2011-12 Preview: Women's Basketball


West Windsor, N.J. -- With a short roster to start of the season - just seven players - Head Coach Mike Tenaglia is envisioning a challenging first half to the women's basketball season.

"We open Nov. 19 at home against Harcum College, which won the region last year," Tenaglia says, who begins his 22nd season at Mercer. "We are preparing for some tough competition, but we plan to work hard, and will compete, as always, with the regional title as our goal." He notes that several strong additional players are expected to join the roster in January.

Three sophomores are returning for the Lady Vikes: Chelsea Holman (Nottingham HS), Chanel Johnson (Hamilton West HS), and Allicia Pickett (Bordentown Regional HS). Tenaglia says he will count on these team leaders to help replace scoring powerhouses Alexis Sweet, who is in the record books as one of only four Mercer women to score 1,000+ points, and Azaria Crews, as well as forward Marelys Williams. The Lady Vikes finished last season with an 18-12 record and the Garden State Athletic Conference title.

Tenaglia will be assisted by Jane Berlinger and Samantha Cobbs.
