Girls Basketball Coach of the Year: Roy Johnson, Woodland (copy)

Woodland High’s Roy Johnson is back to work this season.

Roy Johnson’s fourth season at the helm of the Lady Wolfpack finds him leading a team that came into the school as freshmen during his first year as a coach.

“We’re just very excited,” Woodland head coach Roy Johnson said. “This is the group that came in with me to Woodland. To see the growth of these young ladies has been tremendous and we just have high expectations. It just takes day-to-day work to get to where we want to go. We’re just going to continue to work hard and hopefully everything works out at the end of the year.”

The program has to be looking for another state playoff berth but they’ll have to work hard to replace four seniors. Aniya Holmes, Kyra Hart, Kailyn Kimpson and Jayla Parks all graduated at the end of the 2019 season.

Kimpson was the leading rebounder for the program last season with 143 rebounds. According to the MaxPreps roster for the Lady Wolfpack, there are eight seniors that will lead the team.

Amia Brown was the teams’ leading scorer during the 2018-19 school year with 11.7 points per game.
