The Lone Wolf program out of Vermont has all the elements of a successful travel team, save for one. They have the talent, but they are missing the experience that most championship clubs have accrued.
“Last year we had a group with a lot of experience, but this year is different,” said Coach Wayne Lapley. “This is going to be an interesting year. I really like these kids, and they have been working hard. I think they are going to be fine, we just need some game experience.”
Lone Wolf will gets its first game experience at the Breakers event in Rhode Island, and then the team will head to the prestigious Deep South Classic. The 2014 Deep South Classic will be played in Raleigh, NC, on April 25-27. Now in its 17th year, the Deep South Classic annually hosts many of the nation’s elite travel teams in a field that will eclipse 200 squads, and hundreds of collegiate coaches will be on hand searching for talent. The 2014 event will mark the second year that the Deep South Classic has been held at the Raleigh Convention Center. The venue was a tremendous success in its debut last year, with all games played at one site on 18 courts, and it is in a convenient central location.
Bret McCormick, the analyst for the All Star Girls Report, added his perspective on the top prospects from Lone Wolf:
Kim Howrigan: “She is a good athlete with size, and she can score inside or step out to the arc.”
Carolyn Snell: “Snell is another good athlete who is versatile, and she does a nice job on the boards.”
Mychaela Harton: “Harton is a quick, intelligent player who is good in the open floor, and she has nice shooting range.”
Halle Sam Boudreau: “She is a strong athlete who will get physical. She has a good upside.”
