It's a complete makeover for the Jefferson City Lady Jays.

The Lady Jays will have five new starters when they start the season this afternoon on the road against Pacific at the St. James Shootout.

"We know we're young," Jefferson City coach Shane Meyer said. "Even with some of our upperclassmen, when we get under the bright lights for our first game, it's going to be a new experience."

Jefferson City returns just two players with much varsity experience in junior forward Kezia Martin and sophomore guard Kaley Ruff.

"We're going to rely on those two to lead the way, at least from an experience standpoint," Meyer said.
