The Green River girls’ basketball team had a good season in 2022-23, but they would like to improve how they finish this season.

The Wolves went 13-12 last season and won the 4A Southwest Quadrant at 6-0. They finished second at the 4A West Regional tournament but went 0-2 at the 4A state basketball tournament.

The good news is GR returns eight of their top ten players from last season’s varsity roster. They lost only one starter who was a senior last year, but they also lost all-state guard Jayla Braden to an injury during the fall volleyball season. One of the key leaders will be senior Ella Stanton, who received all-conference honors last season.

WyoPreps caught up with Stanton, fellow seniors Madison Moffat and Brianna Strauss, and head coach Rick Carroll before a recent practice. We discussed how things are currently going, adjusting their style of play without Braden, what they still need to get done in practice before the season starts, some early goals to get off to a good start, and more.

This will be Carroll’s ninth season of his second stint as the Green River girls’ head coach. It’s his 33rd season overall at GRHS. The Wolves qualified for the state tournament in five straight seasons and six of the last eight.

Green River debuts in Casper at the Oil City Tip-off this weekend against Cheyenne South, Laramie, and Natrona County.
