Addis, Hurd Take Lead For Lady Buckeyes< < Back to
This is Doug Whiteman’s first season as the Lady Buckeyes’ coach. He is taking over for Amanda Dalton, who led the NY squad to a 19-3 record last season. He will have big shoes to fill, but with some starters returning, he should be able to garner the same success.
Jessie Addis is coming off a stellar freshman campaign, and the second year guard is hoping to build off what she was able to accomplish last year. Look for Addis to take that next step as a leader. If she can improve her court vision and stay under control when driving in the paint, look for her to vie for a spot on the All-Hero team.
Kaitlyn Hurd is entering her final season for the Lady Buckeyes and is looking to capitalize on a tremendous season last year. Hurd earned a spot on the All-Hero team last year for her efforts at forward. For the past couple of years Hurd has been in the shadows of her teammate Madison Davis. However, Davis graduated last year, so the Lady Buckeyes will look for Hurd to step up and provide that same leadership on and off the court that Davis did in previous seasons.
With returning starters in Jessie Addis, Kaitlyn Hurd and Hannah Taylor, this Lady Buckeyes squad has enough experience and talent to contend for a TVC-Ohio crown.
If Addis can become a better game manager, Hurd can provide a double-double night in and night out and Taylor can be a threat out on the wing then this team will be very dangerous come playoff time.
Whiteman has the same philosophy about the game that previous head coach Amanda Dalton garnered. So, for the Lady Buckeyes, it’ll be like they never had a coach change at all.
