Women hope to improve on postseason performance

Western Women’s Basketball — Coming off a season in which the Western Colorado University women’s basketball team saw their first postseason appearance in seven years, the Mountaineers enter the 2019-20 campaign with expectations higher than ever.

“Our expectations are always high,” said head coach Lora Westling. “There isn’t a number attached to it, just an ability to execute what we do at a higher level than we have ever done. When you invest in the players and the execution of the process, the results will come.”

Western could be a dangerous team this season. They finished the 2018-19 season with a 16-11 record (12-10 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, or RMAC) despite losing then-junior Katie Dalton, sophomore Taytem Coleman and senior Katie Najvar over the course of the season due to injury.
