GIRLS BASKETBALL: Belleville West could contend in SWC in 2016-17 season

BND, By Dean Criddle, 11/15/16

The transition from being an assistant boys basketball coach to a head a girls coach couldn’t have gone much better for Belleville West coach Seth Garrett.

Led by senior Erika Harvey and a group of athletic underclassmen, the Maroons won 18 games and placed third in the Southwestern Conference. With four starters back, including heralded point guard Chamya Darough, this season Garrett is hopeful his 2016-17 Maroons squad will be among the elite teams in southern Illinois.

“We have some girls who can play. There is no doubt about that. And we’ve got a few girls back who played a lot of minutes for us last year, but we’re still a young basketball team,” Garrett said. “We’re going to start two sophomores and two juniors and five of our top six are underclassmen.
