North Muskegon’s 2021-22 girls basketball team attended the VanDyk Mortgage West Michigan Conference media day last Wednesday at the Viking Athletic Center (VAC) in Whitehall.
Here is a season preview of the Norse. Make sure you check out their media day photos above, too.
COACH: Ryan Hankinson (5th season).
LAST YEAR’S RECORDS: 5-11 overall (3-10 West Michigan Conference, 6th place).
RETURNING STARTERS: Josee Cooke (Senior, Center, 6-0); Molly Stewart (Senior, Forward, 5-8).
KEY RETURNEES: Jena Francis (Senior, Forward, 5-6); A’mya Todd (Senior, Guard, 5-2).
Note: A’mya Todd will be out for the entire season because of an ACL injury.
NEW PROSPECTS: Allie Jensen (Sophomore, Guard/Forward, 5-7); Emma St. Germain (Junior, Guard, 5-9); Francine Vinson (Junior, Center, 5-11); Georgia Skujins (Junior, Forward, 5-9); Gracie Philpot (Sophomore, Forward, 5-0); Kaylee Martin (Freshman, Guard, 5-2).
STRENGTHS: On the offensive end, the Norse will rely on their shooting skills. They’ll need to rely on their drive and ability to overcome adversity in order to hang in there during challenging situations. According to Hankinson, the girls are eager to problem-solve and improve on a daily basis.
WEAKNESSES: Some injuries along with overall inexperience will surface as challenges for a young North Muskegon team this season.
SEASON OUTLOOK: Hankinson returns for his fifth season at the helm and looks to improve North Muskegon’s overall record. Developing the program, seeing growth across the board through hard work, remain large-scope goals for the Norse.
