Bradley Central’s girl program doesn’t retool….they reload. And this 2023-24 version should be the front-runners to repeat as state champs. I spoke to Coach Retuer and these were his notes as his squad begins another championship chase.
is a 6-0 sophomore and was the state tournament MVP lastrnyear as a Freshman, and has only improved over the summer. Fields is arnsolid post player on both sides of the ball who can shoot facing thernbucket and with her back to the bucket. She has already receivedrnnumerous offers and should be a force to be reckoned with.
is a 5-6 junior who started 35 games last season and wasrna member of the All-State Tournament team. Brewer is the bestrnthree-point shooter on the squad. We will more than likely see a lotrnof zone, so I can sleep better at night knowing we have someone whorncan knock down the jumper. She puts in a lot of work after practicernand on her own and will play some at the point for us this year.rnBrewer also has some college offers with expectations for more torncome.
is a 5-10 junior who started 35 games and was also arnmember of the All-State Tournament team. Ware can play a small orrnpower-forward role for us this season and is comfortable driving orrnposting up. We can feel comfortable knowing that Harmonie can play anyrnof the five spots on the floor and is probably our most versatilernplayer on the team. She is getting recruited by multiple Division Onernschools with offers.
Malia Wilcox is a 5-4 junior point guard who gave us good minutes offrnthe bench last season. She is a true-point guard looking to passrnrather than shoot. She gets after it on defense and only knows onernspeed, to go as hard as she can. Her role may be the most pivotal,rnrunning our offense and she is a great competitor who has been workingrnbehind the scenes. There is no doubt that she will be ready to takernover the reins after learning from a three-year starter, SloanrnCarpenter, over the last two seasons.
is a 6-1 junior who transferred in from the WebbrnSchool in Bell Buckle to come back home. Stovall is as athletic as anyrngirl I have ever coached. She has an unusual combination of size andrnspeed you don’t see often and can go left or right around the rim. Shernwould improve any team she is on and is a competitor that fits in wellrnwith the culture of our team. She has offers and is getting recruitedrnby some major D1 schools.
is a 5-6 guard and is the lone senior on our team. Shernis currently coming back from a knee injury sustained last January.rnShe can knock down the open jumper. She gives our team the chance tornplay inside out and her leadership is what I expect from a Bearette.rnShe will give us good minutes off the bench and we are looking forwardrnto having her back healthy.
Rounding out the rotation we have a trio of juniors and a sophomore.
, Alliyah Osobrn, and Abby White are all junior guards who
can shoot the three and will have an impact on this year’s team. Addie
Geren is a sophomore swing three who can shoot the jumper and will
make an impact over the next few seasons.
