Year One as a Head Coach will begin on Monday for KK Willis who recently took over St. Aloysius girl’s basketball team.

The upcoming season is a chance for the Lady Flashes to rebuild and restore discipline in the young team under fresh leadership.

“This is a year to learn that our confidence is in God and to get fundamentally sound and I want them to all get comfortable at what they are doing,” Willis said.

St. Al is currently equipped with a small roster including just one senior as they prepare for their first game against Hillcrest Academy.

“I got a girl who can really see the floor and we’ve got a lot of speed and defense but our goal is for all of our fear to be removed,” Willis added.

Willis is 2002 graduate of Porter’s Chapel Academy where she was a dominant force on the basketball court. She averaged 14 points per game as a freshman, 19.3 points per game as a sophomore and 16 points per game as a senior where she was named the Conference 7-A MVP.

“High School basketball was priceless and I would never trade it for anything because my dad was my disciplinarian and my older brother was my coach,” Willis said. They taught me everything and playing with my sisters is definitely a period that I’ll never trade.”

The Lady Flashes will be in action on Monday at 6 p.m. when they host Hillcrest.

“I’m confident even though we haven’t been in the gym like I wanted but they’ve really done well considering that and we do have some talent.”
