Many thought after the loss of the Nations leading scorer Shyla Latone, that the Barons would be slightly down this year. That is not the case, the Lady Barons brings a host of talented returners that will give the Barons the talent they need at every position. During the off season the Lady Barons had the State Open Division runner up Pinewood down 10 but the Lady Barons barely fell short in the end. They had nice off season wins over Liberty (Las Vegas), Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas), Mt. Miguel and Mission Hills. Although off season doesn’t show what you will see in season, the Barons definitely showed they will be competing to play in the open division and a championship is not far fetched. Sr. guard Anneth Grijalba will pace the Barons with returners Julia Cosalan, Keyanna McCoy and La Verne Commit Laryssa Kure to help lead the attack. Barons are predicted to be one of the top teams in the county and state. They are currently ranked #37 in the state and they are looking to move up.
