doesn't," Scroggins said.
