While a whole bunch of freshmen contributed to an improved Melcher-Dallas Girls Basketball Squad, it was a junior, whose on court leadership helped the Saints to many of their victories this season. Emilie Krpan has been a starter for the Saints since her freshman season. Coach John Suntken tells KNIA/KRLS Krpan’s work ethic was most impressive this season. Krpan averaged 8.5 points per and grabbed team high 85 rebounds and had 46 blocks. Suntken adds as one of three returning seniors next year, expectations for her will be a little higher on and off the court.
