“I am incredibly proud of the work these young ladies put in this school year in the classroom and on the court,” head coach Sophie Windover said. “They have bright futures ahead of them with the work ethic and drive they possess.”

Wilmington’s 2022 season, Windover’s second as head coach, begins at the Mount St. Joseph University Sept. 2.
