Lady Chargers have experience, potential

North Decatur head coach Brad Bryant is not underestimating the abilities of the girls basketball team this winter, despite the graduation of the program’s leading rebounder and one of the school’s most prolific scorers.

After Jenna Meyer graduated to play at Georgetown College in Kentucky, the Lady Chargers are looking to fill the void left by North’s career leading rebounder and third-highest scorer.

Also graduating was one of North’s top defenders, Cindy Krieger, Lindsay Nobbe and Veronica Yager.

Bryant understands the uncertainty of the change, but insists that the overall varsity experience will cushion the transition. Although Meyer’s production cannot be replaced, the current roster can look to six experienced seniors to lead the team.

“They all have experience on varsity, and most have a lot of experience on varsity,” said Bryant, who noted that North returns 57 percent of its scoring. “We’re looking to find four or five kids who can pick up the scoring for us.”

Seniors Andrea Volk and Anna Wallpe combined to score 243 points in the regular season. Volk, a third-year starter, was second on the team in scoring and double-digit games. Bryant said North will look to her to increase her scoring role, along with her defense.

“We really need to pick up her scoring a lot,” he said. “She is another that plays good defense.”

After Meyer, Wallpe was North’s most consistent scorer.

“She did a great job last year,” said Bryant of Wallpe. “We really didn’t see what all she was capable of last year because Jenna played. Anna’s plenty capable of scoring 10 to 12 points a game. I’m looking forward to her doing a lot of good things for us.”

North’s fourth-leading scorer, senior Abby Lamb, played significant minutes as a junior. She scored 86 points and contributed down the stretch.
