OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Leopardettes will have a new look but familiar faces this year, as new head coach Jon Jacques runs a new system.

He and his squad are focusing on three areas, including pressure, passion and intensity. Tess Robbins, the team’s leader and one of the class’ best players, knows they can capitalize off high-intensity pressure on defense.

“We’re going to try to defend to pressure the other teams,” Robbins said. “Focusing on transition offense.”

Coach Jacques, knowing and appreciating the rich history of Leopardette basketball, looks forward to rebuilding the program and recreating a new legacy in Lindsay.
