Forsyth Central Coach: Angela Hurt (fourth season) Last season: 11-15 Key returners: G Sophie Kurtz (Jr.), G Maria Hansen (Sr.), F Gina Fishler (So.) Key newcomers: Morgan Day (Fr.) Outlook: The Lady Bulldogs will be making their transition from Class 5A to Class 7A—a big leap that’s sure to cause some growing pains for the program. Complicating that matter is the fact Julie Richards, a 1,000-point scorer for her career, graduated, and the Lady Bulldogs only return four players from last season; Sophie Kurtz is the lone returning starter. As such, with a young roster, the most important for head coach Angela Hurt is how quickly players develop effective communication on the court.
