Coach (season, record): Mike Logue (2nd season, 5-16)
2011-12 overall record: 5-16
2011-12 region record (place): 2-10 (sixth)
2011-12 playoff results: Did not qualify for the District 10 Class A playoffs.
Top players lost: None
Top returning players: Lyssa Knapp, Halie Van Ord, Alyssa Peterson, Kristen Williams
Assistant coach: Barry Lundmark
Outlook: Eisenhower went through some growing pains last season with a young team. The Knights didn’t have any seniors but that could translate into an experienced team this winter. Seniors Lyssa Knapp, Halie Van Ord and Alyssa Peterson are back along with sophomore guard Kristen Williams. Eisenhower is also bringing up seven freshmen that could make an impact this year. Coach Mike Logue is looking for more consistency on both ends of the floor, especially team defense. The Knights are in an interesting region that features three classifications. Eisenhower will need to use its experience to put together wins and contend for a playoff spot.
