The Waukon girls basketball team will be looking to rebuild a bit this season after the graduation loss of a large group of eight seniors who helped guide the Indians to a “final four” finish among Class 3A teams with the bucket Tribe’s first State Tournament qualification in nine seasons. However, that rebuilding will still have a fairly solid foundation upon which to begin reconstruction, as six letterwinners return from last season’s 19-4 campaign.

Among those returning veterans will be three each of seniors and juniors, including First Team All-Conference and Class 3A All-Tournament Team selection Annika Headington, who paced last season’s squad with her 11.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game averages. Joining Headington within those returning veteran ranks are the senior trio of Alison Sherman, Faith Palmer and Hailey Regan, with fellow juniors Regan Griffith and Margaret Wacker rounding out that returning letterwinning mix.
