MEDFORD — The girls basketball squad finished last year with what many called a fairy tale run at the state title, losing to Valley Catholic in the final.  

This year’s squad is determined to make another run, led by seniors Emily Alvarez, Lillian Martin, Sarah Ramsay, Elise Vasey and Sam Weiland. Other key returners include juniors Rose Alvarez, Viv Juncal and Dakotah Rothfus. Coach Richard Vasey has built a challenging preseason schedule with numerous 4A and 5A opponents including a Dec. 10 match-up at Mazama.
