individual credentials to be a viable candidate for the first Conference 43 title. But they will have to prove that without the district’s player of the year and longtime head coach.
Insert the new coaching staff into the defending regular season champions’ locker room. In one corner, the former coaches daughter, Emily Webb, and former rival head coach Paula Scott.
Senior Sharda Beane, last year’s region player of the year, said it was a tough pillow to swallow losing Joanne Webb Fary.
“I was saddened by it because she had been my coach for the previous three years and it kind of hurt being my senior year I wasn’t going to have the same one,” Beane said.
But finding out that Scott had great success as a basketball player on the high school really got Beane excited and having a “Webb” still on staff was a bonus.
Scott and Webb both said they are excited to be on staff led by eight seniors including Tala Henderson, Lauren James, Raven Love, Aaliyah Morris-Lee, Anesha White, Tomasia Kelley, Trenae Henderson and Beane.
Scott was thrilled when the opportunity came to coach again after several years with Northumberland.
“Coaching is my passion and to go to Lancaster was a big change from being in Northumberland all my life, but it was a great move and I’m glad I made it,” Scott said. “I just want the girls to experience what I did—the joy of knowing you achieved something.”
