Three upperclassmen set to lead; sophomores fill key roles
With a girls basketball varsity roster consisting of just two seniors and one junior, there’s little question where the leadership will need to come from this season for the Medford Raiders.
Third-year head coach Jessica Faude is confident Sierra Hanson, Brynn Rau and Marissa Fronk are up for that task.
