Coaches letter:

The 2018-19 season is sure to be a big year for the Lady Cougars Basketball team! Head coach Erin Berger will return for her second year, along with JV coach Amber Moser.  We also welcome Moriah Hawkins and Katelyn Flanigan to the coaching staff!  Both have been a part of the BHS program in other ways, but will bring a fresh approach and new enthusiasm to our high school program this year.  

The graduation of five seniors also brings new opportunity for athletes to step up and fill some big shoes.  With a few returning players to lead the way, our group of young players will need to hit the ground running and be willing to grow and make the necessary changes that will make this team a force to be reckoned with as the season moves along.  KingCo remains one of the most competitive leagues in the state, and the Lady Cougars will focus on getting better every day, playing with great dedication and hustle, and judging our success by the amount of sweat (and smiles) found in the gym after both practices and games. 

Our plan is to chase our goals and build from last season, where we will have high energy on offense, defense, and on the bench; compete with a great amount of heart, dedication, and attention to detail; and displaying the teamwork and camaraderie that will make you proud to be a fan of Bothell High School. 

The Girl’s Basketball team believes that the measure of who you are is what you do with what you have.   From each spot on the floor and every seat on our bench, we will hold ourselves to the highest standard.  You can expect our coaches and players to work tirelessly to learn from our mistakes and make the most of all of our gifts.  We will lean on each other in good times and bad, building great memories and friendships along the way.

We want to thank all of our fans, parents, and administration for supporting us as we begin an exciting new season.  You will always be our greatest asset and we could not do it without you.  We are very excited for this upcoming season!  Go Cougars!
