Absolutely.

Obviously Taylor Higgenbotham is a big one to replace, but she's the only Senior this year. Next year Graettinger, Kaufmann, Hamm, Washington, and Pryor will all be seniors, Nichols as the reigning conference freshman of the year will be a sophomore and Gilmore will be a Junior. Plus we currently have 5 true freshmen on the roster who had limited playing time this year (doesn't look like we redshirted anyone, but I don't know if they're allowed to play a limited amount on a redshirt like in football or whatever).

Lots of returning talent, lots of seniors to be the new leaders...hell, we could start all seniors in game if we wanted to.

Across the conference, everyone who was a first-team conference except one player at USD are seniors...including 2-time conference player of the year SDSU's Macy Miller. So, the conference looks like it could be pretty well open for anyone to win.

Sam redshirted this year so she should still be a junior next year

I don't think that #15 Carla Flores Garcia played in any games this season. She is a freshman.

Correct. Both Sam and Carla were redshirted.
