OUTLOOK

The loss of Florencia Luppani to a knee injury was a serious blow to the Warriors' league title hopes. When Luppani, a point guard who averaged 8.5 assists last season, tore her anterior cruciate ligament in a game with Capistrano Valley, Bangs said his team lost its leader. Before the season, Woodbridge lost another player--Lisa Weaver, a 5-11 sophomore forward who was expected to receive significant playing time--to the same type of knee injury. "We miss a lot in those two," Bangs said. "We would have been right up there among the top five squads in the county. Now the coaching staff has its work cut out for it." Not that Woodbridge is without talent. Quinn, who averaged eight points and eight rebounds two seasons ago, returns after the knee surgery that kept her sidelined last season. Ramos, who averaged eight points last season, Ripley, who came off the bench last season, and Lu, who was the junior varsity point guard last season, are among the Warriors' point-guard-by-committee team. Ramos and Oenning are good outside shooters, and Burgess should help Quinn inside.
