Season overview: The Lady Cavs are coming off the first regional championship in school history and have lots of experience back. McDonald is in her first full season after transferring in from Hamady last year and leading Carman-Ainsworth in scoring the second half of the season.

Belill is in his first varsity job but coached the boys’ JV to an 18-1 record last year.

“We are bringing a good mix of experience with some younger talent that hopefully will blend well together,” he said. “Our expectations are set very high, and we are looking forward to a fun and successful season.” Juniors Chelsey Carpenter, Ocean Cooper and Jamia Stallings are newcomers.
