2016-17 Peru State Women’s Basketball Season Preview – Bobcats Open Friday Against Grace
After the first couple of weeks of official practice, there is optimism for the 2016-17 version of the Peru State Bobcat women’s basketball team. Ten newcomers have been working hard with four returners from the 15-16 team and are set on improving upon last year’s 6-25 overall and 3-19 Heart of America Athletic Conference (Heart) records. Second-year head coach Chuck Brewer has been pleased with the efforts of the squad in the early practices and anticipates the Bobcats will fare better this season. Brewer, who is in his 13th year as a collegiate coach, has 33 total years of coaching experience. Brewer will be assisted this season by second-year assistant Katie Potter and new graduate assistant Kendyl Rizea. Potter is a former four-year Bobcat starter while Rizea comes to Peru State from Heart conference opponent Graceland.
