The new look Leopards are looking to make their mark on the SCIAC


Top Returners

The Leopards will be lead by returning first team All-SCIAC selection Clarissa Perez. Perez finished second in the nation in scoring last season and spent the summer playing in Brazil with the DIII All-Star team. Also coming back is Bailey Kurahashi. The guard set the La Verne single game made three-pointers record last season when she drained 11 shots from beyond the arc against St. Katherine.
