“This is my first year with these young ladies.  We are still getting to know each other.  I am different from most coaches that they have had in the past, and we will have to ‘wait and see’ how they respond.  I have a new coaching staff to add to the picture as well. I believe we will be competitive, but we are in a perennially tough division - with North Penn, Hatboro, Souderton, and any of the Central Bucks schools, especially (league and district champ and state runner-up) South. Who knows where we will fall or how we will do.  I know we are stressing to get better every day.
Fun fact:
"Coaches Andria Koehler and LeeAnn Kramer are former Pennridge Ram players who both went on to have successful collegiate careers. They are 'giving back' to the school and the game. They are two assistant coaches with high expectations of our palyers."
