Since taking over the Lady Pirate ship a few years ago, Brad Huter has swashbuckled his way to three state tournament’s in five years, including last year with a very young group.

“We were happy to be there, but we took a thumping,” said Huter who started four sophomores last year and had seven on the team.

This year the Pirates are hoping to get back to the big year end tournament and they may have the fire power coming back and some transfers that could help them make a bigger dent at state.

Leading the way back is 5-foot-8 point guard Alana Riley. The junior averaged 15 points-per-game last year.

Also back after spending a year in Oklahoma is “all-around player” July Ledford who plays every position on the floor. The 5-foot-10 senior started her freshman and sophomore years before leaving and averaged 15 points-per-game as a sophomore with Notus.

After the top two scorers the Pirates return a slew players with “size and athleticism,” according to Huter. Junior guard Jacylinn Parra is a role player Huter expects to improve as is 5-foot-10 junior post Gabby Okamura.

Also back to crash the boards are score for Notus are hard-working senior post Kim Jimenez and 6-foot junior post Kenna Ireland.

Huter also expects a significant contribution from senior guard Mia Gomez. She transferred from Caldwell last year and had to play junior varsity per transfer rules.

The Pirates have a lot of parts and pieces that look very good on paper. It’s the right combination to execute the Pirates up-tempo, fast breaking and trapping style. But Huter said the team still has a long way to go and must jell together still.

“One of our goals is to get to state and we want to get that first win and go from there. It is gonna be tough year, because south is tough and northern teams are out of this world. But we know we are capable of playing better.”

The Pirates are certainly a favorite in the 1A Western Idaho Conference and should be one of the teams to beat at District along with Liberty Charter, Idaho City and Rimrock.

“I think we’re grounded and I try to keep them that way. They’re confident and that’s good. But I know they learned a lot from last year going to state. They’ll be coachable and want to get better throughout the year."
