As the Siena Women's Basketball season is about to get under way, senior Lily Grenci is facing her final season as a Saint. She is coming off a great junior year individually, for which she was named an All-MAAC First Team selection and was second in the conference in scoring (15.2) and third in rebounding (7.8). Recently named a Preseason All-MAAC First teamer and a strong candidate for MAAC Player of the Year. both Grenci and her new Head Coach, Ali Jaques know the significance of this moment just before the season starts.
"There's a certain desperation seniors get when it's their last, first practice", said Jaques, "it's their last media day, it's their last everything."
For Grenci facing this final season is a motivator to improve along with her team, on her first three years at Siena. This season the program's slogan is, "It's A Whole New Ball Game" and Grenci is looking forward to making that happen.
