On Arianne Whitaker
“I think Arianne taking pressure off of me, Keiana and Lakelyn is huge. It adds another dimension to our team. I think Arianne is figuring things out and we’re figuring things out as well so it’s been huge.”

Coach Foster…
“My confidence in Arianne, if she’s going to do the little things that we know she’s capable of doing and play at a tempo that we know she can play in. Aryanna is sort of a rock and has to do a lot of things. Has to be the communicator in our defense scheme.”

 

Arianne Whitaker (West Class of 2015)… Co-Captain of Lakota West’s 2015 State Championship team and Firebird’s career shot blocking record holder.

Keep up the Hard Work Arianne! #WestPride #WEareLakota

“For Megan, I think we all have forgotten at times she is still a true freshman because of her maturity and mindset. From day one this season, she has been our backcourt leader, and more than anything, her success this year individually has come from the fact that she has been the one kid who comes in everyday to the gym with a mindset to work hard and get better,” said Filar.

Awesome Job Megan! #WestPride #WEareLakota
