Team chemistry was a major talking point throughout coach Meagan Thompson’s first season at Springdale.

A year later, she feels her Lady Red’Dogs are a stronger team thanks to a year of familiarity and offseason experience.

“I feel like our chemistry is a lot better, and even being with me for a full year,” Thompson said. “I know my players really well, and they know each other better and they have more trust. The chemistry on the court is just better, and last year that’s something we kind of struggled with.”

Another reason for optimism this year is returning production. KeKe Turner, who … Continue Reading ››
