A team doesn’t lose the likes of Dallas Weiss, Kaylee Eggers, Genevieve Reams, Briley Fisher and Aubry Bienemann and not face a bit of a rebuilding project.  But despite losing a deep, talented senior class to graduation, coach Kristi Hannemann believes her 2017 Huskies have plenty of potential.  “...
