Girls No. 7 Rock Hill Bearcats
Head Coach: Kennan Orr (6th year as Rock Hill head coach)
2014-15 Notes: Finished 19-8 overall, 10-2 in Region III play to finish second to Northwestern; lost in the second round of the playoffs to Spring Valley, 62-49.
Returning Starters: Mason Hendrix (5-6, PG, Sr.); Monique Stevenson (5-3, G, Sr.); Modesty Fobbs (5-10, F, Sr.); Kendall Lahr (5-3, G, Sr.)
Key Newcomers: Brooklyn O’Bailey (5-3, G, So./Nation Ford transfer); RiKoya Anderson (5-9, F, So./Lewisville); Whitney Malone (5-6, G, Jr.)
Why Them?: The Bearcats return four starters and are loaded with backcourt talent – led by all-region point guard Mason Hendrix (12.2 ppg, 8.7 apg), seniors Monique Stevenson and Kendall Lahr. Transfers Brooklyn O’Bailey and RiKoya Anderson could make the difference for this team contending for a Region III, 4A title and making a postseason run.
