Curtis leads talented Tigers

Lebanon — There is a new coach at the helm of the Lebanon Lady Tigers this winter, but the expectations are still extremely high.

The two-time defending conference and sectional champions return three starters and seven players overall — including last season’s Junior All-Star Katie Curtis.

“We sat down with the seniors last weekend and talked about what our goals are and honestly, we have several goals,” first-year head coach Beth DeVinney said. “We want to take things on a game by game basis. Right now we are just worried about Zionsville and we will focus on them and then take it game-by-game. Hopefully at the end of the season we are making a run to Indiana State and the state tournament. That has been a goal for these kids all along.

“Why not us? Why not the Lebanon Lady Tigers going to state this year?”

DeVinney takes over for Dave Ferrell, who resigned prior to the sectional championship game last season.

DeVinney comes from Seymour, where she helped turn around the Owls program.

The Tigers are ranked fifth in the pre-season Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association Poll that was released Monday afternoon.

Lebanon has been practicing for two weeks and still have nearly a week to go before the season opener against Zionsville this Saturday.

DeVinney likes the progress the Tigers have made in learning a new system.

“It has been good,” DeVinney said. “We have been at it for two weeks and have another week before our first game, so it has been kind of long. But the kids have worked really hard, they have a great work ethic about them and I really proud of them. They have been really excited about the things we have done in practice and working hard, so I can’t say enough about how hard they have worked.”
