Talented Crusaders focused on here and now

Henry (she’s committed to play next year at Long Beach State), Andersen (University of Portland), Sears (Westmont College) and sharpshooter Kory Oleson (Western Oregon) all singed with their respective college choices during the early signing period. Henry is one of the best posts in the state, a physical yet skilled player in the paint who blossomed at the state tournament last year. Andersen is a flashy, crowd-pleasing combo guard who can play point or run the wing with equal ability. Oleson can hit three-pointers from just about anywhere on the floor and can help Henry on the boards. There’s depth too, with the ultra athletic Wilhoite leading a bench brigade that includes Amyr Lowe, Josie Hookland and Brooke Elorriaga.
