LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall's women's basketball coach Kirsten Richter announced the addition of three freshmen to her 2012-13 roster. The 2016 class includes two guards and a forward.
"We are very excited for practice to start and to have our talented new players begin their Diplomat basketball careers," said Richter.
The newcomers look to build upon last season's success, which included a trip to the Centennial Conference (CC) semi-finals and an 18-8 record. The Diplomats return 10 players from last year's squad, including three starters.
