2018-19 YEAR IN REVIEW
Michigan Tech is gearing up for the start of the 2019-20 regular season, which begins on Saturday at Lewis University at the GLIAC/GLVC Crossover tournament. The Huskies are coming off another outstanding season in 2018-19 in Head Coach Sam Hoyt's first campaign at Tech. Hoyt guided the Huskies to a 21-9 overall record and a 16-4 mark in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference a year ago. The Huskies claimed their 16th GLIAC North Division/Conference title last season and were the No. 3 seed in the conference tournament.

RETURNERS/NEWCOMERS
The Huskies return three GLIAC All-Conference players from a year ago. Abbie Botz, a forward from Little Chute, Wisconsin, led the Huskies in both scoring and rebounding during the 2018-19 campaign. Botz averaged 11.1 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in 30 contests leading to First Team All-Conference honors. Botz was selected to the Preseason All-GLIAC North Division team in October.

Cassidy Trotter, who hails from Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, was named Second Team All-GLIAC, GLIAC All-Defensive Team and to the GLIAC All-Tournament Team in 2018-19. Trotter played in all 30 contests a year ago with 29 starts and ranked second on the team in scoring at 10.6 points per game. She paced the Huskies in steals per game (2.6) and in assists per game with 3.6. Trotter joins Botz on this year's Preseason All-GLIAC North Division team.

Ellie Mackay, a guard from Novi, Michigan, made a major impact for the Huskies in her first collegiate season a year ago. She averaged 9.8 points per game and appeared in all 30 contests with 20 starts. Mackay connected on 41.7 percent of her three-point field goals while averaging 2.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. Mackay was the GLIAC Freshman of the Year following the 2018-19 season.

Sloane Zenner, Clara Johnson, Hannah Hobson, Alex Rondorf, Jordan Ludescher, Baillie McGirk, Ellie Welsh, and Michelle LaFave are key returner's and leaders on this year's team as well. In addition, the Huskies will have some new faces on the team this season with five incoming freshman who will look to battle for playing time. Claire Barghahn (White Lake, Mich.), Abby Bretzke (Beulah, Mich.), Sara Dax (Kewaunee, Wis.), Katelyn Meister (Wisconsin Dells, Wis.), and Kylie Mogen (Menomonie, Wis.) are all a part of the 2019-20 incoming class.
