What to look for in a stick:

Low Sidewalls

Type of Pocket- Avoid solid, non-adjustable pockets (for example, Brine Paramount, DeBeer Gripper, Brine TXP. Please also look at this pocket and this one, I do not know what it is called but please avoid it. I see many sticks with this pocket at local stores.

The STX Runway is a great pocket.

There are pockets which have more complex pockets. These pockets will take more ongoing maintenance, but will be better to cradle, catch and throw with.

There are different shafts as well, but I think the pocket is most important!

Some recommendations:

2011 Season Highlights

The Lady Huskies had a successful Spring 2011 season, finishing with a 9 - 9 record and having 3 players selected as All-Conference players.  The Lady Huskies went on to beat city rival Naperville Central HS in the first round of the playoffs but fell to top seeded Hinsdale Central HS in the second round of the playoffs.

 The Lady Huskies look to build upon their Spring 2011 season as they are returning a majority of their varsity players and by playing in the Brush Hill league over the Summer.

Try-out, practice and game schedules for the Spring 2012 season will be posted soon.
