MILWAUKIE — The Lady Falcons basketball team is aiming to improve on their third place finish in the Tri-Valley Conference last year with the help of the returning leadership of seniors Natalie Schlecter, Ellie Mulvaney and juniors Sterling Swift and Allison Ilg.
They will be led this year by new head coach Kelli Wedin. Wedin will be instituting a new up-tempo style, with fast moving players, crisp passes and a tough defense. Wedin says the team is a well built, deep and equally talented squad that has its sights set on moving past the sweet 16 in the state playoffs.
