Casper College Women's basketball team prepares for home opener

CASPER, Wyo. The women's basketball team at Casper College has a home opener on Friday, Nov. 1 against Trinidad State Junior College starting at 5:30 pm.

The Thunderbirds finished 27-7 last year and lost in the regional tournament. Last year the team had nine players and they have now improved to 14.

Head Coach Dwight Gunnare said, "The thing that is different from last year is our numbers, we lost 4 kids before the start of school last year. A couple because of visa issues and one because of a injury."

Gunnare also said he was really pleased the way their season went with only having 9 kids last year and to still win 27 games.

"It was a unique year for us and it was very gratifying. This year I think we are really opposite of where we were last year, we have great depth, we have six sophomore returning and eight incoming freshman," said Gunnare.
